Trump had been scheduled to attend a rally at the Wave Convention Center Friday evening in Virginia Beach.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency Wednesday, September 30, afternoon, allowing emergency responders to begin to prepare for the storm.
Trump says in a statement he’d been expected 10,000 to attend the event.
He says he plans to reschedule soon.
He’s still planning to travel to Tennessee for a rally Saturday, October 3.
