JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - President Trump’s scheduled rally in Jackson has been canceled.
A Trump campaign official says the scheduled rally was canceled due to the health and well-being of the eastern seaboard because of Hurricane Florence.
The president was to be in Jackson this Friday to support Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith.
Hyde-Smith's campaign issued a statement agreeing with the decision.
"Mississippi residents understand what it's like to prepare for, endure and recover from a major hurricane," according to the campaign.
