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.
