Within 24 hours of signing a contract to host a private event at Ohio State’s Schottenstein Center, the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has cancelled the event.
Trump was slated to host a private event Friday evening in one of the center’s auxiliary gyms, not the main floor of the auditorium, said OSU spokesman Chris Davey.
Details on the event were not made public or released to the media by the Trump campaign, but on Thursday morning, a day after the contract was signed, The Lantern confirmed the event was scheduled.
Davey said that the campaign did not give a reason for cancelling the event.
A spokesman for Trump’s campaign in Ohio did not immediately return a request for comment.
Nick Davis, a third-year in environmental resource management and president of OSU’s chapter of Students for Trump, and Laurel Lesley, a second-year in marketing and director of communications for OSU’s chapter of College Republicans, said they were not immediately available for comment.
