President Trump canceled plans on Wednesday to attend an event orchestrated by Pennsylvania Republicans to highlight allegations of election irregularities.

Trump was expected to join Rudy Giuliani and other legal representatives affiliated with his campaign at the event at a hotel in Gettysburg, but it was scrapped at the last moment. The trip was never officially on Trump’s schedule, but multiple news outlets reported he planned to make an appearance.

The cancellation came shortly after a campaign adviser, Boris Epshteyn, shared that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Epshteyn was at a news conference last week alongside Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, who were both planning to make the trip to Gettysburg.

The Republican Party of Pennsylvania had announced the event would take place at a Gettysburg hotel rather than the state Capitol. Some in the party have pushed allegations of fraud in the vote in the state, but there is no evidence of widespread irregularities.
