No conventions. Just large protest gatherings allowed by this Governor.

Good for him!!!

Good job! The people of NC come first Thank you governor

'amid the pandemic' ? Great. But you aren't doing anything about the protests? I wonder why you don't have 'health concerns' now? And when the pandemic comes back with a vengeance, you morons will blame Trump and say he opened the country too soon. Unbelievable.

And that goes for anywhere. NC or any other state, were all in this together

Good for him!! It’s called responsibility!! Oh yeah, Trump doesn’t know the meaning.

Thank you NC_Governor
