ACU Chair Matt Schlapp and former D.C. Democrat Party Chair Scott Bolden weigh in on'Outnumbered Overtime.' A CNN reporter raised eyebrows on Monday with a curious explanation of why President Trump is considering giving his GOP renomination acceptance speech at the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield. TRUMP SAYS HE WILL GIVE GOP CONVENTION SPEECH AT WHITE HOUSE OR GETTYSBURG, DECISION COMING'SOON' Trump announced on Twitter that he has "narrowed down" the choice of venue for his Aug. 27 remarks to "The Great Battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the White House, Washington, D.C." Fox News reported last week that the Trump campaign was considering the possibility of having him deliver his convention acceptance speech on the South Lawn of the White House. However, CNN White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond suggested that Trump's potential decision to give the speech at Gettysburg is based on his apparent admiration for the Confederacy. CNN'S BRIAN STELTER CALLED OUT FOR'TONE-DEAF' CRITICISM OF CONSERVATIVE MEDIA FOR QUESTIONING JOE BIDEN'S MENTAL HEALTH "We've reported that President Trump is considering his GOP nomination acceptance speech from the White House, but amid some criticism of that potential venue, the president is now floating another one," Diamond reported.
