The Washington Post and Fox News both reported on the possibility of Trump delivering the speech at the White House, with each citing a source familiar with the talks in reports late Tuesday.
The outlets noted that the White House lawn is one of several venues being considered and that nothing has been finalized as plans for the convention remain fluid.
Neither the Trump campaign nor the Republican National Committee (RNC) immediately responded to requests for comment from The Hill.
Republicans initially planned to hold Trump’s acceptance speech in Charlotte, N.C., though those plans were scrapped after a clash between the president and Gov. Roy Cooper (D-N.C.) over Cooper’s insistence that the event comply with state safety guidance regarding the coronavirus.
