“Lawyers’ press conference at the Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 am, ”the US president first tweeted on Saturday morning, apparently in reference to the four-star hotel in the city center.
But Mr. Trump quickly corrected his mistake, following up on the first tweet by writing “Four Season’s Landscaping!”, Then another that read, “Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping – 11:30 am!”
A few minutes later, he sent out a fourth tweet, saying, “Lawyer press conference at Four Season’s Landscaping, Philadelphia. Enjoy! “
An online search shows that Four Seasons Total Landscaping is a local landscaping company on the outskirts of Philadelphia, established in 1992.
It’s unclear why the Trump campaign is holding a press conference there, but it comes amid efforts by Mr. Trump and his lawyers to cast doubt on an election he’s set to lose to Joe Biden .
In Pennsylvania, the final state election tally has yet to be announced due to delays in the vote count following a surge in postal ballots amid the coronavirus pandemic.
If Democratic candidate Mr Biden wins the state – as expected – he will have accumulated more than the 270 electoral seats needed to win the presidency.
Mr Trump’s announcement that a major election press conference would be held at a small landscaping company rather than a large hotel has confused reporters.
“I just arrived at the scene of the big press conference announced by President Trump,” Sky News’s Mark Stone tweeted.
“Slightly surreal location… not the Four Seasons Hotel but a landscaping company in an industrial area on the outskirts of Philadelphia. “
Jeremy Roebuck, reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer, tweeted: “There is a big difference between the first location announced, the Four Seasons hotel in the city center, and what it quickly changed to… this building with the same name in the northeast.
Shortly after making the press conference announcement, Mr. Trump falsely tweeted, “I WON THIS ELECTION, A LOT!”
In fact, Mr. Trump seems almost certain to lose the election and will have lost the popular vote of over 4 million votes by the time the count is over.
