(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Former President Donald Trump is not planning to join the other GOP presidential candidates who will be appearing in the July 4th parades. Steven Cheung, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, revealed to the New York Times that the former President was going to be spending the national holiday traditionally campaigning.

On Saturday, prior to Independence Day, Trump held a rally in South Carolina. This was after he had attended the Moms for Liberty conference in Philadelphia the previous day. While Trump himself is not planning on attending any traditional parades, his campaign will still be represented there.

This is something that Cheung also pointed out by noting that in many campaigns and events in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, Trump’s campaign is going to be actively represented especially as a large number of Americans are “sick” of President Joe Biden’s “failed leadership.”

David Kochel, a Republican adviser and strategist in Iowa argued that Trump played by a completely “different set of rules” as he is a celebrity and his status as a former President allows him greater flexibility.

Other Republican candidates are planning on attending the celebratory events on the Fourth of July. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is scheduled to walk in two New Hampshire parades according to the Concord Monitor. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former Rep. Will Hurd of Texas, and Michigan businessman Perry Johnson will all be a part of the Amherst and Merrimack parades. While Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina will attend the Merrimack parade. Former Vice President Mike Pence will be in Urbandale, Iowa, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy in Merrimack, N.H.
