Dolt45 wants to give his acceptance speech from the Gettysburg battlefield?

All I can say is malignantly cynical and completely obscene.

2. Yes, it's an utter disgrace. It's ludicrous. There's a reason the

hashtag #TrumpIsALaughingStock never seems to grow irrelevant or fade away.

speech at Gettysburg.

12. Why break with tradition!

He should give his capitulation speech at Appomattox Courthouse like that other loser did so long ago. Red state conservatives will appreciate Trumpís recognition of Confederate history!

21. It applies to the president in a very narrow scope

He can not order any white house/federal employees to participate. That would be forcing them to violate the Hatch Act. It could also be considered an abuse of power. IE: work during my political campaigning or get fired if they say no.

22. Office of Special Counsel Adv. Opinion.

 

The President and Vice President are not covered by any of the provisions of the Hatch Act. Accordingly, the Hatch Act does not prohibit President Trump from delivering his RNC acceptance speech on White House grounds. However, White House employees are covered by the Hatch Act, so there may be Hatch Act implications for those employees, depending on their level of involvement with the event and their position in the White House.

https://republicans-oversight.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/AO-re-Convention-speech-at-WH.pdf?ftag=MSF0951a18

Federal employees can attend and work on the event so long as they are on their own time. The same analysis would apply if Trump decides to accept the nomination at Gettysburg. Of course government employees may not be required to attend a political event as a condition of employment. But the reality is anyone working in the administration would likely want to attend.

The advisory opinion is correct.
