OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Friday afternoon, the Save America campaign announced that former President Donald Trump will not appear at the rally scheduled for Friday night in Greenwood.

Severe weather — including winds up to 60 mph, damaging hail and the potential for isolated tornadoes — was listed as the reason for the postponement.

The rally has been rescheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday.

Candidate for governor Charles Herbster was scheduled as the original guest speaker, with additional speakers including former Counsel to the President Kellyanne Conway and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. Trump and Herbster are both confirmed to be returning for the rally Sunday, but it is unclear whether other guest speakers will be able to return for the rescheduled date.

Crowds have been lined up and waiting since early Friday morning for a chance to see the 45th President of the United States and the other faces of notable right-wing figures. The rally was being held at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, which is located between Lincoln and Omaha just off of the interstate.
