The party was initially supposed to be held at the Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue but the head of state and his campaign team were forced to move it given the coronavirus restrictions.

The Independent reported on November 3, that about 400 guests were likely to attend according to officials from the Trump re-election secretariat.

Washington D.C restricted public gathering to 50 people following a wave of coronavirus infection in the region, but Trump described the policy as crazy.

The large party will be indoors in the East Room, an event and reception room in the White House and the largest room used for dances, receptions, press conferences, ceremonies and concerts.

On Friday, October 30, the president first hinted he settled on the venue, but was considering the White House, The Hill reported.

“The mayor has shut down Washington DC. We haven’t made a determination. We have certain rules and regulations. I don’t know if you’re allowed to use the hotel or not. We will probably stay here or pick another location,” he said.

"We're thinking about moving it over to the White House. We are looking at that right now. It's going to be a great night,” he confirmed.

The incumbent said the presidential winner should be declared before Wednesday, November 4.

He also poked holes in a Supreme Court decision that allowed absentee ballots to be counted days after the election day, a rule that he claimed could snowball into violence.

"The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is a very dangerous one. It will allow rampant and unchecked cheating and will undermine our entire systems of laws. It will also induce violence in the streets. Something must be done!" Trump wrote on Facebook.
