Trump's campaign said Thursday that the rally at the Wave Convention Center in Virginia Beach was canceled, citing a state of emergency declared ahead of Hurricane Joaquin's expected arrival on the East Coast.

"While we were expecting 10,000 people based on demand, and it would have been a happening, everyone's safety is of far more importance to me," the real estate mogul said in a statement. "We will reschedule the event very soon and I look forward to being there."
