Donald Trump was bumped from the lineup at the Republican National Convention after planners had to rearrange the schedule when the first day of the convention was canceled due to Tropical Storm Isaac. For the past few weeks, Trump has been touting a surprise that he was preparing for the convention.
Top Romney aide Russ Schriefer said Trump wasn't speaking because could no longer make it on a conference call with reporters Monday.
"It's my understanding that Mr. Trump was in town yesterday," Schriefer said. But with Monday was canceled, "he couldn't make it the rest of the week."
