The campaign rented a ballroom in the Hilton but expects to do a small event — at least compared to most of Trump's big rallies, according to one person familiar with the plans. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe strategy.
Mitt Romney spent $25,000 on a fireworks show over Boston Harbor that never went off in 2012, the year he lost to President Obama. There are no plans for Trump fireworks on Tuesday, the person said. Trump is “superstitious” and doesn't want to jinx things by planning a big victory celebration, the person added.
Trump's decision means that both presidential nominees will spend next Tuesday night in New York. Clinton and her supporters will gather about two miles away from the Hilton at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, a building with a symbolic architectural feature: a large glass ceiling.
