"Thank you to all who waited in line for our Save America Rally tonight in Greenwood, Nebraska," Trump wrote. "Because of severe weather, including the possibility of 60 mph+ wind, hailstorms, and maybe even tornadoes, I will not be coming to Nebraska tonight, but rather, weather permitting, will be there this Sunday night, May 1st.

"The most important thing is to keep you safe, and that cannot be done with such a terrible forecast. Thank you to Charles W. Herbster and his wonderful staff for working so professionally with us. See you on Sunday!"

The screenshot of the tweet from the National Weather Service stated: "Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop late this afternoon with the with the threat for severe storms increasing by early evening. Large hail, strong damaging winds, flash flooding  and a few tornadoes will be possible."
