Trump made one announcement about holding rallies that everyone was waiting for
Donald Trump canceled all campaign rallies back in March due to the coronavirus.
Since then he’s taken a hit in the polls.
But now Donald Trump made one announcement about holding rallies that everyone was waiting for.
Donald Trump’s mega-rallies are back on.
The President’s campaign received an unbelievable 800,000 ticket requests for a rally Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma in an arena that fits 19,000 people.
Fake news reporters – after spending two weeks cheering tens of thousands of rioters packed into the streets – suddenly rediscovered their concern about coronavirus.
The Tulsa World published an editorial demanding the President cancel the rally.
“Tulsa is still dealing with the challenges created by a pandemic. The city and state have authorized reopening, but that doesn’t make a mass indoor gathering of people pressed closely together and cheering a good idea. There is no treatment for COVID-19 and no vaccine. It will be our health care system that will have to deal with whatever effects follow,” the editorial read.
In addition to supposed health concerns, the editorial claimed the rally would incite violent protests.
“Trump, a divisive figure, will attract protests, the vast majority of which we expect to be peaceful. But there may also be confrontation and inappropriate behavior from some. His 2016 Tulsa rally provoked a heated response for some, and his ability to provoke opponents has only grown since then,” the Tulsa World editorial board wrote.
“When the president of the United States visits your city, it should be exciting. We think a Trump visit will be, but for a lot of the wrong reasons, and we can’t welcome it,” the editorial concluded.
Donald Trump was having none of this fake news coronavirus double standard.
The President called out the fake news for encouraging all the protests and mayhem in the streets but now trying to “COVID shame” his campaign into canceling the Tulsa rally.
President Trump said that would not happen and the rally was still on.
“The Far Left Fake News Media, which had no Covid problem with the Rioters and Looters destroying Democrat run cities, is trying to Covid Shame us on our big Rallies. Won’t Work!”
