Despite widespread concerns about the coronavirus, Trump supporters are already lining up to get their seats inside the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. ahead of the president’s MAGA rally on Saturday.
President Donald Trump has not held a rally since early March, when he held court at Bojangles’ Coliseum in Charlotte, N.C.
The campaign has rushed to bring the rallies back, targeting venues in states with few COVID-19 restrictions after reopening.
Oklahoma just reported a record increase in new coronavirus cases, and the rally will be held indoors instead of in an outdoor stadium.
