Trump Confirms Nearly 1 Million People Have Requested Tickets For Oklahoma Rally
First Trump rally since the coronavirus lockdown
President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted that almost one million people have requested tickets for his upcoming rally in Oklahoma.
The president tweeted:
"Almost One Million people request tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!"
Almost One Million people request tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2020
This will be Trump's first scheduled rally since the coronavirus lockdown measures.
Last week, Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted the figure for the event at the 19,000-seat BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla - which was only 200,000 at the time.
"Trump #MAGA Rally in Tulsa is hottest ticket ever!" he posted on Twitter.
"Over 200K tickets already & it’s not even political season."
"Looking at a 2nd event in town to get more people to be w/ @realDonaldTrump Gonna be GREAT in the most open state in nation! Register."
Parscale later tweeted to note an uptick in applications.
Correction now 300,000! Going to be epic! https://t.co/36wBjA7duT— Brad Parscale (@parscale) June 12, 2020
But now Trump has confirmed the ticket requests have reached almost one million.
The rally will be Trump's first in weeks, which has recently been rescheduled for June 20.
The disclaimer reads:
"By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury."
Unsurprisingly, Democrats blasted Trump for his decision to restart his campaign rallies, saying the events could spread the coronavirus.
Hillary Clinton reacted to the Trump's scheduled rally:
"If your rallies come with a liability waiver, you shouldn’t be holding them."
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt said Trump's visit confirms the state is a "national example in responsibly and safely reopening."
