President Trump said he plans to host the first campaign rally since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Trump told reporters on the White House on Wednesday that he plans to hold rallies later in Arizona, Florida and North Carolina.
The Tulsa rally is scheduled for Friday, June 19. It will be the first since the March 2 rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We had an enormous run at the rallies. I don’t think we’ve had an empty seat since we got off the escalator, ”Trump said at the round table meeting with the black supporters in the White House Wardrobe Room.
“As you know, they did a great job with COVID in Oklahoma state,” said Trump.
“We’re going to North Carolina at the right time. The governor is a little back there, a little behind. “
In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump wrote There is a “BIG REQUEST” for rallies and “they will start again soon, maybe next week!”
Raucous rallies are seen by Trump and his allies as important events energizing the bases. In addition, Trump are gaining substantially free publicity in swing state markets.
In his interview with the Oval Office last month, he told Trump Post that COVID-would have been “great disadvantage” if he had blocked the rallies before November 19.
“I hope we can get the rallies back before the election. Actually, I think this is very important. ”
“I think it would have been a big disadvantage for me if this didn’t happen, if we couldn’t get the rallies back,” he continued. “People want rallies. They want to have them very bad. They were informative, but fun. “
