Trump's re-election campaign in Tulsa was the biggest indoor gathering since the outbreak. The President had boasted about almost one million people requesting tickets for the 19,000 seat arena in Oklahoma. However, expectations were not met and the outside area Trump had designated for the overflowing crowd was discarded.
President Trump's decision to have the campaign rally in Oklahoma is as controversial as the day he had originally chosen for it, June 19th. The date marks the end of slavery for black people and the holiday is known as Juneteenth. Trump eventually changed the date. However, the place is still questioned. In 1921 Tulsa became the scene of a massacre in which almost 300 black people died.
According to North America reporter, Anthony Zurcher's analysis, while the campaign wasn't a total flop, the President "may have needed more than a comfort-blanket rally that harkens back to better days".
