Trump elects Tulsa June 16 for campaigning
President Donald Trump plans to hold his first Coronavirus-era rally on June 19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And he says he plans for more shows in Florida, Texas and Arizona.

Trump made the announcement when he met Wednesday afternoon for a roundtable with a handful of African-American supporters.

Trump's protests often attract thousands, but have been on the Hetas since March 2 due to the coronavirus epidemic that has now hit the U.S. Has killed more than 110,000 people. America

"A beautiful new place, brand new. We're looking forward to it, "Trump said during a White House event." He has done a great job with COVID, as you know, Oklahoma State. "

The rally will take place on June 19, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Tulsa has its own troubling story about race. Its thriving African-American business community was ousted in 1921, when a racist white mafia killed hundreds of black residents. Black residents attempted decades of reconstruction, only to erase their work during the 1960s urban renewal.

The Trump campaign has become eager to resume protests as it tries to reverse the epidemic, with cases even rising in parts of the country. This year he has focused most of his rallies on the battlegrounds, though Oklahoma is a Republican.

Trump led Oklahoma by more than 36 percentage points in 2016, more than double the total vote for his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Oklahoma was the first state to initiate coronovirus restrictions in late April with the reopening of salons, spas and hair salons. Republican Governor Kevin Stitt's most recent reopening phase does not limit the size of group meetings beginning June 1 and decides how close local business owners and officials are to following social guidelines. .

Stitt said the state was honored that the president had visited.

"The president is closing his first campaign to Oklahoma since March 2, and his visit here confirms that Oklahoma is a national example of responsible and safe reopening," Stitt said in a statement released Wednesday by his office.

State health officials say 47 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Tulsa County on Tuesday, the latest figures available from the county. This brought the total reported cases to 1,308 in the county. The number of current active cases was 274, an increase of 13% from Monday. A new death brought the county's COVID-19 death to 973.

In a statement, Tulsa Mayor G.S.T. Barnum said the city was still working to confirm details about Trump's visit and the location of the rally.

Campaign officials did not answer the question of why Tulsa was chosen and security precautions would be taken for attendees.

The prospects of Trump's reelection largely depend on how the country sidesteps its administration's response to coronovirus, as well as their reaction to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died of a police officer Died under pressure. Floyd's neck on his knee for 8 minutes

A spokesperson for Trump's campaign tweeted Wednesday the trailer-style video of the film, announcing, "This month we're back."
