Trump Rally Numbers Ignored

Trump Rally Numbers Ignored

President Donald Trump and his campaign held a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, June 20. Over one million people requested tickets to the rally despite COVID-19 concerns. Democrats claim that the number of ticket requests and the rally turnout were sabotaged by teenagers.

Even still, there was massive support for Trump, even abroad. If you’ve seen the mainstream media’s coverage of the rally, you’ll likely think there was little support for our President. That’s simply not true, with 4.2 million views the day of the rally, there was a tremendous amount of support.

However, the left claims that teens, TikTok users, and K-pop fans reserved tickets to leave seats empty in the rally were debunked by campaign staff. Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, stated that the leftists and trolls have no idea of how the campaign’s rallies work. He added that the campaign has a system that weeds out invalid phone numbers, which are required for an RSVP.

Trump campaign spokesman, Tim Murtaugh, doubled down on Parscale’s claim that protestors played a role in the less than expected turnout. He issued a statement that large groups gathered outside the arena and created a threatening atmosphere.

COVID-19 likely had a part in the crowd size as well. This led to many people watching the rally from home.

Some people have noted that if these claims of sabotage are true, it would represent the hypocrisy of the left. Democrats claim to oppose foreign interference with the election process, notably Russia using social media to manipulate public perception. TikTok is owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based company, which would fall under election interference if Democrat claims are true.
