The COVID Diaries – 85 21st June
Donald Trump’s big launch rally for his presidential re-election campaign turned out to be a big flop.
Having claimed over a million people were interested in attending, only about 6,200 people turned up to the 19,000-capacity BOK Centre in Tulsa on Saturday evening, according to a Forbes report that interviewed a fire marshal from the event, and an outdoor rally scheduled for overflow attendees was cancelled by Trump’s campaign.
Mr Trump boasted on Twitter prior to the rally that the campaign received one million ticket requests. Did none of his campaign team have the nerve to tell him how far out he was?
