Why did Trump’s Tulsa campaign restart fall flat? | DW News

US President Donald Trump has held his first major rally in months in a bid to boost his reelection chances in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday. The crowd ultimately appeared lighter than expected, with thousands of empty seats. Campaign officials also scrapped plans for the president to first address an overflow crowd outdoors. Trump blamed unvavorable media coverage and protesters blocking attendees from getting access for the low turnout. Health officials warned the event could spark a surge in COVID-19 casesand just hours before the rally, Trump’s campaign reported that six members of staff who had been helping set up the event had tested positive for the virus. As it turned out many TikTok and Twitter users trolled the Trump campaign by reserving tickets for the event without actually showing up.
