Trump campaign blames protesters for disappointing turnout at Tulsa rally
June 22, 2020
TULSA, Okla - President Donald Trump is hoping to outrun the coronavirus pandemic as he bids for reelection in 2020. His return to the campaign trail Saturday night in Tulsa demonstrates just how difficult that's going to be.
Trump skipped a planned appearance outside the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., that campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh blamed on "radical protesters, coupled with a relentless onslaught from the media," who "attempted to frighten off the president's supporters" with their warnings about the pandemic risk.
