‘We’re going into North Carolina at the appropriate time. The governor’s a little backward there, a little bit behind,’ Trump said, blasting Democratic Governor Roy Cooper, whohas refused letting the Republican National Convention to fill a stadium for Trump’s nomination acceptance speech.

When asked following the Cabinet Room event Wednesday afternoon about his trip to Dallas, Texas for a fundraiser on Thursday, Trump revealed he will travel next Friday, June 19 to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a rally.

‘They’ve done a great job with COVID, as you know, in the state of Oklahoma,’ Trump said.

He claimed: ‘We’re on our way to a very big comeback.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Tuesday morning, Trump first revealed he wanted to bring back the rallies as early as next week.

‘BIG DEMAND! Starting up again soon, maybe next week!’ the president tweeted, suggesting that the rallies could be held outside just like the protests.

The tweet included a post from journalist Byron York who said: ‘Given recent gatherings, seems reasonable time for President Trump to resume holding rallies. Could be held outside. Give out masks at entrance, encourage use. But mass gatherings are now OK. Biden could re-start, too, of course.’
