President Trump will be back on the campaign trail with his first rally since coronavirus on June 19th, according to reports.
The first rally will take place in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Based on the date and location, Trump may be setting the stage to make an address about race in the United States.
Business Insider notes:
“Some have pointed out that Trump’s first rally would be held on Juneteenth — a holiday to celebrate the end of slavery that is commemorated by Black Americans as an independence day — in a city where a race massacre took place 99 years ago.”
When asked for comment on the date and location of the rally Trump 2020 Senior Advisor Katrina Pierson responded:
“As the part of Lincoln, Republicans are proud of the history of Juneteenth, which is the anniversary of the last reading of the Emancipation Proclamation. President Trump has built a record of success for Black Americans, including unprecedented low unemployment prior to the global pandemic, all-time high funding to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and criminal justice reform. Joe Biden spent last Juneteenth raising money ataa private fundraiser and defending comments he made celebrating his work with segregationist senators.”
In 2016, Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Oklahoma by a margin of 36 percentage points.
Trump has also said he’s planning more upcoming events in Florida, Texas, and Arizona.
