President Donald Trump will resume his campaign rally next week, June 19th in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as states begin loosen their coronavirus restrictions. He said, that he is also planning to visit Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, and Texas.
The recommencement of rallies came in the midst of rising coronavirus cases in the US and the “growing conversation in the United States around the issue of race”, said a CNN report.
Trump had not been able to hold a rally since March due to the restrictions implemented for the coronavirus.
“We are going to start our rallies back up now. We’ve had a tremendous run at rallies.” Trump said.
Tim Murtaugh, Trump’s campaign communication director told Fox in an interview on Wednesday that, “where we go, we will make sure it is safe to hold a rally and what safety precautions we put in place. We will talk about when we know exactly what kind of venue that is that we are talking about,” he added.
“But I would point out to the national media that I don’t remember them doing any social distancing shaming when they were doing all the coverage of the demonstrations that were going on.”
Trump has yet to announce where he will accept his nomination for a second term, but GOP sources claim that Jacksonville, Florida is the front runner.
