Trump Camp Claims 800,000 Ticket Requests For Tulsa

Forbes reports:

The Trump campaign has put out conflicting figures on how many tickets have been registered for their June 20 rally in Tulsa, with campaign manager Brad Parscale now claiming 800,000 people registered for tickets despite the venue seating just over 19,000.

The rally has been mired in controversy ever since it was announced due to both its racial and public health implications. It was initially scheduled one June 19th, coinciding with Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S., amid a period of civil unrest over racist policing.

Public health experts have also warned that such a densely packed crowd in an indoor setting could have dire public health implications amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
