More Than 1 Million People Sign Up for Trump Rallies, Democrats Outraged
Much to the Democratic Party’s dismay, President Donald Trump’s re-election team celebrated as close to 1 Million MAGA supporters signed up to attend the President’s rallies.
On a social media post, the President boasted that nearly one million people had requested tickets for his upcoming Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This came as a great surprise since the rally was just announced last week.

On Sunday alone, Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, wrote that more than 800,000 MAGA supporters have asked to join the Saturday night rally. “Biggest data haul and rally signup of all time by 10x. Saturday is going to be amazing!” Parscale wrote. The campaign team is looking into creating a second event to accommodate the number of people who wanted to see the President due to the influx of Trump supporters.
As the threat of the Chinese virus loomed ahead, Parscale reminded attendees to get a temperature check, wear masks, and sanitize before entering the BOK center. “There will be precautions for the heat and bottled water as well,” the campaign manager assured. https://twitter.com/parscale/status/1272543199647666176 Saturday night’s event marked Trump’s comeback after the President put a hold on his massive MAGA rallies, first due to the threat of a Chinese virus, and second, as a direct result of the political turmoil over the death of African-American, George Floyd who died under police custody.
Moreover, to gain leverage, the President is also planning to have a rally before the Alabama run-off to support former football coach, Tommy Tuberville’s senate campaign. According to reports from CNN, the football coach is currently leading the polls against his rival, former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. Previously, the relationship between Trump and Sessions has soured over the former Senator’s refusal to “recluse” his statement on the Russian investigation.
Jeff, you had your chance & you blew it. Recused yourself ON DAY ONE (you never told me of a problem), and ran for the hills. You had no courage, & ruined many lives. The dirty cops, & others, got caught by better & stronger people than you. Hopefully this slime will pay a big... https://t.co/AJPUBTPCnT— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2020
Trump’s ultimate comeback had become a threat to the Democratic party. In fact, even left-wing media, NBC displayed a glaring sign of hypocrisy for encouraging George Floyd protests in Brooklyn, while condemning the President MAGA rallies.
In a Twitter post, NBC praised the massive crowd of Black lives Matter protesters and LGBTQ activists on Sunday, at Brooklyn Museum Plaza. This is in spite of the fact that some of the protesters failed to wear facial coverings, or even practice social distancing.

On the other hand, the media outlet criticized Trump’s announcement for resuming his MAGA rallies, which were armed with temperature checks, and hand sanitizers. NBC News wrote that “health experts are questioning” the President’s decision to resume his iconic rallies.
Other Democrats such as failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Rep. Val Demings, and failed Democratic nominee, Bernie Sanders, expressed their outrage over Trump’s decision.

Unfortunately, Florida is experiencing a new surge in COVID-19 cases. I urge you to do everything you can to protect yourself and your neighbors. Wear a mask. Limit gatherings.— Rep. Val Demings (@RepValDemings) June 11, 2020
Trump wants 15,000 delegates cheering him at his GOP convention in Florida. No social distancing. His rejection of medical advice endangers not only those there but those they come in contact with. Trump's a threat to the health and well-being of the country. He must be defeated.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) June 11, 2020
