Replace: Trump rally on June 19 at eight p.m. in Tulsa – Information – The Miami Information-File
President Donald Trump plans to hold a rally at the BOK center in Tulsa on Friday, June 19 at 8 p.m.
The president told reporters on Wednesday that he was going to visit Tulsa. A source close to Rep. Kevin Hern, R-Tulsa, said the White House confirmed the visit.
“There is no better place for (Trump) to restart his energetic campaign rallies than here in Tulsa,” said Hern on Twitter. “I look forward to seeing the President in the First District next week!”
It will be Trump’s first rally since March when most of America began sheltering to slow the spread of COVID-19.
“You did a great job, as you know, on COVID in the state of Oklahoma,” Trump told reporters after a report from one in attendance for the remarks.
Governor Kevin Stitt, who is based in Tulsa, said, “We are honored that President Trump has accepted our invitation to our great state. The president is making Oklahoma his first campaign freeze since March 2, and his visit here confirms that Oklahoma is the national example of responsible and safe reopening. “
It will be Trump’s first state visit as president. He held rallies and participated in a fundraiser in Oklahoma in 2016.
Trump’s announcement comes as his approval rating in Oklahoma is 58%, according to a poll by Amber Integrated of Oklahoma City last week. That hasn’t changed much from its 61% approval rating in an Amber Integrated poll in early April. The polls polled 500 likely voters and had an error rate of 4.4%.
In the June poll, 43% said they strongly support the way Trump perceives his job as president, while 15% said they agree.
The Republican vote in the poll was 87%. For the Democrats it was 22% and for the independent voters it was 40%.
Trump received 65% of the vote in Oklahoma in 2016. According to Amber Integrated’s poll conducted last week, he leads alleged Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with 55% to 36%, with the rest undecided or declining to answer.
