It’s easy to see that Democrats and their willful, willing cheerleaders in the ‘mainstream media’ are trying to do everything they can to prevent President Donald Trump from getting back out on the campaign trail and hold live, in-person rallies.
It’s because they know when the president travels, he always generates enthusiasm (and higher polling).
And his upcoming campaign rally in Tulsa June 20, his first since being ‘shut down’ over coronavirus, is proving that.
According to campaign manager Brad Parscale, the response to the rally has been massive and overwhelming.
“The grassroots support behind President Trump’s reelection is something no campaign has ever seen,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale told Fox News. “Just as more than a million people have registered for tickets to the President’s rally this weekend [in Oklahoma], they are also donating to help his campaign in record numbers. There is an enthusiasm gap – it is real and it is wide. President Trump’s supporters would run through a brick wall to vote for him. Nobody is running through a brick wall for Joe Biden.”
But of course, Democrats and the Leftist media are doing everything they can to damper enthusiasm for the president, including trying to “COVID-shame” him from holding rallies.
“The Far Left Fake News Media, which had no Covid problem with the Rioters & Looters destroying Democrat run cities, is trying to Covid Shame us on our big Rallies. Won’t work!” the president tweeted Monday.
It’s not clear how many people will actually get a ticket, but in the past the campaign has often set up large video screens outside of venues so they can project the president’s appearance to massive crowds gathered outside.
The Trump campaign also noted that people attending the rally will have temperatures checked and be given masks. Also, no one is twisting their arms to go; the want to be there.
“Our testing is so much bigger and more advanced than any other country (we have done a great job on this!) that it shows more cases,” Trump continued. “Without testing, or weak testing, we would be showing almost no cases.”
He added: “Testing is a double edged sword—Makes us look bad, but good to have!!!”
Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to make it sound as though the president isn’t wanted in a red city in a red state he won in 2016 by a lot.
“Tulsa doesn’t want Trump and public health experts warn this could be extremely dangerous,” Democratic National Committee War Room Director Adrienne Watson said in a statement, according to Fox News.
“But Trump has shown no concern for the safety and wellbeing of Americans for the entirety of his presidency — why start now? He is only concerned about his own reelection and distracting from his failed response to the pandemic that led to more than a hundred thousand Americans dying and 20 million unemployed.”
Right. Trump only shut off travel to China in January, closed our borders as coronavirus spread, cut off travel to Europe, and invoked the Defense Production Act, which wasn’t needed because American companies stepped up to manufacture all of the testing and personal protective equipment on their own to combat coronaviris.
As to the people who became unemployed, the president literally had nothing to do with state decisions to shut down economies. And now, it is Democrat-run states that are taking the most time in reopening. Why is that?
Oh, and about that phony Tulsa social distancing concern, again, as the president said, Democrats had nothing to say about it during the George Floyd protests – and riots – that none of them condemned.
Which put Americans in danger.
And destroyed their businesses, leaving them unemployed.
