President Trump hits the campaign trail on Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses in 1921.
The attack, back then, was carried out on the ground and from private aircraft.
The onslaught resulted in the death of an estimated 300 people and destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the district — the wealthiest black community in the United States, at the time, known as “Black Wall Street.”
Mr. Trump’s “Make America Great Again!” rally did not win friends and influence people, as anticipated.
The 19,000-seat BOK Center was far from the expected crowd capacity. Moreover, protesters marched about a block away from the entrance to the arena, bearing signs with messages like “Black Lives Matter” and “Go home Donald,” and health officials pushed back at having any large gathering at this time, given the COVID-19 crisis.
However, Mr. Trump could not be stopped as he seeks to recapture the excitement of his pre-virus campaign rallies.
The President, in his ninety-minutes speech, left people with the following zingers:
“I stand before you today to declare the silent majority is stronger than ever before.”
“Five months from now, we’re going to defeat sleepy Joe Biden. Boy, does he get a pass from these people.”
“When the chips are down, Biden will always cave to the radical left.”
“It’s a disease, without question, has more names than any disease in history. I can name – Kung flu,”
“We’ve tested now 25 million people. It’s probably 20 million people more than anybody else. Germany’s done a lot. South Korea’s done a lot.”
“So, I said to my people, ‘slow the testing down.”
“The unhinged left-wing mob is trying to vandalize our history, desecrate our monuments, our beautiful monuments, tear down our statues and punish cancel, and persecute anyone who does not conform to their demands for absolute and total control.”
