Trump campaign and Tulsa GOP officials say more than 300,000 people have expressed interest in attending the US President's rally in Tulsa.
Since the rally site, the Bank of Oklahoma Center, only holds around 20,000 people, there are currently discussions about whether they will add a second event, the campaign and one official said., reports the CNN.
As for the potential of massive crowds gathering in a city that is in the middle of a coronavirus spike, there are currently no plans to practice social distancing at the rally according to one GOP official.
The campaign has not responded to numerous requests for comment regarding what precautions it will take at the rally because of Covid-19.
The campaign and local organizers plan on the event being held in a packed arena. The GOP official said that there were ongoing discussions among organizers and the campaign as to what precautions, if any, will be put place, including possible temperature scans for supporters before they're allowed inside the arena.
He also said that a temperature check is consistent with what many businesses in the state are doing as they reopen. With the caveat that the plans are not finalized, the official added that as of now masks would be optional, and noted that the President himself doesn't like wearing a mask and it's up to individuals to decide.
Senator James Lankford, a Republican from Oklahoma, said he was planning on attending the rally. When Jake asked if he was going to wear a mask, he responded that he had not decided yet.
