At 7 AM on Saturday morning, a “sea of hundreds and hundreds of people” was already forming outside of the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma where President is set to kick off his first rally event since the coronavirus pandemic temporarily shut down much of America.
Tulsa officials are expecting an overwhelming turnout, as over one million people registered for tickets for the rally, where Trump will address his supporters both inside and outside of the stadium for the first time ever.
Aaron Brilbeck of News 9 in Tulsa went to the beginning of the line that was already formed outside of the gates of the BOK center, where his news crew panned across a sea of red.
“It’s getting to be kind of a party atmosphere,” Brilbeck said before showing viewers the “sea of hundreds and hundreds of people waiting to get through this gate.”

This will be the 1st time that POTUS speaks to BOTH crowds in person – inside & outside.
If you come to the rally and don’t get into the BOK Center before it’s full, you can still see the President in person! pic.twitter.com/7hoLFgzvLA
