Hundreds of thousands of people are eager to see President Donald Trump at his Oklahoma rally regardless of concerns over the CCP Virus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale announced on Sunday, June 14, that the rally has received more than 800,000 ticket requests, representing the largest number of requests for any of his events.
“Just passed 800,000 tickets. Biggest data haul and rally signup of all time by 10x. Saturday is going to be amazing!” Parscale wrote in a tweet late Sunday.

Just one day earlier, Parscale revealed that 300,000 people have requested tickets for the president’s rally in Tulsa which he called “hottest ticket ever,” and the campaign is looking to add a second event in Oklahoma to accommodate the crowd.
A throng of supporters seeks to attend the Trump rally though his campaign requires them to waive its liability if they contract the CCP Virus after the event.
In the registration information released last week, the Trump campaign informed the rallygoers, “By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.”
The disclaimer said that the attendees and their guests “voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19” and must agree not to sue the campaign “for any illness or injury.”
President Trump had originally scheduled the Oklahoma rally for June 19, but then pushed back the rally to June 20 to avoid overlapping with the Juneteenth holiday.
