President Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, went smoothly thanks to cooperation with the city of Tulsa and Oklahoma Supreme Court.
A suit was filed demanding that the event require all attendees to wear masks and maintain 6 feet of distance between individuals. Obviously such demands were unrealistic in an enclosed space with thousands of attendees.

The Trump campaign obviously took serious steps to ensure safety was the top priority at the event. In the end, the rally got all the legal approval and support to go forward.
