More Than Four Million Unique Viewers Watch President Trump’s Tulsa ‘MAGA’ Rally
More than four million people across the country and the world watched President Donald Trump’s ‘MAGA’ rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, a considerable audience for the President’s first major political rally in the aftermath of the coronavirus epidemic.
Tim Murtaugh, Trump 2020 communications direction, shared the campaign’s estimate of digital viewing of the rally in a press release. The campaign’s viewing statistics don’t even include audiences that watched the rally on television.
“President Trump’s rally in Tulsa attracted over 4 million unique viewers across all of the campaign’s digital media channels. The live-streamed pre-rally shows drew an audience of more than 2.5 million unique viewers by themselves. These numbers don’t even include television viewers. The news media, which encouraged protestors and bombarded Americans for more than a week with dire warnings against attending a Trump rally, are still unable to prevent President Trump from reaching the people. These numbers represent unmatched enthusiasm behind the President’s re-election and a massive audience that Joe Biden can only dream of.”
Turnout for the rally was over 6,000, a sizable crowd despite stringent liberal media claims that the event was sparsely attended. Turnout would’ve likely been considerably higher if not for the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. President Trump also rescheduled the event from Friday, not wanting to conflict with the African American holiday of Juneteenth, moving the rally to the day before Father’s Day.
Joe Biden is yet to hold a major campaign rally since securing the Democratic nomination.
