President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is going all-in on its preparation for its campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, bringing in musical acts, and flying in supporters and camera crews to showcase the president’s supporters, according to preparations reported by Axios.
Organizers leased a jet to fly in prominent campaign supporters like “Black Voices for Trump” Advisory Board members, according to Axios. Dozens of lawmakers including Oklahoma Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe and James Lankford will also campaign for the president.
The campaign said Wednesday evening over a million people had signed up online to attend the event, and while the rally location, the BOK Center in Tulsa, can only hold 19,000 people, the campaign is arranging overflow capacity, and will be harvesting voter data from all of the registrations.
