President Donald Trump threatened protesters who plan to show up to his campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma by commanding federal and local law enforcement to use force.

The President said in a tweet, “Any protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters or lowlifes who are going to Oklahoma please understand, you will not be treated like you have been in New York, Seattle, or Minneapolis. It will be a much different scene!”Also Read–Milley Admits Mistake for Involvement in Trump Church Photo Op

Survey results show 64 percent of Americans disagree with President Trump’s handling of the crisis which started with the killing of George Floyd. Floyd was an African American killed by a white police officer over a supposed $20 counterfeit bill.

Furthermore, the President’s tweet came after Oklahoma’s governor declared the Tulsa rally to be “safe”.  

“it’s just going to be amazing, okay?” said Kevin Stitt, a Republican. “Oklahoma is ready for your visit. It’s going to be safe. And we’re really, really excited.”

Sources believe the tweet was intended to gin up interest in the rally. For over a week, the President and his team have been boasting about the number of people, 800,000 to 1 million ticket requests, to attend the rally. 

“It’s going to be a hell of a night,” President Trump stated earlier this week in an interview.
