Immediately following President Trump’s first campaign rally in months, the president thanked the enthusiastic supporters who showed up, bracing the coronavirus, and attending the event.
“Thank you, Oklahoma,” Trump said, as BizPac Review reports. “We begin our campaign and I just want to thank all of you, you are warriors. I’ve been watching the fake news for weeks now, and everything is negative. Don’t go, don’t come, don’t do anything.”

“Today it was like, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Trump added. “You are warriors, thank you. We had some very bad people outside. We had some very bad people outside, they were doing bad things. But I really do, I appreciate it. We have just a tremendous group of people in Oklahoma.”
The president’s comments inside the arena about the greatness of the Oklahoma people were apparent by the support some of the attendees showed in a video that was widely shared online.
The Trump rally attendees were not looting.
They were not rioting.
They were not breaking things.
In fact, the pro-Trump crowd had an amazing moment where they cheered law enforcement officials on their way inside the arena.
