Trump Caves! President Agrees to Move Rally on Account of Juneteenth

Despite the continued threat of COVID-19, President Donald Trump is getting set to hit the road for the remainder of the 2020 campaign season.

This decision itself was controversial enough, but, predictably, several of the President’s more outspoken critics have banded together to make something more of it.  This time, the never-Trump crowd appears upset at the fact that the President scheduled this return on June 19th, on account of the Juneteenth holiday that is set for that day.

In response, the President made the switcheroo.

“We had previously scheduled our MAGA Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for June 19th – a big deal,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Unfortunately, however, this would fall on the Juneteenth Holiday.”

The president acknowledged that his black supporters spoke to him about conflicts with the date after corporate media and Democrats spoke out about the date of the rally.

“Many of my African American friends and supporters have reached out to suggest that we consider changing the date out of respect for this Holiday, and in observance of this important occasion and all that it represents,” Trump wrote.

The president said that he would move the rally to June 20th in respect of the date.

The site of the rally, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has also been criticized, with some insinuating that the placement of the event was a callback to the 1921 race massacre that occurred in that city.
