TikTok users control the Trump campaign during the Tulsa rally

Why Trump was upset before Tulsa rally started
Many of those who requested tickets may have been disturbing the President – in actions that were held mainly through the TikTok social media platform.
Last week, Trump tweeted that “Nearly One Million people requested tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!” and a local official said they hoped 100,000 would appear near the arena. But on Saturday, registered participants did not meet the Tulsa Bank of Oklahoma Center arena, which recognized newcomers based on first-come, first served, and Trump teams canceled plans for the President to speak in “overflow” areas outside the arena.

Coordinated efforts are being made on TikTok in the days leading up to the Trump rally on Saturday, encouraging people to register online for free events and not show up. TikTok is usually considered a platform for teenage dancing and is not, of course, political action.

A Trump campaign official pushed back on the suggestion the post played a role in participation, told CNN, “We have 300 thousand legitimate Republican registrations that voted in the last four elections. That was not [TikTok] children. It was afraid of violent protests. This is clear from the lack of families and children at the general meeting. We usually have thousands of families. “

While TikTok’s efforts seem to involve many teenagers and other young people, Mary Jo Laupp, a 51-year-old grandmother who lives in Fort Dodge, Iowa, seems to have played a central role in encouraging people to go to Trump’s website, register to attend events – and not attending.

“All of us who want to see this 19,000-seat auditorium are barely occupied or completely empty, go order a ticket now and leave it standing alone on the stage,” Laupp be told around 1,000 followers in TikTok.

And then, besides the choreography dance, comedy courage, and jokes on the school grounds, grandma’s encouragement was a challenge. Inspired users start posting videos that show they are also registered for the event. Similar posts on Instagram and Twitter make thousands of likes.

One video, with more than a quarter million views, asks South Korean pop music fans in particular to join the trolling campaign. Music fans, known as K-pop, are a force on social media – they posted more than 6 billion tweets last year alone. And they have a history of taking action for the purpose of social justice.

Earlier this month, K-pop fans gathered around the Black Lives Matter movement, drowning “White Lives Matter” and other anti-Black hashtags.

Laupp, who said he was working on the campaign of the former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg in Iowa last fall, told CNN that he had made an initial appeal when disappointed that the demonstration would initially take place in June, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery. in the United States.

The Trump campaign turned down efforts last week. Erin Perrine, deputy director of communications for Trump’s campaign, told CNN on Tuesday, “Left doing this all the time. They think if they sign up for tickets that will leave seats empty. Absolutely not happen. There are always more ticket requests than seats available at public meetings. All they did was give us access to their contact information. “

On Saturday night, when the picture showed an empty part of the BOK Center, Laupp and young people in TikTok celebrate it. “General Z can’t be stopped,” a young boy write on TikTok.
Democratic Republic of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at Trump campaign manager, Brad Parscale, “You have just been rocked by teenagers in TikTok who have flooded Trump’s campaign by booking fake tickets & tricking you into believing a million people want your white supremacy open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID.”
Steve Schmidt, Republican strategist who managed the 2008 John McCain presidential campaign, tweeted“American teenagers have dealt a major blow to @realDonaldTrump. Throughout America teenagers are ordering tickets to this event. The fools in this campaign are boasting about one million tickets. Lol.”

TikTok, which is owned by a Chinese company, has previously attracted the attention of US lawmakers.

Last year, Sens Chuck Schumer and Tom Cotton urged the US intelligence community to assess the national security risk of TikTok and other Chinese platforms.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
