The Trump campaign removed social distance stickers before the Tulsa rally



The Trump campaign removed social distance stickers before the Tulsa rally

As part of the BOK Center’s safety plan for the June 20 rally, arena management has bought 12,000 sit-down stickers with the intention of alienating people by leaving open seats among participants, according to the Post.

Then on the day of the rally, when event staff had placed stickers on almost every seat in the 19,000-seat arena, Trump’s campaign told the event management to stop and then start removing stickers, according to someone familiar with the event who spoke to the Washington Post on condition of anonymity to discuss internal problems.

Tim Murtaugh, director of Trump’s campaign communications, did not discuss the sticker removal incident but instead touted health prevention measures taken for the event in a statement to CNN.

“The rally was completely in accordance with local requirements. In addition, each rally participant received a temperature check before entering, was given a mask, and provided sufficient access to hand sanitizer,” Murtaugh said on Saturday.

Stickers were removed in the arena before the event, according to pool reporters, who noticed that stickers that had appeared on chairs many hours earlier almost all disappeared on Saturday afternoons. The sticker was removed before the public was allowed into the arena, according to swimming pool reports.

Meanwhile, in one video clip obtained by the Post, two men, one in a suit and one wearing a badge and face mask, can be seen pulling a sticker from a chair in the arena. The identity of the men is unclear.

After most of the stickers were put on, a member of the Trump campaign broadcast radio in the war room where arena management monitored the preparations and told them to stop, according to someone familiar with the event speaking to the Post. Event staff were told to continue applying stickers. Then, the campaign began to attract them, the person said.

When Trump stepped on stage in the arena, participants were seen not following social distance guidelines, instead being grouped together without empty seats between one another. There are no stickers that can be seen on the chair.

In the end, less than 6,200 people attended the rally intended to signal Trump’s return to the campaign trail. The low attendance was blamed for the strong reaction from the media and “radical protesters” about mobilizing such a large mass in the middle of a pandemic.

A group of local lawyers, in the days leading up to the rally, demanded to stop the event unless the organizer agreed to take steps to comply with the government’s own social distance recommendation to limit the spread of the corona virus.

Lawyers in their lawsuit noted that Tulsa’s health department statistics showed that Monday ahead of the planned rally on Saturday showed the highest number of new corona virus cases.

A judge finally refused the emergency request.

Neither Trump nor the White House asked to remove the sticker, a senior White House official told the Washington Post.

Since the June 20 rally, at least eight staff have been positive and several high-ranking campaign officials decided to quarantine a week after instead of going to the office, two sources who were aware of the situation told CNN.

CNN DJs Judd and Ryan Nobles contributed to this story.

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



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.
