Earlier this week, President Trump announced that they would be resuming his campaign rallies on June 19th, starting with his kickoff rally in Tulsa, OK.
The left immediately attacked him, accusing him of intentionally hosting his first rally on the June 19th or “Juneteenth” holiday, which celebrates the ending of slavery in the U.S.
Only moments ago, President Trump made the announcement, explaining his decision in a series of tweets:
We had previously scheduled our #MAGA Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for June 19th – a big deal. Unfortunately, however, this would fall on the Juneteenth Holiday. 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. I have therefore decided to move our rally to Saturday, June 20th, in order to honor their requests…
He added: We have already had ticket requests in excess of 200,000 people. I look forward to seeing everyone in Oklahoma!
The pathetic AP White House reporter Jonathan Lemire tweeted about President Trump’s announcement that he was moving the date of the first rally to June 20th. Instead of giving him credit for his decision, the writer for the far-left propaganda AP accused him of blinking, adding that it “happens very, very rarely.”
Lemire hilariously added that the AP will be “reupping” their story that “the campaign knew in advance that scheduling his comeback rally on Juneteenth would cause blowback—but they were caught off guard by the intensity.”
Trump blinks. Which happens very, very rarely.

If Lemire was new to this game, his ridiculous statement might make sense, but given that he’s been part of the Molotov cocktail throwing media, whose been lying and attacking President Trump for almost four years, he must know it’s highly unlikely their insults had anything whatsoever to do with his decision to change the date of the first post-Wuhan coronavirus campaign rally.
