A gathering of supporters of President Donald Trump grew larger Friday and occasionally clashed with opponents of the president outside a 19,000-seat arena in the city’s downtown where he plans to speak this weekend.
Trump’s scheduled rally Saturday night in a city with a long history of racial tension will be held just blocks from the site of one of the worst racial massacres in U.S. history and comes as the number of coronavirus cases in the state and the city have spiked in recent days.
The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Friday rejected a request to require everyone attending Trump’s rally to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing inside the arena to guard against the spread of the coronavirus.
