Trump comes to Tulsa. Is the Empire striking back?

All roads lead to Tulsa...2020 is an election year but with the Coronavirus still in bloom President Trump has been notably absent from the campaign trail, Joe Biden has turned his basement into a political Wayne's World, and the politics of the street has belonged to the Black Lives Matter movement. That log jam began to break on Saturday, July 20, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For the first time this year, protesters would share the visual spotlight with Trump supporters. While the president's turnout was much smaller than Trump hoped for and predicted, it did signal that the president was moving pieces back into the game.Take a look at how it shook out, both inside and outside the BOK Center.
