Wahlkampf in Tulsa – Trump stichelt gegen Deutschland

Der US-Präsident sagte, Deutschland schulde der Nato wegen unzureichender Verteidigungsausgaben in den vergangenen 25 Jahren in Wahrheit „eine Billion Dollar“.

Trump übte in dem Zusammenhang erneut Kritik an der geplanten Ostsee-Pipeline Nord-Stream 2, die Gas von Russland nach Deutschland bringen soll. „Wir sollen Deutschland vor Russland beschützen“, sagte Trump unter Applaus.

Sick staff and empty seats: How Trump’s triumphant return to the campaign trail went from bad to worse

Hours later, the President was informed six campaign staffers in Tulsa had tested positive for coronavirus ahead of his scheduled arrival — an unfortunate reminder of an ongoing pandemic Trump’s critics say he is ignoring.

With curfew lifted, festival atmosphere reigns in downtown Tulsa near site of Saturday’s Trump campaign rally

Thousands of adoring fans and some number of not-so-adoring opponents are expected to greet President Donald Trump on Saturday night when he becomes the first U.S. chief executive in more than 25 years to visit Tulsa.

Trump followers began gathering in the city almost as soon as the 7 p.m. rally at the BOK Center was announced last week. In a larger sense, many have been waiting for months, ever since the COVID-19 epidemic put a stop to most live campaign activities.

Oklahoma Supreme Court denies appeal to enforce social distancing at Trump rally

The Oklahoma Supreme Court denied a legal request to require that social distancing be enforced at President Trump’s campaign rally on Saturday, according to media reports Friday.

The decision comes in response to a lawsuit brought by two attorneys on behalf of city residents, businesses and immunocompromised individuals who claimed that the rally would put the community at increased risk of coronavirus infection.
