As President Donald Trump prepares for his first major presidential election rally Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Vice President Mike Pence listed the safety precautions that would be taken against the spread of COVID19 on Fox News Tuesday morning.
Pence, who noted the extraordinary response to the rally by the public and the massive sell out of tickets, said that masks and hand sanitizer will be made available to those attending the rally. He also said that people will receive temperature checks prior to entering the facility.
“We chose the state of Oklahoma for really two reasons, number one because it really is time Ainsely for us to begin this campaign,” said Pence, who was speaking to Fox & Friends’ cohost, Ainsley Earhardt.
“The president wants to be out, he wants to begin this campaign, he wants to be connecting to our supporters and he just indicated that literally over a million people signed up to try and obtain an opportunity to try and attend the rally,” he added.
Pence noted that he has been working with Gov. Kevin Stitt closely on security procedures.
According to the Associated Press, Stitt has asked the campaign to consider a larger, outdoor venue to accommodate the more than 1 million requests for tickets for the event.
In fact, some Trump supporters have already started waiting in line outside the 19,000-seat BOK Center in downtown Tulsa and Stitt told reporters Monday that “we’re excited we’re being recognized as one of the first states to safely and measurably reopen. I’m looking for a potential other venue that maybe we could move it outside. It’s still kind of in the works.”

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.
Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.
Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”
Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”
When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”
“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.
Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
