TULSA, Okla. -

The Oklahoma Republican Party has said President Trump's rally next week will be held at Tulsa's BOK Center.

The White House has since confirmed the rally will be June 19 and the president's campaign said it is to start at 8 p.m.

Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement regarding the visit:

"We are honored President Trump accepted our invitation to our great state. The President is making Oklahoma his first campaign stop since March 2, and his visit here confirms Oklahoma is the national example in responsibly and safely reopening. I am excited to welcome President Trump to Tulsa next week and for Oklahomans to show the world how we are a Top 10 state."

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum also said the following:

“My office is working to confirm details about the venue and visit. Tulsans have managed one of the first successful reopenings in the nation, so we can only guess that may be the reason President Trump selected Tulsa as a rally site. The City of Tulsa continues to follow the State of Oklahoma’s OURS plan on COVID-19 response as it relates to events, which encourages the organizer to have enhanced hygiene considerations for attendees.“

President Trump's rally would be taking place during Tulsa's Juneteenth celebration, which is a day that commemorates the end of slavery in the U.S. There are already events set to take place downtown.

Many businesses and organizations will still be practicing CDC guidelines as well since the coronavirus pandemic is still on-going.
