TULSA, Okla. -

President Donald Trump's Campaign Team is preparing for their visit to Tulsa this weekend and now Vice President Pence has announced that he will joining the President.

This is his first rally since the COVID-19 Outbreak, and President Trump's Campaign Manager says it's going to be one of their biggest rallies yet.

President Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, says they've now passed 1 million tickets for Saturday's event here at the BOK Center.

He said in the tweet that this is the biggest rally sign up of all time. There was some concern over the date because it fell on June 19th, which coincides with Juneteenth--the day slavery was abolished in the U.S. Many Democratic Lawmakers in the state pushed back against President Trump coming to Tulsa on that day.

In an interview with the New York Times, Senator James Lankford said he talked to local organizers and they said it would be better if the president came on Thursday or Saturday. Lankford said he told the President he thought it would be respectful to change the date.

The president then ultimately decided to hold the rally on Saturday at 7 p.m. and made the announcement in a tweet on Friday.
