It's looking like a Tulsa bust with small indoor crowd, outdoor Trump event canceled

Updates as we move forward with a live blog below. The crowd looks to be about half the size expected.

The outdoor event was canceled because of minimal attendance. 

A statement on the city’s website says the U.S. Secret Service had asked for the curfew near the BOK Center where Trump is to hold the rally Saturday night, then on Friday asked that the curfew be lifted. Bynum issued the curfew prohibiting people in the area starting at 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday and ending at 6 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and from the end of the rally on Saturday until 6 a.m. Sunday, including those who had camped there. “I enacted a curfew at the request of Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin, following consultation with the United States Secret Service based on intelligence they had received,” Bynum said in the statement. “Today, we were told the curfew is no longer necessary so I am rescinding it.” Trump tweeted earlier Friday that he had spoken to Bynum who told him there would be no curfew, after all. Tulsa Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg said campers were removed from the curfew zone Thursday night with no trouble and no arrests. By —  Associated Press www.pbs.org/…

Massive bullet-proof wall gets taken down as the media is being blamed. The Superpreader-Trump bragged about a million tickets, even as it seems now that many may have simply requested tickets with no intention of showing up. That would have not crowded out attendees, even as it now seems that the actual pandemic fear may have even scared off loyal Trumpists.

Six members of the Trump advance team have tested positive for COVID-19.

The takeaway is that Trump deliberately slowed down COVID-19 testing.
