On "Juneteenth," of all days, the day commemorating the end of slavery, Trump wanted to mobilize his supporters to Tulsa. That earned him a shitstorm.

After massive criticism, U.S. President Donald Trump is postponing his first campaign event in more than three months. The rally in Tulsa (Oklahoma) will now take place next Saturday instead of the day before as planned, Trump announced on Twitter. The timing and location for Trump’s rally had come under criticism against the backdrop of protests against racism and police violence in the U.S. following the death of African-American George Floyd.
