In the hours leading up to the start of his campaign rally in Tulsa, the Trump campaign ordered staffers to removed thousands of ‘Do Not Sit Here, Please’ stickers on the seats in the BOK arena, The Washington Post reports. The stickers were intended to establish social distancing between rallygoers.
A senior White House official told the Post, neither Trump nor the White House asked that the stickers be removed.
And, Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh, did not address the issue in his statement to CNN. He chose instead to focus on the health precautions that were taken by the campaign.
“The rally was in full compliance with local requirements. In addition, every rally attendee received a temperature check prior to admission, was given a face mask, and provided ample access to hand sanitizer,” he said.
