Trump ‘furious’ and Ivanka ‘p***ed’ after only 6,000 people show up to campaign rally billed as one-million strong

Donald Trump was reportedly “furious” after his campaign manager promised nearly a million people would show up to the president’s first major rally since the coronavirus outbreak, to then see just 6,200 people in attendance at the Saturday event.

The president was upset before the rally even began, according to NBC News, as reports circulated early on Saturday that said six of his campaign staffers who were organising the event tested positive for Covid-19.

Mr Trump did not understand how that information had leaked to the press just before he was set to take the stage at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a venue with more than 19,000 seats, the news outlet reported.

He wasn’t the only one frustrated by the debacle: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were “pissed” about the poor turnout at the rally after Brad Parscale, the president’s re-election campaign manager, predicted a stronger turnout, according to CNN.
