TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Supporters of President Donald Trump are lining up outside the Tulsa stadium where the president will hold his first rally in months.

The Trump faithful are ready to welcome him back to the campaign trail despite warnings about the gathering from health officials about the coronavirus.

The crowd gathered Saturday outside metal barriers surrounding the 19,000-seat BOK Center for what is expected to be the biggest indoor event the country has seen since restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 began in March.

Trump also will speak at an outdoor event to be held inside the barriers. Protests also are planned. Officials expect 100,000 people in the downtown area.
