TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A gathering of supporters and detractors of the President is growing larger with occasional verbal clashes ahead of the President’s rally in Tulsa.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Friday rejected a request to require everyone attending the rally this weekend to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing inside the arena to guard against the spread of the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum rescinded a day-old curfew that was put in place ahead of Saturday night’s rally. Tens of thousands are expected to attend the rally or hang out outside of the arena.
