President Donald Trump returns to the campaign trail next week with a rally here in Tulsa.

A location has not been announced, but it will be June 19, which is also Juneteenth, a day commemorating the Emancipation Proclamation and one that's significant to a city with a history marred by one of the nation's biggest acts of violence against black Americans.

Trump will follow his Tulsa rally with events in Florida, Arizona and North Carolina.

Trump has said he doesn't want to speak in venues that look empty because of social distancing or to see a crowd of people wearing masks. Oklahoma has one of the nation's lower totals of confirmed COVID-19 cases, but they are currently on the rise.

Trump handily won Oklahoma in 2016. He currently trails Joe Biden in national polls.
