Trump expected a raucous return for his first electoral rally in three months. He arrived in Tulsa, where only 6,200 supporters showed up, against the 19,000 the arena could hold: a decrease of 68%. A disappointing number, for a president who boasted about ''never having an empty seat'' at a rally throughout his 2016 campaign. What happened? Commentators have blamed a recent local coronavirus outbreak, Trump's abrupt decrease in popularity over the last few months and... TikTok! Many users posted videos about booking a ticket with no intention of going – leaving Trump's team to think that attendance would be much larger than it actually was.
