Emancipation Holiday – Trump shifts the date of Oklahoma rally as a Respect. Trump faced severe criticism as he scheduled his first campaign rally on a day known as Freedom Day. It was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city where white mob massacred African Americans. The incident happened almost a century ago and is known as Freedom Day.

Emancipation Holiday – US President Donald Trump shifted his scheduled rally on Oklahoma in view of the Freedom Day celebrated by the African Americans. The rescheduling is considered as an act of respect towards the Holiday.

The day is called “Juneteenth” and it is a holiday. June 20 commemorates the end of US slavery. It was a century back when white mobs massacred the blacks.

There are still ongoing protests in America to fight racism and in protest of the alleged death of George Floyd. Trump faced criticism for scheduling his first campaign rally in Oklahoma on the day African Americans celebrate as Freedom Day.

“Many of my African American friends and supporters have reached out to suggest that we consider changing the date out of respect for this Holiday,” Trump tweeted. “I have therefore decided to move our rally to Saturday, June 20th, in order to honor their requests.”
