TRUMP: “Oklahoma is at a very low number. They have done really fantastic work. They have a new, a pretty new, magnificent arena as you probably have heard. We are getting exact numbers out, but we are either close to or over one million people wanting to go. We have a 22,000-seat arena, but I think we're going to also take the convention hall next door, and that's going to hold 40,000. So you have 22,000 plus 40,000, which would mean that we'd have over 900,000 people that won’t be able to go. Hopefully they will be watching. It’s an amazing — nobody has ever heard of numbers like this. I think we're going to have a great time. We're going to talk about our nation, we're going to talk about where we're going, where we've come from.”
The "new, pretty new, magnificent arena" opened 12 years ago. It was built with $178 million in taxpayer money. Perhaps turnout was low because Trump supporters didn't want to go to a magnificent socialist stadium.
