Shock as hundreds of Trump fans, without masks, seen waiting 11 hours before president's rally starts

Hundreds of Donald Trump supporters have been seen queueing nearly 12 hours before the president is due to hold rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Footage shared by NBC reported Morgan Radford shows people for as far as the eye can see wearing MAGA hats in anticipation of the president's first rally since the coronavirus pandemic took hold of the world.

According to Radford the footage was taken before 8 am, with the rally not due to start until at least 7pm.

Many were shocked to see the footage and noticed that there was a lack of social distancing and almost not a single face mask insight, which the president would be pleased to see, despite the White House advising that people cover their face.

Trump has been heavily criticised for holding the event in Tulsa, where cases of coronavirus have begun to rise in the last week, with cases beginning to increase to record highs despite Trump claiming that cases are "very low." Local health officials had also advised Trump not to go ahead with the event, which will be hosted in a 40,000 capacity indoor arena.
