TFG reportedly mocked the idea of rescheduling his Tulsa campaign rally on Juneteenth:

'Accommodate these people? Have you ever heard of such a ridiculous thing?'

President Donald Trump privately mocked the idea of changing the date of his 2020 Tulsa campaign rally because it fell on Juneteenth, according to a forthcoming book by New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin that Insider obtained an advance copy of.

Eager to return to the campaign trail after months-long COVID-19 lockdowns, Trump was discussing his upcoming June 19 rally with his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who were White House senior advisors at the time. They were at Trump's New Jersey Bedminster golf club with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and his wife, Tammy, a week before the rally.

"'Can you imagine,' Trump asked the Murphys, 'changing the day of the rally in Oklahoma to accommodate these people? Have you ever heard of such a ridiculous thing?'" Burns and Martin wrote in their book "This Will Not Pass," which comes out Tuesday.

It had been less than a month since the police killing of George Floyd, and protests against police brutality and systemic racism had been taking place nationwide. Trump, already under criticism over his response to the racial justice protests, had sparked controversy when he announced his major campaign event would take place in Tulsa, the site of one of the worst massacres of African Americans in US history, and on Juneteenth, an annual celebration in the Black community that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.

I'm sure no one is surprised.

3. Republicans remain mystified by their failure to appeal to Black people

An enduring mystery that has defied the finest minds in the Republican party.
