UNITED STATES—An anti-impeachment rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma was interrupted by the appearance of members from Antifa on Thursday, October 17. Women for America first started a campaign to show support for President Donald Trump to take place at the nation’s capital.
The rally was held at Veteran’s Park and opened with prayer and followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jarrin Jackson, a Westpoint graduate, combat veteran and the Master of Ceremonies at the rally, gave a brief description of what transpired with Antifa protesters.
According to Jackson, members of Antifa attempted to disconnect their sound. The media was there, but Jackson said they were mainly covering the members of Antifa. Local authorities showed up to keep things under control. Jackson indicated at the beginning of the video there were 15-20 Antifa members in attendance. At the time of this video, there were only a few still there.
On Jackson’s Facebook page, he posted additional footage discussing the marches and rallies and the support for President Trump.

One of the Moderators for the March for Trump Facebook page noted that 700 people marched in Washington D.C. They added that another 300 people marched on the nation’s capital grounds at the start of the rally.
More were expected, but were delayed or unable to attend due to confusion with bus transportation, and their tickets were refunded.
