President Trump’s campaign canceled an outside address to supporters in Tulsa, Oklahoma hours before the rally is to begin.

On Saturday, ahead of the president’s 19,000-seat arena rally in Tulsa, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were supposed to address supporters in an outside overflow crowd.

The address was canceled hours before the rally. Photos posted online show a relatively small crowd in the outside overflow area.

“Protesters interfered with supporters, even blocking access to the metal detectors, which prevented people from entering the rally. Radical protesters, coupled with a relentless onslaught from the media, attempted to frighten off the President’s supporters,” Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said in a statement to the media.
