In a statement, Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, said that Biden, who has had fewer campaign events, does a trick to avoid a possible embarrassment to the public.

"Obviously, this is a tactic that helps him avoid mistakes and embarrassing, lost thoughts, while preventing the press corps from asking him questions personally," he said.

Trump's attack comes just 24 hours before he will hold a widely mocked rally tomorrow in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The rally remains an issue for many critics, particularly the Tulsa Health Department crowded the President, canceling the event altogether, citing fears that it would trigger an increase in coronavirus infections in the state.

The city of Tulsa announced a curfew last night, which will also apply on Friday and Saturday in the area where the President's rally is taking place.

"This is an unprecedented event for the city of Tulsa and has hundreds of moving parts. We ask everyone for help to make this a safe event for all citizens," the city's police department tweeted.

The President issued a threat today to anyone who wants to protest the event.

"All protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters, or lowlifes who go to Oklahoma please understand that you are not being treated like you were in New York, Seattle, or Minneapolis," he wrote on Twitter. "It will be a completely different scene!"

The president's tweet was an indication of violent clashes between demonstrators and police officials across the country when thousands took to the streets to protest racial injustice and police brutality. Police officers were caught on camera when they brutalized demonstrators and intensified a national conversation about ineffective, often dangerous, police practices that disproportionately affect blacks and other black people.
