Dozens of cars drove in caravan style around Tulsa, sporting Trump 2020 flags and signs.

Bob Jack, Tulsa Co. Republican Party Chairman, led several vehicles throughout Tulsa in support of President Trump. Jack told 2 Works for You around 50 cars met at the Southeast Campus of TCC near 81st and Highway 169 at 10:00 a.m.

“We’re praying that the president gets back to normal pretty quick here," Jack said.

The group planned a 40-mile trek around Tulsa around two weeks ago; the most recent news of President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis made their ride that much more impactful.

“I jumped up on top of our trailer and had a bullhorn and asked people to pray with me. It was kind of a special moment, because we’ve got different circumstances that we’re not used to. Our president is ill right now and serious ill and we need to pray for him and I think the good lord will heal him," Jack said.

Ivy Griffey plans on voting for former Vice-President Joe Biden, but said, “while I may disagree with him politically I don’t think it serves anyone for him or his family to be suffering.”

Griffey isn't the only one to extend her hand across party lines to show support for the president.

While Rachel Clousing admits she doesn't care for the President and his supporters, she told us, "that’s someone’s father. That’s someone’s grandfather. I wouldn’t want anyone wishing illness on my father or my grandfather, you know."

Many people may be divided on party lines but several that participated in the caravan agree that this is a time to differences aside and come together.

The group wishes President Trump the quickest recovery possible and to be able to get back to campaigning safely for re-election.
