The president is headed to Texas in the near future to host a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally.
On Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced President Trump will be holding a rally at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday, February 11, 2019.
According to the campaign this will be the president’s seventh rally in the Lone Star State.
Additionally, Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said the rally will be held less than 1000 feet from the “successful border fence that keeps El Paso safe.” The president himself cited the barrier in his State of the Union address.
“The border city of El Paso, Texas used to have extremely high rates of violent crime, one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation’s most dangerous cities — now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities, simply put, walls work and walls save lives,” stated President Trump.
This will be the president’s first rally in the city since he began his White House bid in 2015.
