Trump's Bogus El Paso Claim

President Trump Preps for El Paso Rally

Some sported "Make America Great Again" hats, and said they were there to show their support for the construction of a wall at the border.

This will be the seventh rally President Trump has held in Texas, and the first rally he's ever held in El Paso. "How bad it that?"

Monday, Trump heads to El Paso, where he won 25.7% of the 2016 vote and enraged everyone in a SOTU speech falsely declaring it a hell-hole of crime - a reality officials say only exists in "Sicario", given they boast one of the lowest crime rates of any big city. But that's not true.

O'Rourke is expected to speak at Chalio Acosta Sports Center around the same time the president is scheduled to take the stage at a rally in support of the wall at the El Paso County Coliseum, which is just a block away.

El Paso is a Texas border city adjacent to Mexico's Ciudad Juarez. But that corresponded with similar declines in violent crime nationwide and included periods when the city's crime rates increased year over year, despite new fencing and walls.

The New York congresswoman replied to the tweet saying, "Why should I be "spirited and warm" for this embarrassment of a #SOTU? ". Actor James Woods posted a meme , showing Ocasio-Cortez sitting in a straitjacket during the State of the Union address.

O'Rourke, who has claimed to oppose open borders, has faced backlash for refusing to clarify where he stood on the migrant caravan that was heading toward the U.S. O'Rourke dodged commenting on the topic despite immigration and border security overwhelmingly being the top issues for voters in Texas during his unsuccessful run to unseat Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018 and maintains an army of small-dollar donors and a large social media following.

"While some try to stoke fear and paranoia, to spread lies and a false narrative about the U.S. -Mexico border and to demand a 2,000-mile wall along it at a time of record safety and security, El Paso will come together for a march and celebration that highlights the truth", he said in a statement ahead of the event. So far, O'Rourke has not made a decision.

El Paso's Republican mayor, Dee Margo, said the city had been safe for years before the wall was built.

"I understand our competitor has a line, too, but it's a tiny little line", Trump said.

Another Texan who has already declared his candidacy for president is also criticizing Trump's rally in El Paso.
