OVER 8,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED BETO O’ROURKE’S RALLY IN EL PASO LAST NIGHT
How pathetic and how weak of Donald Trump to pretend last he had 35,000 people at his rally while Beto O’Rourke and ‘about 300.’ The truth is that they both had about 9,000 each. That is such a pathetic and obvious lie and just illustrates Trump’s weakness.
The Hill reports that ‘President Trump on Monday boasted that his El Paso campaign rally drew far more people than the one former Rep. Beto O-Rourke (D-Texas) headlined across town, claiming that he had more than “35,000 people” attending.
“A young man who’s got very little going for himself except he’s got a great first name. He challenged us. We have say 35,000 people tonight, and he has, say, 200 people, 300 people,” Trump said while speaking at at a campaign rally in El Paso. “Not too good. In fact what I would do, that may be the end of his presidential bid.”
The El Paso County Coliseum seats about 11,000 people, according to NBC News. Trump said earlier in the evening that about 10,000 people were inside and thousands more watching on screens outside.
Trump also later claimed that the media would not acknowledge the disparity between the two rallies.’
