WHICH WILL BE BIGGER? The crowd attending the Beto O'Rourke event/the gaslighter-in-chief rally? Both in El Paso! Place yer bets?

Maybe we will get SPLIT SCREENS and we can see who is a bigger draw, more people,a  bigger crowd. Remember you cannot believe your eyes. If Beto WINS the gaslighter-in-chief will say it was all fake news. You didn't see what you saw. I don't know whose crowd will be bigger. But the gaslighter-in-chief isn't liked at all in El Paso especially after TELLING BIG FAT LIES ABOUT EL PASO and Beto is a local boy. Place yer bets. Whatcha got ta lose?

    El Paso?   Trump's gotta be kidding.  He insulted them.   They hate him.  Does Trump know something I do not know?   


    Beta will wipe his butt on the day this occurs.  And Beta picked the BEST day ever to ascend upon El Paso.   
    All Trump cares about is if he could market their salsa and make a buck.




    The Republican mayor of El Paso, Texas has pushed back against President Donald Trump’s inaccurate statements regarding border fencing and crime in the city, which is located near the United States’ southern border with Mexico.

    Dee Margo, who has served as El Paso’s mayor since 2017, spoke with conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp on Saturday evening to discuss Trump’s false claims about El Paso and border security. Trump plans to head to El Paso on Monday for a rally to double down on his demand for a border wall, despite Texas lawmakers from both parties criticizing the idea as ineffective.

    During his State of the Union address last Tuesday evening, Trump insisted that El Paso was safer due to “a powerful barrier” it had constructed.


    “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,” the president said. “Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities. Simply put, walls work and walls save lives.”

    Margo and other lawmakers in his state have been pointing out ever since that the president’s assessment doesn’t match up with reality. When asked by Cupp if he’d point this out directly to Trump if he repeats the claim during his trip to Texas,Margo responded with a firm: “absolutely.”

    “I’ve been stating it publicly since last Tuesday night,” the mayor pointed out. “The geography of Texas won’t allow a fence from El Paso to Brownsville even if you wanted to do it,” he added.

    Earlier in the interview, Margo explained that Trump’s assessment that there was a great deal of crime until the fence went up is “not factually correct.”  

    Despite Trump’s statement, El Paso has not been considered one of the nation’s most dangerous cities, with a violent crime rate significantly below the national average for city’s of a similar size. And, according to Politifact, the violent crime rate actually went up after the border barrier was built.

    Margo explained on CNN that his area of Texas along with parts of Mexico are actually “one region.”

    “It’s been this way for almost 400 years,” the mayor said. “We have families on both sides of the border. We have commerce on both sides of the border. And people need to realize that until 1848, El Paso was on the south side of the Rio Grande. We were located there [in Mexico].”
