Trump on Monday did not voice any second thoughts about labeling Cruz the son of a presidential killer, telling reporters, "I don't regret anything". You know what I am?
"Gotta vote for Ted Cruz", Trump told the crowd. I can not imagine that, ' he said of claims that the term is a racist dog-whistle. I'm knocking out some of the worst deals I've ever seen. "He's not", Trump said, adding that O'Rourke "got beaten badly" in his debates against Cruz.
On Monday night, Trump called the caravan an "assault on our country" and suggested, without citing evidence, that "Democrats had something to do with it".
The pre-Trump speakers who mentioned Cruz did so only in the most general terms (i.e., vote for Cruz if you don't want Texas and/or America to become a terrible socialist dystopia; vote for Cruz if you want "jobs, not mobs").
In remarks before he left Washington for Texas, Trump said he had come up with a new nickname for Cruz: "He's not Lyin' Ted anymore". No, President Trump. Globalist means you understand that our fate is entwined with the fates of other countries and that in fact a rising tide lifts all boats.
Senator Ted Cruz has been locked in a close battle against his Democrat challenger, Congressman Beto O'Rourke of El Paso, who has outraised him about three to one, and who's within single digits. "I think he's a highly overrated guy".
"Due to unprecedented demand for tickets, we continued to push for and negotiate terms for the larger capacity provided to us at the Toyota Center", the spokesman said.
But they started rebuilding in the closing days of the campaign and have worked together since Trump took the White House.
Cruz also had praise for the president as he took the stage before Trump, saying he looked forward to returning the favor on the trail for Trump's re-election campaign in 2020.
In another interesting moment making waves on social media, Trump proudly declared himself to be a "nationalist". Over the weekend, however, an unknown person made fraudulent copies of the guides changing the text of the issues and mixed them into piles passed out at multiple churches in Texas. "And I say, 'Really?' We're not supposed to use that word".
He then encouraged the crowd to "use that word, ' regardless of its negative connotations, while he railed against 'globalists" that never put America first. And, you know what?
