Beto O’Rourke will reportedly protest outside of Pres. Trump’s El Paso rally scheduled for Monday evening.
O’Rourke lost the Texas Senate election race in 2018 to Sen. Ted Cruz and has been showing aspirations to running for the White House in 2020. At least the Dems are making the choices in 2020 indisputably clear: national borders with controlled, merit-based immigration vs no national borders with uncontrolled immigration of unlimited numbers of sick, poor, criminal, and uneducated peasants.
Losing the House was largely based on repeated lies from Dems and Republicans who chose not to fight, hoping Dems would take the seats to manifest their agenda against Pres. Trump.
O’Rourke will no doubt be spouting these talking points outside of the Trump rally and making a huge noise. How big will the response be? I don’t know.
If American politics has turned into a three-ring circus, this city in west Texas will hoist the Big Top on Monday, with President Donald Trump coming to rally for a border wall, Democratic wunderkind Beto O’Rourke leading a protest march and even the Trump Baby blimp putting in an appearance.
The Trump rally at the El Paso County Coliseum will come only four days before the possibility of either another government shutdown or a declaration of national emergency over what the president deems a national security crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
It also follows Trump’s State of the Union comments in which he tried to use El Paso as an example of why the United States needs to construct a wall along the border.
Perched on the U.S.-Mexico border, the city has become the focal point for the contentious issue of immigration and the president’s relentless push for a barrier.
O’Rourke, fresh off an interview with Oprah Winfrey, said he sees Trump’s campaign rally as an opportunity for the city to take control of the narrative.

Dems including O’Rourke campaign on the fear that Republicans would take away their health care, take away protection for pre-existing conditions (which Trump campaigned against in every rally), would take away their social security and wanted to build a 2000 mile long wall, which Trump has never advocated. People on the left heard these things over and over and vote for Dems.
O’Rourke is seemingly being backed by Oprah Winfrey and has a solid following of youth. The longer he stays out of the 2020 Democrat race, the harder he will have to make up ground with the circus forming around him.
