NBC News reports:
President Donald Trump and Beto O’Rourke are speaking less than half a mile — but worlds apart — from each other on Monday night. And hours before the dueling El Paso events, the president started in on his potential 2020 challenger.
“We have a line that is very long already, I’m mean you see what’s going on,” Trump told reporters, referring to people waiting to get into his “Make America Great Again” campaign rally. “And I understand our competitor’s got a line too, but it’s a tiny little line. Of course (the media) make it sound like they have more people than we do. That’s not going to happen.”
Less than a half mile away from Trump, O’Rourke, the former El Paso congressman and possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, will headline the “March for Truth: Stop the Wall, Stop the Lies.” The march will end in a rally where O’Rourke said residents will “celebrate our community” and “tell the true story about the border.”
