President Donald Trump is assailing Democrats over faltering border security negotiations.

For his part, O'Rourke raised an eye-popping $80 million during his 2018 Senate campaign, when he came close to unseating Republican incumbent Sen. In fact, "El Paso's violent crime rate dropped 62 percent from its peak in 1993 to 2007, a year before constriction on the fence began", the resolution states.

The Make America Great Again rally will take place in El Paso, Texas on Monday at the County Coliseum. And they made clear that Trump's long-promised border wall is sure to play an outsized role in the presidential race, as both sides use it to try to rally their supporters and highlight their contrasting approaches.

Jake Tapper didn't mince words on Monday about President Donald Trump false claim that El Paso, Texas, was one of the nation's "most unsafe cities" before a border barrier was constructed in 2008. "It seeks emotionally to connect with us, with voters - to stoke anxiety and paranoia, to win power over "the other" on the basis of lies that vilify people".

She and Trump want to "secure" the southern border (and not the northern border ) because of who it will keep out. As part of the freaky ensemble, she also sported a barbed wire look around her shoulders.

Beto O'Rourke, the former Democratic congressman considering a White House run, and President Donald Trump will hold dueling rallies in El Paso, Texas, on Monday over the U.S. -Mexico border and the president's push for a wall. As Politifact points out, the city's violent crime rate "was significantly lower than the average for all localities of a similar size" for every year between 1985 and 2014.

As of 2014, Federal Bureau of Investigation data show El Paso still had the third lowest violent crime rate among 35 USA cities with a population over 500,000 - just as it did before the fence was built.

The resolution stated that Trump, in his State of the Union address last week, "falsely stated that El Paso was one of the most risky cities in the United States until the construction of border fencing". "I understand our competitor has got a line, too, but a tiny little line".

Their demonstration comes ahead of Trump's first campaign rally of the year.
