President Trump departed Joint Base Andrews Monday afternoon and headed to El Paso, Texas for a MAGA rally. Hundreds of supporters arrived 24 hours early, with 75,000 requested tickets in an 8,000 seat arena!
The President will give a speech about border security just 1,000 feet from the successful border fence in El Paso.
Will be heading to El Paso very soon. Big speech on Border Security and much else tonight. Tremendous crowd! See you later!
