EL PASO, Texas (Reuters) – Beto O’Rourke, the former Democratic congressman considering a White House run, blasted President Donald Trump’s fight for a border wall on Monday as the two held dueling rallies in El Paso, Texas.
O’Rourke, who narrowly lost a 2018 bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Texas, accused Trump of stoking “false fear” about immigrants and telling “lies” about his hometown El Paso, which Trump said was a dangerous place before it had a border fence.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Here is one of the safest cities in the United States of America, safe not because of walls but in spite of walls,” O’Rourke told a crowd of several thousand supporters, many waving “Beto 2020” signs and wearing “Immigrants Make America Great” baseball caps.
