O'Rourke blasts Trump in rival border rally

O'Rourke blasts Trump in rival border rallyO’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. Trump is in El Paso to argue for a wall he says can protect Americans from violent criminals, drugs and a “tremendous onslaught” of migrant caravans. A sea of Trump supporters in red caps waited for the arrival of the president at the El Paso County Coliseum under giant “Finish the Wall banners.” The rally was due to be his first direct clash with a potential 2020 rival, albeit on separate stages in venues about 200 yards apart.
