Donald Trump speaks in El Paso at eight p.m. CT. Watch right here.
President Donald Trump is predicted to make his case for a border wall in El Paso Monday night at a rally that begins at eight p.m. Central. We’ll embed a feed courtesy of KTSM as soon as the rally begins.
Trump introduced the marketing campaign rally final week. The information got here after the president made a repeatedly debunked declare in his State of the Union handle that El Paso was one of the harmful cities within the nation earlier than a number of miles of border fence had been constructed there. In line with the El Paso Instances, violent crime in El Paso peaked in 1993. By 2006, it had fallen by greater than 30 % — two years earlier than development of the barrier started.
“Because the president continues his struggle to safe our border, there’s no higher place to show that partitions work than in El Paso,” Michael Glassner, the chief working officer of the president’s marketing campaign, stated in an announcement.
Test again later for a reside feed of the president’s rally.
