In Texas, Trump speech takes far-right turn

President Donald Trump set aside his differences with Texas Sen. During the campaign, Trump nicknamed Cruz "Lyin' Ted" and mocked the appearance of his wife Heidi.

The Trump campaign said that 100,000 people had expressed interest in the free tickets for the event. "But actually if you remember in the beginning it was a lovefest.then it got nasty".

Monday was the first day of early voting in Texas.

- nadinevandervelde (@nadinevdVelde) October 23, 2018Okay folks I am still stuck on Trump saying out loud at a rally tonight that he is a nationalist.

The president acknowledged his rocky relationship with Cruz when they were fierce competitors in the 2016 GOP presidential primary. No, President Trump. Globalist means you understand that our fate is entwined with the fates of other countries and that in fact a rising tide lifts all boats. "He's Beautiful Ted", Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for the rally.

"Maybe in the future, but I don't think right now", said Suzanne Asevedo, a greater Houston resident, of a Democrat's chance of holding a statewide office in Texas.

Cruz, speaking before Trump, hailed the president as "a man who has presided over record jobs, record unemployment" and said he looks forward to hitting the campaign trail for his reelection campaign. Ted's going to get up and going to make a great speech.

After Cruz introduced him, Trump took his time making his way down the aisle, stopping every few steps to wave and shake hands with supporters, who greeted him with deafening cheers while Cruz looked on and applauded.

"Ted's opponent in this race is a stone cold phony named Robert Francis O'Rourke, sometimes called Beto".

The president said there "are some very bad people" in the caravan heading to the US border, which now numbers as many as 10,000. This will be the election of the caravan, Kavanaugh, law and order, tax cuts, and common sense.

"I think it'll be an awesome experience even out here and I think it's awesome just being around people who share the same values as you", said Kiara Owens, a home-schooled teen from Fort Worth.

Trump went on to say he was proud to hear his approval in foreign countries was low, as he believes it indicates his foreign policy is working.

In "less than two years. we have a record number of Supreme Court judges", said Trump, as if the vacancies he had an opportunity to fill were some sort of testimony to his greatness rather than a mere temporal quirk.
