Air Force One is a cruise missile right now. President Donald J. Trump is crisscrossing the country in support of Republican candidates who are committed to Keeping American Great.
In Houston, Texas over a hundred thousand people have lined up a day in advance of President Trump’s rally for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
From the Washington Examiner:
Supporters are lining up for President Trump’s big rally in Texas, one whole day before the event will take place.
With Trump’s 2020 campaign boasting “100,000+” people being interested in attending, lines of people outside the venue Sunday evening, shown spanning multiple blocks in photos tweeted by CNN’s Betsy Klein, further indicate high enthusiasm for the event.
The people at the front of the line had reportedly been there since 10 a.m. local time.

But momentum appears to be building for Cruz, who still has an edge in polling.
On Thursday, Trump’s campaign said it moved the Cruz rally to a bigger venue in Texas after citing an “unprecedented” demand for tickets. Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted the venue change, saying the response for tickets to Monday’s rally in Houston has been “HUGE and unprecedented.”
The Toyota Center, which can seat up to 19,000 people for concerts, is far bigger than the previous venue, NRG Arena, which holds about 8,000 people.
In a tweet, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer commented on Klein’s photos, saying to expect a “massive crowd” at the rally.
