President Trump to Visit El Paso Monday

White House officials announced Wednesday morning that President Donald Trump will hold an event at the El Paso County Coliseum in El Paso on Monday, February 11th.

The event will be held at the El Paso County Coliseum, located at  4100 East Paisano Drive at 7 pm.  This is the President’s seventh trip to Texas since announcing his bid and winning the White House, but his first to El Paso.

Tickets for the event are available online at the President’s re-election website.

The announcement of the trip comes less than twelve hours after the President made false statements about El Paso during the State of the Union Address, saying that at one time the city was the ‘most dangerous’ in the country until the border wall was built.

Our partners at the Texas Tribune report that President Trump’s Campaign Manager, Michael Glassner said “As the President continues his fight to secure our border, there’s no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso,”   To read the complete article, click here.
