UPDATE: Donald Trump’s Houston Rally with Ted Cruz Moved to Bigger Venue

President Donald Trump’s rally Monday in Houston with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has been moved to a bigger venue.

Originally set to take place at the NRG Arena, the event will now be held at the Toyota Center, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced in a tweet Thursday afternoon, describing the demand for tickets as “HUGE and unprecedented.” The Toyota Center can hold about twice as many people as NRG Arena — roughly 10,000 versus 19,000.

Trump set expectations high set two months ago, when he announced he would come to Texas in October to hold a rally with Cruz at the “biggest stadium we can find.” Neither NRG Arena nor the Toyota Center are among the state’s largest venues.

The rally is set to begin at 6:30 p.m., and is set to also feature remarks from Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

  1. #MAGA = MUELLER AIN'T GOING AWAY!

    Hate rallies are permitted in Texas, so buy your tickets if you are going to attend donald trump’s Hate Rally! It’s not about Ted Cruz, he’s only a CHUMP to Trump. And if you attend trump’s hate Rally! it might even come with PAY! WITH PAY?? YES WITH PAY! It’s way to expensive for Donald Trump to bus his deplorables all the way from Billings Montana or wherever his last hate rally was held in. So he might cut a deal with the least educated deplorable Houstonians. At least he doesn’t have to pay Ted Cruz to show up to Trump’s hate Rally and all about Trump, BRAGGING, SCREAMING AND BOASTING!. But the number one topic coming out from his mouth is LYING! So now we have Pathological Liar Donald Trump! and Lying Ted Cruz. It be cool if there was a contest between the two to see who could lie the most! My take is that it would be a tie.
    Pick one or you can pick the two liars! either way you LOSE!

  2. Speaking of chumps, how are you doing, Alberto?
