Due to "massive and historic" ticket sales, President Donald Trump has relocated his Texas rally in support of Sen. Ted Cruz's reelection to a larger location.
Response to tickets for the MAGA event in Houston on Monday, October 22, has been HUGE and unheard of! Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale posted on Twitter on Thursday. "Since this rally will be huge, we're relocating to @ToyotaCenter. I want to make sure that everyone attending is aware of the new location!
Since then, the president has objected to media stories that accuse him of exaggerating crowd sizes after complaints over the comparatively tiny audience size for his inauguration.
Late in August, Trump tweeted that he would lead a "huge rally" for Cruz, who is running against El Paso-based Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke, in "the biggest stadium in Texas." As you are aware, he wrote, "Ted has my wholehearted Endorsement. He is weak on the Second Amendment, crime, borders, the military, and veterans, which is a disaster for Texas.
According to its website, the Trump campaign initially selected Houston's NRG Arena, which has a capacity of 8,000, then quickly switched venues on Thursday to the Toyota Center, which has a capacity of 19,000 people.
Kyle Field at Texas A&M University, which has a capacity of 102,995, is the largest stadium in Texas and the fourth-largest in the country.
