In Texas, Trump speech takes far-right turn

  • U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz debates U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke at the KENS 5 studios

"I think the Democrats had something to do with it". In the caravan, you have some very bad people.

Taking the stage to introduce Trump, Cruz said: "In 2020, Donald Trump will be overwhelming reelected as President of the United States".

"I'm real excited", said Rhett Caraway, also of Fort Worth.

"I will only vote to confirm a Supreme Court Justice who believes in a women's right to make her own decisions about her body", O'Rourke proclaimed at their last debate.

- nadinevandervelde (@nadinevdVelde) October 23, 2018Okay folks I am still stuck on Trump saying out loud at a rally tonight that he is a nationalist. (Horse-race midterms types would point out here that this makes little strategic sense, as Cruz is projected to win tidily and the president's time might be better spent throwing a bone to less safe GOP candidates.) But Cruz seemed nearly an afterthought throughout.

'And by the way, when I bring up to the heads of countries like Japan, prime minister Abe, a friend of mine, I bring it up, he looks at me and he goes, I understand, ' Trump said, retelling a story he's used to back up his position on the issue in the past. I mean, imagine if your neighbor insulted your wife's face, and then you had to ask him to loan you a weed whacker.

Senator Ted Cruz has been locked in a close battle against his Democrat challenger, Congressman Beto O'Rourke of El Paso, who has outraised him about three to one, and who's within single digits.

"Of course I'm unpopular with foreign nations, because we're not letting them rip us off anymore", he said.

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.

It must really kind of suck to be Ted Cruz right now.

"The polls are pretty close right now, but I'm not too anxious about it because he's had a lot of support in Texas", said supporter Judah Payer.

- Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) October 23, 2018Last night Trump called himself a nationalist, which is sure to provoke the media left to once again accuse him of fascism.

"You know, they have a word".

Cruz once called Trump a "serial philanderer" and "sniveling coward".

I had a almost front-row view of the action-something that felt especially surreal when Trump turned the crowd's attention to the scourge of the "Fake News Media". I am a nationalist. Restore the rule of corrupt, power-hungry globalists, ' he claimed. And, you know what?
