The Democrats and the media keep telling us that President Trump is exceedingly unpopular. You couldn’t tell it by the huge crowds he attracts and their determination to see him. Cold weather and rain does not dampen their enthusiasm and people line up days before he is set to speak. If he were a leftist commie, the media would be calling him a rock star, a term they only use for Democrats.
The original venue was a stadium with a capacity of 10,000. They were forced to move it to The Toyota Center, which holds 19,000 but now that looks puny compared to those who want to see the president. So far 78,600 people have requested tickets.
The Texas Tribune reported that the original site that President Trump set up for the rally in Houston is too small so they found a 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.”
According to FOX News –
At least 77,000 people have signed up for President Trump’s Houston rally on Monday to support incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is locked in the Texas Senate battle with Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke.
The Houston Chronicle reported that Houston police will be “fully mobilized” for the rally. Attendees must have tickets to enter and will be admitted in the order that they line up, the report said.
“Keep in mind that once the capacity is met, you won’t get in whether you have a ticket or not,” an officer said.
More than 77,800 people had signed up for the rally by Friday morning, according to The Chronicle. A person familiar with the event told the paper that the Trump campaign was not considering a move to a larger venue.
That number is more than the number to attend Woodstock and they had a whole bevy of rock stars.
