Donald Trump Books 8000 Seat NRG Arena in Houston for His Ted Cruz Rally Despite Promising to Hold It In ‘the Biggest Stadium’

That’s quite a downgrade.

The announcement that President Donald Trump would be campaigning for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) raised many eyebrows.

The two butted heads repeatedly over the course of the 2016 campaign, with Trump even insinuating that Cruz’s wife was ugly. But to assure that the hatchet was buried ahead of a neck-and-neck election between Cruz and Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke, Trump said he not only intended to stump for Cruz, but to do so in the largest stadium available.

It appears now that plans have changed.

The October 22nd rally will now be held at Houston’s NRG Arena, which seats 8,000 – only 94,000 fewer seats than the biggest stadium in Texas. Representatives for Trump said that there was no bigger stadium available.

Americans can’t stop mocking the downgrade.

Some weren’t buying the Trump team’s explanation.

The reactions have also called attention to the difference in charisma between Senator Cruz and his opponent Beto O’Rourke.
