President Trump is gearing up for his first rally of the 2020 campaign season.

The Make America Great Again rally will take place in El Paso, Texas on Monday at the County Coliseum.

In his State of the Union, President Donald Trump said a “powerful barrier” had cut crime rates and turned El Paso, Texas, from one of the nation’s most dangerous cities to one of its safest. But many in El Paso, site of Trump’s rally Monday night, say the city was safe for decades and embodies a cross-border spirit that transcends walls rather than prove they work.

Reports say Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz will be in attendance for the President’s speech.

This will be the seventh rally President Trump has held in Texas, and the first rally he’s ever held in El Paso.

He plans to continue making his case for increased border security, which includes funding for the border wall.

In spite of the President’s appearance, failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke plans on spoiling the fun by holding a protest march outside the venue of the MAGA rally.

He then plans on holding a counter-rally at roughly the same time as when the President takes the stage.
