Donald Trump gained some brownie points in Texas this weekend.
Trump held a rally near the southern border at South Texas International Airport.
In addition to the rally, Trump served up some holiday meals to local law enforcement and managed to pick up a big endorsement as well.
Big Day for Trump
During the rally, Trump accused Biden of creating the “most unsecure border in the history, I believe, really, of the world.”
Trump picked the right spot to push his border agenda, only about 20 miles from the border itself.
Trump’s campaign added, “Stopping the invasion at our southern border is an urgent national security necessity and one of President Trump’s top priorities. For that reason, he has laid out – in his own speeches and Agenda 47 platform – by far the most detailed program for securing the border, stopping illegal immigration, and removing those who should never have been allowed into our country in the first place.”
Trump also managed to serve up some grub to local law enforcement as well as National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers…

Trump got one more big boost from the trip, which was the endorsement of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Abbott posted his endorsement on X, writing, “We need a president who is going to secure the border.
“We need a president who is going to restore law and order in the United States of America, not letting these criminals run ransack over the stores that you see images of almost nightly.
“We need a president who is going to restore world peace, as opposed to this outbreak of warfare under Joe Biden. We need Donald J. Trump back as our President of the United States of America.
“I'm here to officially proclaim my endorsement for Donald J. Trump to be President of the United States of America again!”
Texas has been slowly but surely trending blue since 2016, so it will be interesting to see how the election pans out in the 2024 race.
Currently, Trump is easily winning the primary race in Texas, but his overall lead in the general election is only 45-37, a far cry from the 46-28 spread that Trump had in 2016 against Hillary Clinton.
