Trump On Beto: ‘He’s Got Very Little Going For Himself’ Except A ‘Great First Name’

President Donald Trump drew attention to Beto O’Rourke’s dueling rally across the street in El Paso Monday night, calling him a “young man with very little going for himself, except he’s got a great first name.”

Trump then, in classic fashion, mocked O’Rourke’s crowd size while inflating his own numbers and said baselessly that the former congressman’s decision to hold the rally “might be the end of his presidential bid.”

O’Rourke has said that he’s nearing a decision on a 2020 run.
