Trump mocks O’Rourke in Texas amid dueling rallies over wall

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — President Donald Trump went to Texas to push his immigration policies but turned first to mocking Beto O’Rourke, the former Democratic congressman from Texas now mulling a presidential run, as the two held dueling rallies in El Paso on Monday evening. In a case of pointed political counterprogramming, O’Rourke held an evening march against the wall with dozens of local civic, human rights and Hispanic groups, followed by a protest rally attended by thousands on a baseball field across street from the arena where Trump was holding a rally to make his case for the border wall.
