Trump Goes After ‘Lightweight’ Beto O’Rourke: ‘He Will Never Be Allowed to Turn Texas Into Venezuela!’
President Donald Trump, who used to take to Twitter to trash Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), is now trashing his opponent in the Texas Senate race.
Rep. Beto O’Rourke‘s (D-TX) campaign has received national attention even as the chances he wins are unlikely at this point, and there’s been speculation about whether he’s angling for 2020 (which he denied last night during a CNN town hall).
This afternoon the President tweeted that he’s a “lightweight” and accused him of wanting to “turn Texas into Venezuela”:
Beto O’Rourke is a total lightweight compared to Ted Cruz, and he comes nowhere near representing the values and desires of the people of the Great State of Texas. He will never be allowed to turn Texas into Venezuela!

During that town hall last night, O’Rourke indicated again he would vote to impeach Trump if he was in the Senate.
