MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki Intensely Analyzes Texas Stadiums Trump Can Hold His Rally For Ted Cruz
On Friday night, MSNBC host Steve Kornacki gave a thorough breakdown of President Donald Trump‘s options for his upcoming rally for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Earlier on Twitter, the president officially announced his endorsement for his former presidential rival.
I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!

“I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October,” Trump tweeted. “I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find.”
Well, Kornacki offered to help narrow the search.
Filling in for Brian Williams, Kornacki stood beside a giant touch board he mostly uses to analyze election maps, and ran through the “biggest stadiums” in Texas.
He began with the biggest stadium, which is Kyle Field at Texas A&M, which has a 102, 512 capacity but has held a crowd of 110, 631 people, warning the president that would require “a lot of bodies.” He pointed out a potential “complication” that the university is affiliated with former President George H.W. Bush, someone who doesn’t exactly get along with the current president.
Kornacki then suggested AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play. That stadium has held a crowd up to 108, 713. He also mentioned Trump’s ally Jerry Jones, the Cowboys owner who sided with the president in the fierce national anthem debate.
But if the president wanted to be technical, Kornacki offered the Texas Motor Speedway, which has held 181,655 people.
However, the MSNBC host estimated that the biggest rally Trump ever held was way back in August 2015 in Mobile, Alabama where he approximately had 20,000-30,000 people.
