The rally came at a critical moment for Trump, whose negotiations with the President of Ukraine were the subject of a rapidly developing House Democratic impeachment inquiry summoned by House committees that carried out the investigation.
Republicans have expressed concerns that they could face a historical defeat in Texas in 2020 as more suburban voters resisted the president. Trump only improved the long-standing Republican stronghold and its 38 votes in 2016 by 9 points – after Mitt Romney's 15-point victory in 2012.

"I said to my wife, First Lady, maybe, I have a problem," Trump said. "& # 39; Some of these guys are okay, they were just president of the class. … I preferred to play baseball. But I said, Melania, and I called Ivanka, my children – I said, "I have a problem. Ted Cruz was the national debate – the number one guy in college. He was the number one type of law school. How the hell can I beat a guy who's debating so well? & # 39; But we did it, Ted. Ted was tough – smart as hell and tough.
One shot at Democrats the day after their last presidential debate, Trump said, "In recent debates, you see those people up there, they're not Ted Cruz, believe me.

"They want to impose an extreme agenda," Trump said, referring to the field of Democrats seeking the White House. "They can not stand it and they can not win at the ballot box – they will not win. You will not be able to approach 2020. You know it. "
He continued," They want to break down symbols of faith and drive Christians and believers out of the public square. They want to silence their voices on social media, and they want the government to censor conservative voices, silence them and shut them down – you know that.
However, Democrats have noted both demographic trends and the fact that Cruz won the re-election last year with just over 2 points as proof that the second most populous state could soon be in play.
"I expect President Trump to win Texas this time by 5 percentage points instead of 9 points," said Cal Jillson, a professor of political science at Southern Methodist University to Politico. "There are long-term demographic changes in the state that affect Republican support. The big cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas are already blue. Moreover, his republican coalition has been destabilized by his own actions and behavior. "
