FACT CHECK: El Paso Fire Department confirms - Donald Trump lied about his crowd size

El Paso Fire Department just told us that Trump's statement about them allowing 10,000 people inside is incorrect.
Spokesman says coliseum holds 6,500 and that is how many were allowed in building

FACT CHECK: El Paso Fire Department confirms @realDonaldTrump lied about his crowd size -- only 6,500 attended his embarrassing rally.

Meanwhile, estimates say up to 15,000 turned out for Beto.


How many people did Trump say attended?

When his rally got underway, the president said that “69,000 signed up to be here. The arena holds about 8,000."

Trump thanked the fire department for getting 10,000 people in the El Paso County Coliseum, before noting the crowd that gathered outside for his rally.

“Tens of thousands of people are watching the screens outside,” Trump said.

How many people did officials say attended?
However, a fire department spokesman said 6,500 people were inside the venue and denied any special accommodations were made.

3. Wrong

The tweet was on Monday. There is "y" in Monday so of course it was a lie.

4. Yeah. What a shocker.

It's nice that more and more are calling BS on him.

I love how Beto's crowd is more than double the size of Spanky's, and he hasn't even declared that his running. And, this is in "red" Texas!

16. El Paso had already passed a resolution calling for Fat Donnie to quit lying about their city.

And yes, they used the word "lie" in the resolution.

6. Sometimes I wonder. Is Trump really lying?

Or does he have advisors describing the throngs of people outside, clamoring to get in? Because who would risk telling him that the crowd is actually small?

The White House, Mar-a-Lago, must be strange places to work, filled with paranoid toadies.

12. I'm sure he paid 10,0000 people to show up

... however only 6,500 were actually allowed in the coliseum.

The rest of 'em went to Beto's rally and had a better time.

13. Poor confused Donald

He saw pictures of Beto’s rally and thought all those people were in El Paso to see him. SAD!
