What was the real reason that Trump went to El Paso? [View all]

Was it just a campaign event? Or were there other under-lying reasons?

It is true that one of his strongest opponents, Beto O'Rourke, was leading a march just a mile away from the Trump hatefest. But, is that why Trump came to El Paso?

No doubt, he wanted his crowd to be larger than Beto's but that did not materialize.

Also, he wanted to preach about the virtue of "walls".

But, above all that, he wanted to send his base a message. The Mueller investigation is a big "hoax". Senator Richard Burr said they had found no "collusion", he told the crowd.

From a distance, it appeared that he was fearful of a shoe that was about to drop? He is anticipating some bad news from the Mueller investigation, or perhaps, the SDNY investigation led by Andrew Weissmann?

He is totally preoccupied with continuing his cover-up of his Russia connections. But, from this perspective, it looks like a big rock is about to be turned over? Who knows what will be under it?
