Mexican flags were waving freely at the small Beto O’Rourke rally held at the same time President Trump’s massive rally was going on 1/4 mile away in El Paso, Texas.
American Mirror reported that Beto organizers claim there were 7,000 in attendance, but estimates from photos and videos don’t seem to back that up.
President Trump mocked O’Rourke’s attempt to counter his rally. Trump estimated 200-300 people were at the counter-rally.
The President said 35,000 attended his event.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale took to Twitter to break it down, saying Trump had 8,000 inside, and “tens of thousands outside.”

Mexican flags may have even outnumbered the American flags at Beto’s small rally.

We have a winner in @dmarchuleta2!
Not only is the Mexican flag present, it is larger than the American flag, and — in a complete violation of flag etiquette — the Mexican flag is actually higher than the American flag: pic.twitter.com/gvqqZbmLAM
