During his visit to the hospital that treat shooting victims in El Paso, Texas, President Donald Trump took the opportunity to boast about the crowd size at a previous rally. 

Trump praised the hospital’s medical staff for their work in response to the shooting. He followed up, “I was here three months ago and we made a speech…That place was packed.”

A local news station tweeted a video of trump speaking to the staff.

Trump continued by taking a shot at Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) saying that he draws large crowds to stadiums, but the Texas representative barely fills parking lots.
