Parkland survivor and gun control activist David Hogg has teamed up with USA Latinx, a political group focused on supporting Latinx candidates, to help raise thousands of dollars to place a billboard featuring President Trump’s anti-Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweet on a mobile billboard in Texas.
The GoFundMe page has raised nearly $10,000 in less than 24 hours, surpassing its initial $6,000 fundraising goal.
“President Donald Trump will be campaigning to help Sen. Ted Cruz win his re-election,” the GoFundMe page reads. “A rally is being planned, according to Trump ‘at the biggest stadium in Texas.’ We are planning to display the presidents own words about Cruz from 2016 on a mobile billboard, to remind Texans of the truth.”
The proposed billboard will feature a February 2016 tweet from Trump criticizing Cruz as an “all talk, no action” politician.
“Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them,” Trump’s tweet reads. “He is another all talk, no action pol!”
Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them. He is another all talk, no action pol!

On Friday, Trump tweeted that he would be holding a “major rally” for Cruz next month.
I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!
