Texas Governor Greg Abbott addressed a rally of thousands in Conroe on Friday and spoke in praise of former President Donald Trump. 

“Donald J. Trump loves the great state of Texas and Texans love Donald J. Trump,” he said.

“I signed a law that will defund any city that defunds law enforcement in Texas. In Texas we support our law enforcement officers, period,” Abbott said in reference to House Bill 9. He further spoke about the constitutional right to bear arms and highlighted Trump’s support of law enforcement, reported KXAN News.

He also blamed incumbent President Joe Biden for the crisis in Russia, pointing out that US should be sending law enforcement to the border of Texas and Mexico. At this moment, the crowd cheered ‘build a wall’. 

With just about a month to Texas primary election, the state’s elected Republicans, including Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton and Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, gathered at Trump’s ‘Save America’ rally at Montgomery County Fairground. The rally is a leg in Donald Trump Jr.’s “American Freedom Tour.”

“We’re not letting anyone move in here from California or anywhere else and take Texas from us. It’s going to be a cold day in h*ll before the socialists ever take Texas,” Abbott said. 

Trump took the stage after 7.30 pm and endorsed the top Texas Republicans. He ended his speech by saying, “This incredible journey we are on together has only just begun. We are one movement, one people, one family and one nation, under God.”

He urged the people at the rally to come forward and cast their vote in the midterms, “Our country is at stake, and we need a landslide so enormous the radical Democrats cannot steal it no matter what they do,” according to a report in The Sun.
