GoFundMe raises almost $10k for Texas billboard of Trump's anti-Cruz tweet

Hogg, along with the liberal activist and social media presence Claude Taylor, contributed to a fundraiser "initiated by Antonio Arellano" of the group USA Latinx, according to a GoFundMe page associated with the fundraiser.

President Trump has pledged to campaign in Texas for the man he once labelled "Lyin' Ted" Cruz in an attempt to stave off a strong Democratic challenger who could help to turn the Senate against the president.

Trump tweeted Friday that he will headline "a major rally" for Cruz in October and is "picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find". Ted Cruz (R) and Rep. Beto O'Rouke (D).

The GoFundMe blew past its original goal of $6,000, with it nearly reaching $10,000.

Woodward book says Trump aide privately called him 'idiot'
Mr Trump makes several attempts to steer conversation toward his foreign policy achievements and economic record as president. One reason McMaster dresses as he does is that he has spent his life serving his country, rather than making money.

"Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them", Trump's tweet reads. "Thank you @POTUS", Hogg tweeted. "He is another all talk, no action pol!"

Hogg survived a Valentine's Day shooting in Parkland, Fla. that left 17 dead.

The feud between the two continued to escalate as the primary season continued, with Trump amplifying a conspiracy theory that Cruz's father was involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Trump has long planned to travel to bolster Republican candidates before November's midterm elections, but he was not expected to spend valuable time in reliably-red Texas for a race that for months looked like a Cruz cakewalk. Cruz has labeled Trump "a sniveling coward".
