Trump touted several of his Texas endorsements on Saturday — most notably embattled Attorney General Ken Paxton, the state official Trump called “a fighter like no other” who is facing Land Commissioner George P. Bush in a GOP primary runoff this month.

“Under a Republican Congress, we will once and for all ban critical race theory in our schools and we will stand up for parental rights,” Trump said.

“We achieved all sorts of things along the border. It was an incredible thing. It was an incredible period of time,” Trump said of his efforts on border security. “Biden is now systematically surrendering every single advantage that I really brilliantly got. They don’t give me any credit.”

The event was part of the larger America Freedom Tour, which aims to rally conservative energy around Trump. The tour will take its next stop in Memphis, Tennessee on June 18.
