When President Donald Trump held a rally to tout his border security plan in El Paso, Texas on Monday, 70% of the 30,000 registered attendees were Hispanic, a Trump campaign manager says.

What’s more, nearly half of those registered were Democrats, Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale told Axios, providing the following estimated breakdown:

  • Democrats: 50%
  • Republicans: 25%
  • Swing Voters: 25%

"Our data shows that President Trump is building a coalition that extends far beyond the traditional Republican base," Pascale told Axios.

Under Trump, the Hispanic unemployment rate remained under five percent in January (4.9%), having hit a record low in two of the last four months (4.4% in October and December of 2018).

Still, as reported, on Wednesday, Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Gwen Moore dismissed the positive economic news for Hispanics, declaring, “Blah, Blah, blah.”:

“GDP is great, unemployment is at an all-time low. African-Americans are doing well. Hispanics are doing well. Wages are rising at the fastest pace in ten years — blah, blah, blah.”
