Trump Takes Texas, in Photos

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made a sweep through Texas on Tuesday, meeting with donors in Fort Worth and Austin. In the capital city, Trump appeared with television host Sean Hannity at the Moody Theater downtown, drawing dozens of anti-Trump protesters dressed as clowns before a fundraising event at the private Headliners Club nearby. His trip culminated in a rally at the Travis County Expo Center where Trump made an appeal to African-American voters, railed against “Crooked Hillary” Clinton and promised, of course, to “make America great again.”
