President Trump's Houston speech to be offered outside at 'Big Texas' tailgate

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The "Making America Great Again" rally planned for today at the Toyota Center will come with a tailgate.

President Trump's campaign announced plans for the tailgate to complement the main rally inside in response to receiving more than 100,000 requests for tickets to the event online.

The campaign said the tailgate will take place in the afternoon leading up to the rally that's starting at 6:30 p.m. Live music, food trucks and appearances by campaign spokespeople are planned. In addition, people will be able to view the president's speech on big screens outside.

It's not known exactly where around the Toyota Center the tailgate will take place.

Late last week, Trump's camp announced they were moving the rally from its originally announced NRG Arena.

According to Trump's campaign, this is the sixth rally that the president has held in Texas and the second in the Houston area since he first began his race for president in June 2015.

Ticket requests were being taken at the Trump campaign website.

People can only register for up to two tickets. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.
