SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The big red Team Trump tour bus made a quick, unannounced stop at the Alamo on the first day that the church reopened to the public since March. It had been closed since March because of COVID-19.
Brad Parscale, senior adviser for data and digital operations, and other high- profile Trump supporters stepped off the bus and took photos Thursday in front of the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
“We’re doing a bus tour with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Senior Adviser Katrina Pierson, and myself. We’re doing some fundraising and showing support for our volunteers,”Parscale told KTSA News.
He also took time to do some shopping.
“I just bought a hat over at Paris Hatters,” he said. “It’s a Stetson. I never had one before, so they talked me into it.”
Parscale also got to visit his family, who lives here in San Antonio. His father moved his business here when Parscale, who’s 6-foot-8, played basketball at UTSA.
“As you know, I was a local here in San Antonio for 20 years, so it’s good to come back home and see my parents. I’ve been on the road for a few years and I’m working for Trump everyday to make sure he wins big on November 3rd,” said Parscale.
The three-city Team Trump bus tour in Texas started Thursday in San Antonio with a couple of scheduled events and an interview on the Jack Riccardi Show on KTSA, in addition to more quick stops. The bus was scheduled to go from San Antonio to Granger. Friday, the big red Team Trump tour bus will be in Bedford.
Lt.Gov. Dan Patrick expressed optimism about winning Texas, but the Texas Democratic Party Chair said “it has never been clearer that they are on the verge of breaking.”
Gilberto Hinojosa cited the ongoing pandemic.
“Texas families live with the doubt and uncertainty that this president has a plan for combatting, much less ending, this pandemic. Texans are demanding change,” said Hinojosa.
