<pre><pre>Intermediates of the United States 2018: Trump backs the Ted Cruz rally in Texas US Midterms 2018 News

President Donald Trump has supported an old rival in Texas in the run-up to mid-term elections in the United States.

Sen. Ted Cruz dominated Trump in the Texas Republican primary in 2016, but ultimately lost the nomination.

The two called themselves "liars," but now they are united in their effort to prevent the Democrats from taking control of Congress. At a rally of the Cruz campaign in Houston, the president spoke again against immigration, a hot topic in the border state.
