"I mean, no, there weren’t 15,000 people who turned out in Phoenix to see Donald Trump," Maddow said on July 13, 2015. "But there were a few thousand people. That was bigger than the other Republican candidates are getting, in terms of crowd size."
In a statement shared with PunditFact, the city fire department said capacity for the North Ballroom was 4,200 people. The doors were closed at 4,169 attendees, said Phoenix Fire Department spokeswoman Shelly Jamison.
Cruz described the meeting between the two men as “terrific” and called Trump, “one of a kind.”
"I am proud to stand with Donald Trump. I like him and respect him," Cruz said in a recent interview on the Fox Business network.
