DESPITE FREEZING TEMPS, IOWANS SHOWED UP IN DROVES FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP
The path to the 2024 presidential election has already begun, and Hawkeye State residents can demonstrate it.
Thousands of Iowans flocked to Davenport on Monday night to hear President Donald Trump speak, filling the Adler Theater to capacity.
According to RSBN’s Liz Willis, there were more than 3,500 people inside, which was the venue’s maximum capacity.
Despite the frigid Iowa winter conditions, around 1,200 to 1,500 more ardent fans waited in long lines outside.
Willis also mentioned that more than 75 counties in Iowa were represented at Monday’s event, which centered on President Trump’s America First education policy program.
The Iowa campaign event for Trump’s 2024 presidential run was not an official rally, but the audience’s atmosphere resembled the excitement of a trademark Trump campaign rally in the manner of 2022, 2020, and 2016.
Trump was welcomed with cries of “USA” as he ascended the stage to the tune of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA,” his signature rally song.
“You know, we won this wonderful state…we won Iowa twice and unfortunately we’re going to have to do it a third time because something happened the second time,” he told the crowd.
The 45th President reminisced on his administration’s efforts on behalf of Iowa farmers, mentioning his “huge tax relief to family farms” as well as his decision to abolish the “Waters of the United States,” which he described as a “federal power grab over every ditch and every puddle on private land.”
Trump also hit on his strong stance against China, reminding Americans, “I stood up to China as no administration has ever done before.” He additionally touched on the importance of producing ethanol in Iowa, vowing to “go after anyone who wishes to destroy it.”
