The public is welcome to attend the free event. Online reservations for tickets are available at the Trump campaign website.
The event’s announcement coincides with Trump’s efforts to increase support in Iowa, a crucial early-voting state in the 2024 presidential election.
A significant portion of Iowa’s economy is based on agriculture, and Trump has promised to help farmers financially and to negotiate trade agreements that will be advantageous to American agriculture during his presidency.
Trump will probably use the panel discussion as a platform to talk about his record on agriculture and his future goals. He will have the chance to speak with Iowan farmers and learn about their issues.
On July 14, 2023, the event is set to start at 7:00 PM CT.
