President Donald Trump was greeted with a thunderous reception on Tuesday when he stepped onto the Fox News town hall stage in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The seismic crowd of Iowans turned out in droves to hear from the 45th president in his first televised event since the news of his third indictment.
According to Fox News host Sean Hannity, many of the “thousands” of attendees began lining up outside the venue a day before the scheduled start time. To begin the conversation, Hannity referenced a post by Trump on Truth Social that details how he is the target of another political witch hunt.
Trump told the audience that he received the letter of indictment from Joe Biden’s Department of Justice on Sunday night. Moreover, he stated that the motive of the legal prosecution stems from Democrats attempting to influence the 2024 election.
“It’s interference with the election. It’s election interference,” said Trump. In addition, Trump described the actions as unprecedented in American history and a “disgrace.”
Furthermore, Trump emphasized that the “DOJ has become a weapon for the Democrats.”
One possible reason for the political persecution could be that Biden is scared of Trump’s popularity. After mentioning that he is the frontrunner for the presidency, Trump alluded that Biden wants to “demean, diminish, and frighten people.”
However, Trump confidently stated that he is not afraid and that he is “going to make America great again.” In response, the crowd erupted in applause.
Afterward, President Trump spoke about America’s bleak state of affairs due to the policies of Joe Biden. Yet, he did not forget to offer hope for a bright future. With optimism, Trump stated that there’s “never been more spirit among MAGA” and America First.”
The Iowa Republican Caucus will take place on Jan. 15, 2024.
