President Donald Trump is headed to Iowa this weekend for the second official 2024 campaign rally of his reelection bid, promising to deliver remarks to eager supporters from the “First in the Nation” state.
“I am heading to Des Moines this Saturday to rally with the Great People of Iowa!” Trump said in an official campaign statement. “Unlike Joe Biden, I protected Iowa’s First-in-the-Nation Caucuses, and always will.”
Trump’s upcoming Saturday rally marks the second time he has visited Iowa in 2023. In March, the president delivered remarks to thousands of Iowans at the Adler Theater in Davenport. RSBN reported that Iowans warmly welcomed Trump onstage with shouts of “USA!”
“Every promise I made to the people of Iowa, I fulfilled as your President, and even beyond my promises, I got Farmers 28 Billion Dollars from China, money that was unthinkable by anyone else,” Trump continued in his statement. “I also saved Ethanol, and did more for Iowa than anyone else in history—and will again!”
Headed into Saturday’s big event, President Trump is polling high with GOP voters in Iowa. Per RSBN, Trump has a powerful 30-point lead among a field of six GOP candidates in a current poll from FiveThirtyEight.
Iowa is an important battleground state for presidential candidates hoping to win the White House. The Iowa caucuses are widely regarded as being indicative of whether a candidate will be successful in his or her presidential bid.
President Trump netted a landslide victory in February 2020 at the Republican Iowa Caucuses, the Des Moines Register reported. However, Trump did not win the support of Iowa caucus voters in 2016 (Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, won that year), but he went on to powerfully win the 2016 Republican Party nomination and deal a crushing defeat to Democrat Hillary Clinton in the general election in November 2016, nevertheless.
