President Trump called on the American people to “guard the vote” in the 2024 presidential election, slamming his political opponents for being “guilty as hell” of cheating in 2020.
“We want to win this one,” he said. “…But you have to learn from history. If you don’t learn from history, you’re a fool.”
The president made his remarks on Saturday at the Whiskey River restaurant in Ankeny, Iowa, at a Team Trump caucus event.
He asked Americans in important swing states to “watch those votes when they come in,” highlighting trouble spots in places like Philadelphia, Detroit, and Atlanta. “The most important thing that’s coming up is to GUARD THE VOTE,” he reiterated.
Trump called America’s election system “like a third world nation,” and voiced his hope that some of the past election cases related to 2020 would be brought to court so that evidence related to alleged election cheating or meddling could be “prosecuted.”
“They’re going to try and cheat like hell,” he warned.
In true Trump fashion, he tempered his odious warning with a hefty dose of hope, promising to make America great again and remaining resolutely optimistic that he would win Iowa in the January caucuses in December.
“I think we’re going to run the table in many cases,” he commented, speaking about the 2024 general election.
He noted that a key part of overcoming his political opponents’ strategy to stop him from reclaiming the White House in 2024 was to “swamp them.” He explained that dominating the Republican primary race was a part of that.
The president’s remarks in Ankeny preceded a second stop in Cedar Rapids at another caucus event.
