President Donald Trump brought unrivaled energy to Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Saturday, for a Team Trump Iowa Commit to Caucus event just 58 days out from the anticipated Iowa caucuses.
“I’m thrilled to be back with thousands of proud, hardworking American Patriots in the heartland of America,” he declared.
The president was greeted by a packed house at Fort Dodge High School, where Iowans chanted “USA” and occasionally interjected into his remarks with cheers of support.
Trump said, “Less than one year from now we will take back the White House from this Crooked person,” he said, referring to Joe Biden, adding that he would officially put an end to “Joe Biden’s Banana Republic.”
The 45th president also attacked Joe Biden on his record on dealing with China on Saturday, calling him a “corrupt politician and he’s totally compromised,” noting that he was “owned” by many foreign countries.
Trump joked that he was so eager to get to work in 2025 in a prospective second term that he would be signing legislation on his way up the White House stairs on Inauguration Day, cracking that he would put a little desk on the “20th stair.”
He also warned that Biden was planning to return to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which he scorched as one of the “worst” deals of all time. Trump vowed to put an end to that on day one of his second term.
“We’ll sign before we get to the TOP of the steps!” he remarked.
