President Donald Trump’s weekend stops in the Hawkeye State flexed the MAGA muscle of the Midwest, as electrified supporters gathered in both Ankeny and Cedar Rapids to hear remarks from the 45th president amid his 2024 bid to recapture the White House.
The Trump campaign shared special photos from both events, where the president met with supporters at back-to-back Team Trump Iowa Commit to Caucus events, promising to double down on strengthening Iowan agriculture, ethanol, and the national economy.
The president’s first stop was in Ankeny, where he received a celebrity welcome at the Whiskey River restaurant. Trump entered the room to his signature song. “God Bless the USA,” by Lee Greenwood. He continued to shake hands with excited Iowans and sign autographs long after the music subsided and before he made his way to the podium.
In true Trump fashion, he stepped onto the stage in the small room, joking, “I don’t have any notes, I don’t have anything – I’m up here all by myself with all the fake news back there.”
On Saturday, he elevated the unmatched agenda of the America First movement, reminding everyone that he had kept not only America safe, but the “ENTIRE WORLD safe” when he was in the White House.
The president made a second stop on Saturday in Cedar Rapids, where he also spoke to a packed house of supporters, delivering a speech full of common sense solutions to today’s most pressing issues: inflation, the southern border crisis, the violence erupting overseas, Biden’s war on American energy independence, and the increasing pressures of government overreach.
With the Iowa caucus just a few weeks ago, President Trump is hitting the campaign trail harder than ever in the Hawkeye State, and the investment is paying off in spades. According to data from Civiqs, Trump is holding a massive 36-point lead in Iowa ahead of the Jan. 15, 2024 caucuses over Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
The president vowed that his prospective victory in 2024 would be “the greatest comeback in HISTORY.”
