Trump criticized the Biden administration and vowed to take back America in his first appearance in the state of Iowa after last year’s presidential election.
Speaking before thousands of supporters at a rally in the city of Des Moines on October 9, former US president Donald Trump criticized his successor Joe Biden and the trillion-dollar infrastructure and spending laws that are currently being stalled in Congress, accusing Democrats of bringing the country to “the brink of bankruptcy”.
“We will take back America,” Trump said in his 90-minute speech.
The former president also praised his victory over Biden in Iowa in last year’s election, by 53% and 45% respectively. “For a disaster like the Biden administration, no one can blame the great state of Iowa, because we’ve done really well here. Iowa is a great place,” he stressed.
Trump also revealed he could set his campaign slogan in the event of a re-election in 2024 as “Make America Great Again – Again”.
Trump’s approval rating in Iowa is higher now than when he was in the White House. 53% of Iowans support Trump, compared with 48% when he was in office, according to a recent Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa survey. Biden’s approval rating in this survey is 37%, while disapproval is 61%.
In his speech, Trump continued to repeat accusations of rigging in the 2020 presidential election and urged Republican voters to go to the midterm ballot next year, as Republicans are determined to regain control of the Senate. and the House of Representatives.
“We must send extremists a message they will never forget,” the former president said.
