President Donald Trump rallied with a massive crowd of supporters in Fort Dodge, Iowa on Saturday.
Iowa State Senator Tim Kraayenbrink said that President Trump is "a man that has a record of being a tried and tested leader… he’s a man that puts his country before himself and he’s a man that’s fighting for each and every one of us every single day.”
Iowa State Representative Mike Sexton said that President Trump will "once again make us energy independent."
Highlights from President Donald Trump's speech:
President Trump: "Under my leadership we will have a rebirth of loyalty to the American farmer starting at noon on Inauguration Day 2025...to defend our farmers I will pass the Trump Reciprocal Trade Act...If China, or any other country, makes us pay a 100 or 200 or 300 percent tariff or tax, we will make them pay an identical 100 or 200 or 300 percent tariff or tax right back."
President Trump: "Under Crooked Joe Biden we have uncontrolled inflation, an invasion of our southern border, rampant crime, wars in Europe and a war that just started in the Middle East."
President Trump: "It's very simple. Crooked Joe is weak on China because Crooked Joe is owned by China."
President Trump: "Never forget our enemies want to take away my freedom, because I'll never let them take away your freedom. They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you. In the end, they're not after me, they're after you, and I just happen to be standing in the way."
President Trump: "The Biden plan for TPP 2 will be dead on day one."
President Trump: "Crooked Joe puts China first, he puts Asia first, he puts Ukraine first, he puts illegal aliens first, environmental maniacs first...he puts America last, he puts Iowa last...he puts our workers last...he puts everything that's good in our country last. I put Iowa first and I put America first, every single time."
President Trump: "We're going to allow gasoline-powered engines, but we're not going to allow child sexual mutilation."
President Trump:"For four straight years, I kept America safe, I kept Israel safe, I kept Ukraine safe, and I kept the whole world safe."
President Trump: "On my first day back in the White House, I will terminate every open borders policy of the Biden administration. I will stop the invasion on our southern border and begin the largest domestic deportation operation in American history. I will immediately restore and expand the Trump travel ban on entry from terror-plagued countries and I will implement strong ideological screening on all immigrants."
