President Trump was in Des Moines, IA tonight and thanks to an on-site reporter who sent us these videos, we've got the exclusive scoop!
On a slightly chilly evening, President Trump was in the Hawkeye State to Keep Iowa Red!
And boy was he fired up!
Here was his arrival, to the tune of "Eye of the Tiger".
I think this is absolutely iconic, watching Air Force One creep along in the background set to the Eye of the Tiger.
I LOVE IT!
And since the Crooked Media will never pan the cameras, we will!
Check out the huge crowd that turned out in Des Moines, IA!
And here was our President taking the stage:
The USA Today had more details from the Rally:
Facing tightening polls with less than three weeks before Election Day, President Donald Trump sought to appeal to rural voters at a campaign rally in Iowa, a state he won handily just four years ago.
"You're a big state to me," Trump told thousands of mostly maskless supporters at Des Moines International Airport in a nearly 90-minute speech. "You have tremendous influence and tremendous power and you've never let me down."
The president appeared at his third rally in as many days more than a week after he was hospitalized for COVID-19. Trump is looking to close the gap with Biden, who has consistently maintained an edge over the president in national polls and in some key battleground states.
The pair remain locked in a dead heat in Iowa but the former vice president leads Trump by 6 points in Michigan and Nevada, according to a CBS/YouGov poll taken between Oct. 6-9.
"If I don't get Iowa I won't believe that one," Trump said. "I may never have to come back here again if I don't get Iowa."
Trump disputed polls showing him tied or behind Biden, insisting that his campaign has "more enthusiasm now than we ever did four years ago."
After noting the windy weather, Trump put on his signature "Make America Great Again" red hat, declaring: "If you can wear the hat then I can wear the hat."
"Should I take off the tie or what?" he asked before removing his tie and tossing it into the audience.
Trump wasted no time in attacking Biden and his son Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and China.
"Vice President Biden, you owe the people of America an apology because it turns out, you are a corrupt politician," Trump said. "Let's face it, Joe is shot."
The president held rallies in Florida and Pennsylvania on Monday and Tuesday and is set to hold more in Georgia, North Carolina, Florida and Wisconsin later this week.
His visit comes as Iowa reported a new high for coronavirus-related hospitalizations for the second straight day. On Wednesday, the state was reporting 473 hospitalizations, up from 463 on Tuesday.
Des Moines and Polk County were classified as a "yellow zone" for transmission of the virus, according to the latest report from the White House task force. Federal health officials suggest limiting gatherings to 25 or fewer people in "yellow zone" areas.
The crowd was having an AMAZING time:
And from The Hill:
President Trump donned a Make America Great Again hat and removed his tie to cheers from supporters during a raucous campaign rally in Iowa on Wednesday evening.
“Should I take off the tie or not? What do you think?” Trump asked a large crowd during the rally in Des Moines after putting on his signature red campaign hat when he remarked that it was windy outside. “I don’t know. Maybe. Yes?”
As the crowd cheered, Trump loosened his red tie and threw it to the side of the stage at Des Moines International Airport.
“Oh, that feels so much better. That feels better. That feels good. Now we can all relax and have a good time,” Trump said.
Trump’s rallies typically feature the same themes, but this particular moment was unique.
After the Rally was over, President Trump stuck around to DANCE!
Our President has some good moves!
