Trump Attacks Iowa Gov

It really looks like the Iowa GOP and Republican primary candidate former President Donald Trump may be at war with each other.

There is some background to this, Governor DeSantis first started campaigning with re-elected Republican Governor Kim Reynolds. Apparently, that drew the ire of the former president who took a swing at Reynolds.

On the social media platform, Trump wrote, “I love Iowa, protected & expanded Ethanol, got 28 billion dollars from China for our great farmers, ended the Estate Tax on farms, made the best trade deals in history, introduced the world to our farmer, & kept Iowa’s “First in the Nation” statues. I opened up the Governor position for Kim Reynolds,& when she fell behind, I endorsed her, did big rallies, & she won. Now, she wants to remain “neutral.” I don’t invite her to events! DeSanctus down 45 points!”

Reynolds has previously said that she will accompany any Republican running in the primary.

“I want to welcome everyone to this state,” Reynolds said in a February interview. “And if I weigh in, I don’t know if they’ll feel all that welcome. But, you know, I’ve made it clear, I will be happy to help introduce you, help travel the state, connect in any way that I can — especially to make sure that if we’ve got big things going on that they know about it.”

Popular Iowa Evangelical leader Vander Plaats did not take kindly to Trump’s words.
“Forest Gump says, ‘stupid is as stupid does,'” Vander Plaats wrote. “My Mom says don’t call anyone, ‘stupid.’ So, I won’t. However, this isn’t smart. Iowa is wide open.”

Former head of the Iowa GOP, Dr. Cody Hoefert wasn’t thrilled and hit back at the former president.

Reynolds has appeared alongside most of the 2024 presidential candidates in Iowa including US Senator Tim Scott, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and she introduced Trump at a rally in March 2023 in Davenport.

At the time she said the former president, “delivered for Iowa.”

When Trump was running for office in 2016 he lost the Iowa Caucus to Senator Ted Cruz. In the general election, Trump won the state of Iowa by 51.15%. In 2020, Trump also dominated Biden winning 53.09% of the vote.
