Trump checks out agriculture tech in Iowa

Trump checks out agriculture tech in Iowa

At a campaign-style rally in Iowa on Wednesday evening, President Trump praised recent GOP special election victories and his administration's accomplishments to date, while criticizing the media and Democrats.

Simultaneously forgetting where he was and clinging to his anti-environment rhetoric, Donald Trump mocked wind power at his campaign rally in Iowa on Wednesday. This is Trump's first rally since late April, when he held a similar program in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The rally was expected to include a tribute to former Iowa Gov.

The event underscores Trump's comfort in a campaign setting.

Iowa, with its large share of independent voters, could be a proving ground for whether Trump can count on the support of voters beyond his base.

Corbett, 56, told supporters his campaign would outline plans to tackle some of the state's most pressing challenges, from the tight state budget to its polluted waterways.

During a meandering speech, the president, saddled in Washington with sagging job approval numbers, seemed to draw on the energy of his supporters as he made the case that his administration has made "amazing progress" in its first five months.

Reynolds, first elected lieutenant governor in 2010, became governor last month when her political mentor, Gov. Terry Branstad, resigned to become the US ambassador to China.

Portugal did finally make it 1-0 on 34 minutes when Quaresma opened their account after being played in by Ronaldo. Mexico's all-time leading scorer still had time before the end of the half to blaze over from a good position.

Before the rally, Trump appeared at a community college here at an event billed as an opportunity to talk about agricultural innovation.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will join the president at an event that will also act as an unofficial send-off for former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, who will soon take up residence in China as the USA ambassador.

In the wake of last week's shooting at congressional Republicans' morning baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., Trump has called for unity.

But much of Trump's attention was on the suburbs of Atlanta, in the 6th Congressional District race.

But even as his attempts at health care reform face an uncertain future, Trump touted Tuesday night's election victory - in a district that, before Trump, trended solidly Republican - as a sign that Democrats' tactics are failing.

"Congrats to Karen Handel on a HUGE win in GA!" Total disarray. The MAGA Mandate is stronger than ever.

"Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O!"
