President Donald Trump returned to Des Moines, Iowa to kick off his latest “Save America” rally. On Saturday, the 45th president highly criticized Joe Biden and his administration for mishandling a long list of issues the country has been facing for the past nine months under Democrat leadership.

Pointing out how Biden fumbled the bag with multiple issues such as the coronavirus pandemic, the Afghanistan withdrawal and the border crisis, Trump made his own list of campaign-styled promises while telling his supporters “we’re going to take America back.”

“After just 9 months under Biden, violent criminals and blood thirsty gangs are taking over our streets, illegal aliens and deadly drug cartels are taking over our borders, inflation is taking over our economy, China is taking over our jobs, the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, lunatic leftists are taking over our schools and radical socialists are taking over our country,” he explained. “We’re not gonna let that happen.”

When addressing the multi-trillion dollar spending bill the left has continued to push, the president warned his supporters about the potential dangers the future of the country would face if the bill was passed. Trump also noted not only would this be the largest spending bill of all time, but also the largest tax haul to “end America as we know it.”

“It’s a socialist transformation bill. It’s an open borders bill,” he stated. “It’s an American energy destruction bill.”

Trump encouraged all his supporters and Republicans to stay strong and fight against the bill to protect the future of the U.S. in order to bring the country back to greatness. Although he has not officially announced his run in 2024, the 45th president said he had big plans in efforts of “making America great again, again.”

Trump’s plans include his promises to end illegal immigration, make sure election fraud doesn’t happen again and to build back a strong force against foreign threats such as China. Trump said in order to achieve these goals, the right needs to take back control of Congress and fix what the Biden administration has been unable to repair.


Quotes from President Trump at the Iowa Rally: 

  • On the border crisis: “We are becoming a dumping ground for very serious criminals. Biden is supposed to be protecting our country from foreign invasion. He said, “Come on in.”  Biden is paying contractors millions of dollars to NOT complete the wall. Is that incompetence or just bad ideology? And it wasn’t a whip by the way.” 
  • On the Republican party: “We will always stand with law enforcement.” 
  • On the corrupt 2020 election: “They rigged the election and now, based on the rigged election, they’re destroying our country.  Remember, this is not about me being robbed of an election. This is about the American people having their country taken away from them.  23,344 mail-in ballots came from people who no longer lived at that address. No chain of custody for 1.9 million votes.  2,500 duplicated ballots without missing serial numbers. Thousands and thousands of adjudicated blank mail-in ballots, ballots without signatures, and ballots from people who moved out of state. Files were deleted during the election in violation of federal law including a purge of the election management system. They used Covid in order to cheat.” 
  • On Arizona and the AZ Attorney General: “Arizona was, in my opinion, the least corrupt of the swing states. It’s now in the hands of the AZ Attorney General and let’s hope that he does the right thing for the country.” 
  • On Georgia: “There were 43,000 absentee ballot votes counted in DeKalb County Georgia that violated the chain of custody rules. There were many other infractions in Georgia, but Secretary of State Raffensberger and Brian Kemp hurt the country very badly, he’s afraid of Stacy Abrams. He refuses to take on the corrupt Democrats in the state of Georgia. I know it’s fraught with danger but you have to do it for this country.” 
  • On the Giant Illegal Ballot Harvesting Operation: “A new investigation alleges a gigantic illegal ballot harvesting operation involving large numbers of people in the state of Georgia and many other places.” 
  • On Stacey Abrams: “They do whatever she says, pretty amazing. I’d like to run against Stacey Abrams.” 
  • On Pennsylvania: “Hopefully the people of Pennsylvania are angry. This (voter fraud) cannot be allowed ti happen and will not allow the Republican majority to be reelected if they don’t get to the bottom of the trash. Thousands of voters reported receiving at least two ballots in the mail without requesting them. Thousands were complaining they were not allowed to vote because, they were told, they already voted. Some walked out crying. There has never been anything like this that has happened in our country before.” 
  • On Philadelphia: “The US Attorney of Philadelphia said, ‘In writing, I was told not to do anything, not to pursue it (the election fraud)’.” 
  • On Bellwether States: “In Michigan the legislature found that over 300,000 voters were listed even though they hadn’t voted in over 20 years. I won 18 out of 19 bellwether states.  No other president has ever done that.”
