Trump Supporters at Iowa Rally See ‘Civil War Coming,’ Say He Will ‘Save the World’ – Newsweek

3 min read

Donald Trump supporters at the Iowa rally on Saturday, waiting for the ex-president to speak, worried about “a civil war coming” and said he “will save the world.”

Trump will address today’s rally, being held at the Iowa State Fairground in Des Moines, at about 8 p.m. ET. Polls show he’s more popular in the state than President Joe Biden. Trump had a 53 percent approval rating, according to a recent a Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll, the highest he’s ever received in Iowa. Biden languished at 31 percent.

Attendee Lori Levi told MSNBC that Republicans are about “as weak as they possibly could be in Congress.” She said that in her mind GOP lawmakers are like Democrats, except for senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul and few others.

“They’re establishment. They don’t care about the American people because they’re in their elite little tower,” she said. “So we’re just sick of it, you know, and we’re not going to take it anymore. I see a civil war coming. I do. I see civil war coming.”

Another attendee said that her entire family “turned liberal” and that they hate Trump. But, she hoped that this would turn around, adding that she has “complete faith that this man [Trump] is going to basically save the world. Not just us. Everyone.”

Meanwhile, one Trump supporter said that she decided to move from Alaska to Iowa after she learned that the former president will be holding a rally in Des Moines.

“He tells everything straight as it is, no BS, and that’s what this country needs. No lies,” she said of Trump.

Rich Thomas, another rally attendee, said that he came to the rally to give “documents” to Trump’s legal team. “Our king, Jesus Christ, has spoken to put you back in your office at the White House now,” he said.

A video circulating on Twitter showed flags and “Trump won” banners installed along the route leading up to the rally, with one supporter saying “Iowa is Trump country.”

In another clip, three Trump supporters said that they were at the rally because “he is the greatest president, best we have ever had” and described Biden as “dead.”

“I support him, he supports us,” one attendee said of Trump.

Rally organizers told We Are Iowa they expect tens of thousands of attendees on Saturday. Though doors didn’t open until the afternoon, some attendees were seen camping out overnight on Thursday and Friday.
