Trump Stops In Sioux City Days Before Nov. Election
The presidential candidate voiced concerns with Obamacare and taxes to Iowa voters
With the November 2016 election just two days away, candidates are traveling all over the nation vying for people’s vote.
In Sioux City, that candidate was Republican Donald J Trump.
During the rally, Trump didn’t say anything we haven’t heard before.
“We will make America great again,” says Trump. “And yes, we will build a Great Wall.”
“It’s pretty much what we we’re expected and what we hoped for,” says supporter Jeff Zimmerman.
But it doesn’t matter, because the message behind these slogans is why thousands support Trump.
“Just how he speaks, it’s going to tell us that the United States is going to be a nation of power, we’re no longer going to be fearful of the nations like we are today,” says USD student Stone Conley.
Conley was one of the first people to arrive in Sioux City for the rally, standing in line since 2 a.m.
Trump took the stage a little after noon.
“He’s showing that if he wins, anyone can be president and that’s a good sign for me that hopefully one day I can be president,” says Conley.
And so could an 8-year-old Donald Trump super fan.
“He’s going to make more jobs, he’s going to lower our taxes and then he’s going to destroy ISIS,” says Mason Haliburton on why he loves the presidential candidate.
The first thing Trump told Iowa voters Sunday is that he wants to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“Companies are leaving, insurers are fleeing, doctors are leaving and deductibles are going through the roof,” says Trump.
And he won’t stop there.
Trump says he’ll propose lowering taxes from 35 percent to 15 percent on American business.
“That’s a massive tax cut for the family farms and folks in Iowa that work so hard.”
He says he is running to protect American workers.
“I went from being a true insider to perhaps the ultimate outsider,” says Trump. “People that have known my forever say ‘Donald what happened? We are going to make America great again, that’s what happened’.”
“I believe that his heart is pure and he just wants to give back,” adds Barb Kamsta of Sheldon, Iowa.
Before Donald Trump took the stage, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and U.S. Senator Joni Ernst encouraged everyone to vote for Trump this Tuesday.
According to the Des Moine Register/Mediacom, Trump is leading in Iowa by 7 points.
