GRASS-ROOTS POWER: THE PRES­I­DENT GOES TO IOWA

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

Pres­i­dent Trump re­turns to Iowa on Wed­nes­day for one of his fa­vorite ac­tiv­i­ties: a cheer­ful, jumbo-sized pub­lic rally in Cedar Rapids, staged at the cheer­ful and jumbo-sized U.S. Cel­lu­lar Cen­ter arena, which can seat about 8,000 peo­ple. Nat­u­rally, lo­cal ac­tivists from Amer­i­cans for Demo­cratic Action Iowa will be on hand to protest his visit, but no mat­ter.

Mr. Trump will also visit the much praised agri­cul­ture depart­ment of nearby Kirk­wood Com­mu­nity Col­lege, and he’s bring­ing some fire­power with him. Along for the visit: Agri­cul­ture Secretary Sonny Per­due and Com­merce Secretary Wil­bur Ross; agri­cul­tural trade, high-tech farm­ing and bio­fu­els are likely on the agenda.

Mr. Trump will also be of­fer­ing a hearty hand­shake for for­mer Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, re­cently named as U.S. am­bas­sador to China. In­quir­ing minds won­der if Iowa’s mil­lion­aire agri-en­trepreneur, GOP donor and po­lit­i­cal “king­maker” Bruce Rastet­ter will also be along for the visit.
