Trump sons up­beat

The Citizen (KZN) - - World -

West Des Moines – Un­der the slo­gan “Keep Iowa Great,” Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s two older sons in­vited them­selves to the Mid­west­ern state on Mon­day, just hours be­fore the first test to see which Demo­crat would face their fa­ther in Novem­ber elec­tions.

“We’re gonna beat them again,” said Eric Trump.

Iowa cau­cus doors were due to open at 7pm last night, with Ver­mont Se­na­tor Bernie San­ders in the lead as polls cast the 78-yearold stan­dard-bearer for the party’s left wing as the favourite.

He is fol­lowed by for­mer vice-pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den.

“When I see the main­stream ideals of so­cial­ism and com­mu­nism ac­tu­ally be­ing pushed – I know we say this as a joke and ev­ery­one’s laugh­ing, but it’s not a joke,” warned Don Jnr.

“There’s still a lot left to be done and Don­ald Trump’s gonna do that,” he added.

The rally, held just be­fore vot­ing for the Iowa cau­cus be­gan, also fea­tured Pres­i­dent Trump’s cam­paign man­ager Brad Parscale. A group of Repub­li­can of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing White House act­ing chief of staff Mick Mul­vaney and com­merce sec­re­tary Wil­bur Ross, were also in at­ten­dance.

Parscale pre­dicted that San­ders would do well in Iowa. And like Don Jnr, Parscale mocked Bi­den’s per­for­mance in the polls af­ter months of cam­paign­ing. – AFP
