Trump sons upbeat
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
