Donald Trump’s rally in Iowa has been canceled due to tornado warnings


Former President Donald Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, announced Saturday that his campaign in Des Moines, Iowa, will be suspended due to tornado warnings for the area.

“Iowa Tornado Watch”. “For the safety of our great patriots, we have been asked to delay or cancel today’s march,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post. “I live near the Palm Beach airport, but due to the bad weather in Iowa, we’re going to be delayed. Seek shelter or safe haven!

In a follow-up post shortly after, Trump said his campaign was “forced to cancel” the outdoor event.

As of 5:30 p.m., the National Weather Service listed a wide area of ​​the state under a “tornado watch” from Sioux City in the west to Iowa City in the east.

The set had to take place in a duel with events. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who hasn’t announced his candidacy but is expected to run for president, is in attendance Saturday in the Hokie state, along with Rep. Randy Fenestra (R-IA) at his annual summer fundraiser. , followed by a Republican Party fundraiser in Cedar Rapids.

A Friday poll commissioned by the Center for American Greatness and conducted by National Research showed Trump has a comfortable lead over declared candidates and other potential rivals in Iowa. Out of 500 likely voters in the GOP caucus, 44% support Trump in the more populous state, giving him a 26% lead over DeSantis by 18 points. No other candidate has double-digit support.

Former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) is third with 6%, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence at 4%. Three percent of respondents support businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, while former Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) are tied at one percent each. Gov. Chris Sununu (R-NH) has no support in such an area.

In a hypothetical head-to-head matchup with DeSantis, which is highly unlikely, Trump’s approval rating is 45% and DeSantis’ weight is 33%. Another 11 percent have not been resolved.

The national survey polled 500 likely Republican caucus voters from May 9-11, and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.38 percentage points.
