Trump Makes Touching Phone Call To Elderly Iowa Couple to Make Up For Canceling Rally

Former President Donald Trump was scheduled to hold a rally in Iowa on Saturday, but his campaign canceled the event at the last minute because of tornado warnings in the area.

However, Trump nevertheless made an electronic appearance in the state.

Members of Trump’s Iowa campaign arm traveled to the home of an elderly couple who have been longtime supporters of the former president to bring them some campaign swag and to introduce them to him personally via phone.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t come to the rally today, but we wanted to bring you some gear, and we got a phone call from someone who’d like to say hey, if that’s okay with you,” said one of Trump’s campaign workers in a video posted to Rumble.

He then informed the couple that Trump had called the staffer’s cellphone and that he wanted to talk to them.


“How are you? It’s Donald Trump, and I wanted to see you today. But a little thing called tornadoes yeah, they prevailed, but I just wanted to say hello to you, and I look forward to seeing again the next time and very special people. You’ve been right from the beginning, and you’ve been with us, and you’ve been doing the Iowa caucuses for a long time, so I just wanted to say hello to you,” the former president said.

“Thank you for calling, sir,” said the elderly man.

“We wanted to greet you, too. Well, we’ll take you. We’ll do that again. We’ll be there soon,” Trump said. “I will look forward to seeing you both, and we’ll have a little fun and stay healthy. I hear you’re looking just great looking people. You just stay healthy, and I’ll see you soon. Thank you for everything. We appreciate it.”

“You’re welcome, sir. Thank you,” the supporter said.


A new survey released last week showed Trump with a commanding lead over President Joe Biden, who on Saturday accused white Americans of being the country’s biggest “domestic terrorist threat.”

The ABC/Washington Post found that Trump has a whopping 7-point lead over Biden, Mediaite reported.

“According to the survey, the president trails his predecessor by 7 points in a hypothetical 2024 general election matchup. Respondents were asked whether they would ‘definitely’ vote for Trump or Biden, ‘probably’ vote for Trump or Biden, or vote for someone else or not vote at all. Among those who ‘definitely’ prefer one candidate over the other, Trump leads Biden 36-32. But when those ‘probably’ voting are added to the tally, Trump’s margin balloons to 7 points — as he holds a 45-38 advantage over Biden,” the report said.

“The poll found Biden would fare only slightly better if the Republican nominee were Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). The president is tied with DeSantis 32-32 among those ‘definitely’ backing a particular candidate. But when the ‘probably’ category is added, DeSantis pulls ahead 42-37,” Mediaite added.

“President Biden’s approval numbers…are nothing short of dismal. Only 36 percent of voters approve of the job the president is doing, compared to 56 percent who do not. The approval number is down 6 points from February, the last time ABC and the Washington Post released a poll, and represents an all-time low for him in that particular survey,” the outled added.

In addition, the survey found that 54 percent of respondents trusted Trump to help manage the economy compared to just 36 percent for Biden.

Dick Morris, a former top political adviser to then-President Bill Clinton, said last week that he doesn’t see much good coming from a second Biden term, but he does see a lot of positives coming from a second Trump term.

“On a host of those issues many, many more on the left and the right essentially agree, and they disagree with the establishment that’s in the center that wants to protect those powers,” Morris told Newsmax. “Donald Trump is uniquely positioned to deal with that.
