Trump continues his run of rallies

Donald Trump hosted a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on December 2. The ex-president’s campaign for the 2024 election currently sees him as the Republican front runner.

Trump’s Iowa rally has seen more attention than some of his other recent speeches for his controversial claim of current President, Joe Biden, as a threat to democracy. Taking to Instagram after his speech, Trump referred to Biden as “the destroyer of American democracy.” This comes after the president claimed Trump was “determined to destroy American democracy”, most recently on November 19 at his own rally in Minnesota.

Trump’s Iowa speech contained many usual tropes of his rhetoric. Considering this year’s investigation’s against Trump, he claimed Biden has been “weaponizing government against political opponents like a third world political tyrant.” Trump appeared contradictory throughout his address. He claimed “America does not like fascists” but then boasted about his cordial relations with Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who Trump famously met in June 2019.

Trump frequently referenced the “stolen” election of 2020 and he claimed the entire electoral system in America was “rigged.” These terms have been used by Trump since the 2020 election concluded, which led to the events of January 6, 2021, at the US Capitol. Trump insisted that those who were arrested during the event are “political prisoners” under Joe Biden’s administration. 

Trump’s optimism is backed by his current polling scores against other Republican nominees. As of November 26, Trump is polled to win 64% of the Republican vote, with Florida Governor Ron de Santis in second place with 14%. Trump as the 2024 Republican nominee would appear as near certain.
