Donald Trump Criticizes Biden and Takes a Swipe at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at Iowa GOP Lincoln Dinner

Former President Donald Trump, while addressing a sold-out crowd at the GOP Lincoln Dinner in Des Moines, Iowa, pledged to defeat President Joe Biden in the upcoming elections. During his speech, he highlighted his record during his term in the White House and criticized Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his declining poll numbers.

Trump specifically mentioned an Echelon poll that showed him leading Biden by 7 points in swing states. This favorable poll result is likely to boost Trump’s confidence as he considers a potential presidential run in the future.

The Iowa GOP Lincoln Dinner serves as a significant platform for Republican candidates to engage with voters, showcase their accomplishments, and outline their strategies for the upcoming elections. With Trump’s presence at the event, the atmosphere was charged with political discussions and anticipation for the 2024 election cycle.

“We’re beating Biden 43-39 while DeSanctus is losing to Biden 33-38. In other polls I’m leading Biden by six, seven, eight and 11 points, while DeSanctus is losing to Biden in all cases. I wouldn’t take a chance on that one. I’m leading in the primary polls by 50 and 55 percent against him and others. A poll just came out where I’m leading in Iowa — we love Iowa — by 34 points,” Trump said.

Trump also said he’s leading in New Hampshire by 35 points, and South Carolina “by over 30 points,” despite two other candidates, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, hailing from the state. He said he’s ahead in Ohio by 52 points and beating Biden in the state by 10 points.

“We flipped 200 counties that voted twice for Barack Hussein Obama, including an astounding 31 counties right here in Iowa. These are counties that never went for Republicans and they went for me,” Trump said.

Trump concluded his speech by slamming Biden’s performance as president and promising to defeat him.

“We set records and together we will crush crooked Joe Biden, the most crooked president in the history of our country by far and also grossly incompetent, doesn’t know what he’s doing, he’s destroying our country. We will win the election big and we will make America great again.”

Trump has been leading in the polls since he launched his 2024 presidential campaign at Mar-a-Lago in November 2022.
