Trump's putdown of wind energy whips up a backlash in Iowa

Trump's putdown of wind energy whips up a backlash in Iowa”

Even though Handel and Ossoff both insisted that Tuesday's race was a local one, the contest received so much money and national attention precisely because it was seen as a referendum on Trump and his policies.

He also applauded Republican Ralph Norman, who notched a slimmer-than-expected win in a special election to fill the SC congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, his budget director, and mocked Handel's challenger, Jon Ossoff, saying the Democrats "spent $30 million on this kid who forgot to live in the district".

"The truth is, people love us". "I said, 'Because that's the kind of thinking we want ... because they're representing the country".

It was the president's fifth campaign rally since he was inaugurated in January.

It takes a lot of audacity for a man who benefited immensely from having an extremely wealthy father to more or less imply anyone who's poor is likely there as a product of their own lack of intelligence.

"For a 30 to 40 year period, you've influenced this country", Trump said.

Officials say President Trump will visit Kirkwood Community College during his visit to Cedar Rapids on Wednesday.

Trump's supporters have openly welcomed the fact that he is a businessman and not a politician beholden to special interest groups. "And there's nobody I can think of that can do a better job or a more effective job". "Add some money to it!"

That sum is way higher than the aggregate wealth of Barack Obama's Cabinet, which Forbes estimates to be $2.75 billion.

"That's fantastic", he said. While criticizing the opposing party, he called for more bipartisanship but admitted that his negative remarks about the party were likely "making it a little bit hard to get their support".

The event underscores Trump's comfort in a campaign setting.

In talking about his cadre of advisers, he boasted about their financial pedigrees - even though he'd slammed Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail or being too close to those same interests. "That's what we have to have so the world doesn't take advantage". Ted Cruz was blasting the Republican senator's ties to - you guessed it - Goldman Sachs.
