Thousands of people show up at Mid-America Center for president's rally
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia (FOX42KPTM) - People by the thousands braved the cold and the rain Tuesday to see President Trump in Council Bluffs. Shortly after 3:00 P.M., crowds begin to trickle into the Mid-America Center.
"It means a lot to support my commander-in-chief," said Kevin Cammack, a supporter of the president.
Cammack showed off a ticket he had gotten and told FOX 42 News the rain wasn't going to keep him away. Others joined him.
"They're willing to show their support no matter what."
Cammack believed there was a reason behind the large crowd.
"It's a testament to his leadership."
Not everybody was supportive of the president. Iowa Democrats believe he has hurt the rural part of the state during his time in office. According to critics, the president's agriculture policy has cost Iowa farmers more than $2 billion.
As the president wraps up his trip in Council Bluffs, he has more rallies planned this week, including in the state of Ohio. The trips follow an appearance he made in Topeka, Kansas recently on the heels of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
