Joe Biden, the President of the United States, is calling on his supporters to donate to his campaign after Donald Trump’s victory in the Iowa caucuses. Trump’s win has made him the clear favorite in the Republican Party for the upcoming US presidential elections.
Biden acknowledged Trump’s victory in Iowa, stating that “It looks like Donald Trump just won Iowa. He is the clear favorite on the other side right now.” He emphasized that the election has always been about the voters and himself against MAGA extremist Republicans, referring to Trump’s slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ (MAGA).
In his first campaign speeches of 2024, Biden warned that Trump represents a serious threat to American democracy, citing his refusal to accept the results of the 2020 election and condemning political violence. Meanwhile, Trump criticized Biden, describing him as the “worst president” in the history of the country.
Trump won the Iowa Republican caucuses with 51.1 percent of the votes, achieving victory in all counties except one and securing 20 delegates. This is a significant lead over the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, who has eight delegates, and the former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who has seven delegates.
Following the results, Trump expressed that he feels “reinforced” and “enormously honored” by the outcome, reiterating his goal to “Make America Great Again,” just as he did during his previous term.
The Iowa caucuses are the first event in the American primary calendar, where citizens decide the composition of each state’s delegation for the national conventions. The Republican Party will hold its convention between July 15 and 18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, while the Democrats will meet from August 19 to 22 in Chicago, Illinois.
In conclusion, the race for the 2024 US presidential elections is heating up, with Trump emerging as the clear favorite in the Republican Party. Biden is calling on his supporters to contribute to his campaign as he prepares to face off against Trump in the upcoming elections. The results of the Iowa caucuses have set the stage for an intense and closely contested election season.
