The Republican nominee for President, Donald J Trump visited the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa as part of his continued focus on key states, many of which President Barack Obama carried in 2008 and 2012. His second visit to Iowa this month follows Monday night's debate where many in the media were saying he lost to Democrat challenger, Hillary Clinton. Trump was on offense today accusing Clinton of being both corrupt and incompetent and questioning how she escaped criminal charges in her email controversy.
A packed crowd of about 1,200 supporters greeted former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani with enthusiastic cheers and applauds as he laid out a case for why Trump should be the next President of the United States. This is Giuliani's second visit to the Mid-America Center, his first was in 2004 when campaigning for then President George W. Bush's re-election.
,Trump has been hitting hard at the media during the campaign saying that they aren't fairly covering him while ignoring Clinton's many scandals involving her private email server and the deleted 30,000 emails that the FBI is looking for. Several in attendance wore stickers on the back of their shirts, in full view of the media that read "Propaganda By Omission American News Media." At one point during his speech Trump talked about how he's leading in several polls by 20% or 80% but the media doesn't want to hear it or report it, pointing back to the media. At which point the crowd turned around and boo'd us.
Trump's campaign started a new outreach this week to Christian conservatives which Trump boasted about. The Trump campaign knows that many evangelicals stayed home when President Obama was re-elected in 2012 and that he needs them to vote in large numbers if he hopes to beat Clinton in November.
