Following President Trump’s sweeping victory in Iowa, Joe Biden was forced to acknowledge the obvious: Trump is the clear frontrunner on the other side.
And then he trashed “Extreme MAGA Republicans.”
In a post on X, Biden wrote:
Looks like Donald Trump just won Iowa. He’s the clear front-runner on the other side at this point. But here’s the thing: this election was always going to be you and me vs. extreme MAGA Republicans. It was true yesterday and it’ll be true tomorrow.

So if you’re with us, chip…
From the Associated Press:
In what was the lowest-turnout caucus in a quarter-century, participants endured life-threatening cold and dangerous driving conditions to meet in hundreds of schools, churches and community centers across the state.
But those who ventured out delivered a roughly 30-point win for Trump that smashed the record for a contested Iowa Republican caucus with a margin of victory exceeding Bob Dole’s nearly 13-percentage-point victory in 1988.

Time to ditch the distractions, unite behind Trump and focus on beating Joe Biden!
With 99 percent of the votes counted, Trump came in on top with 51 percent.
DeSantis took a distant second-place with 21 percent of the votes, and Haley took third-place with 19 percent.
Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy secured eight percent of the vote before withdrawing from the race and endorsing Trump.
According to Reuters, “That victory margin far surpassed the previous record of 12.8 percentage points for Bob Dole in 1988.”
As Trump maintains a loyal base within his party, Biden’s approval rating has plummeted to the lowest point of any president in the last 15 years.
“Among all adults, Biden’s approval rating is just 33% in this poll, worse than Trump’s low as president (36%) and the lowest since George W. Bush from 2006-2008. Fifty-eight percent disapprove of Biden’s work,” ABC News reported.
