To cap off a week of lying to voters about softening his plans to mass deport immigrants and defending his campaign’s support from white nationalists, Donald Trump is joining Joni Ernst, Chuck Grassley and Steve King today in Iowa for a campaign rally.
Trump has a history of racist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic comments — the campaign even cited a hate group in their first ad of the general election — so it’s no surprise that his campaign doubled down on the support he’s enjoyed from white nationalists and neo-Nazis with his hire of Breitbart’s Steve Bannon.
Today’s rally promises more of the same. Make no mistake about it — Trump isn’t pivoting. He’s said he won’t change, and he’ll continue to hurl racist insults and push for nativist and xenophobic immigration policies.
With his visit to Iowa, Donald Trump is attempting to hold on to one of the only battleground states that still holds slim and diminishing potential for him. But Iowa voters won’t take kindly to the hatred, racism and lies that he’s based his campaign on.
