Supporters of former President Donald Trump on Saturday said they are worried about “a civil war coming” and he “will save the world”.
Trump returned to Iowa on Saturday for a rally to kick off the campaign for the next presidential elections pending in 2024. However, he didn’t announce whether he will contest the next elections or not.
Lori Levi, who was present at the rally, told The Guardian that Republicans are about “as weak as they possibly could be in Congress.” She said that in her mind GOP lawmakers are like Democrats, except for Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul.
“They’re establishment. They don’t care about the American people because they’re in their elite little tower,” she said. “So we’re just sick of it, you know, and we’re not going to take it anymore. I see a civil war coming. I do. I see civil war coming.”
One Trump supporter said that she decided to move to Iowa from Alaska after she learned that the former president would be holding a rally in Des Moines.
Iowa is Trump Country
“He tells everything straight as it is, no BS, and that’s what this country needs. No lies,” Levi was quoted as saying by Des Moines Register.
Another person who attended Saturday’s rally said that he came to the event to give “documents” to Trump’s legal team. “Our king, Jesus Christ, has spoken to put you back in your office at the White House now,” he said.
Meanwhile, a video on Twitter displayed flags and “Trump won” banners en route to the rally, with one supporter saying “Iowa is Trump country.”
In another clip, three Trump supporters said that they were the rally because “he is the greatest president, best we have ever had” and described Biden as “dead.”
“I support him, he supports us,” one attendee said of Trump.

Saturday’s rally was attended by tens of thousands of attendees.
Trump Attacks Republican Leader
In the rally, Trump attacked his own party workers. He condemned Republican leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate for ending opposition to helping Democrats raise the US debt limit, a position that threatened economic catastrophe.
In his speech, Trump called the move a “terrible deal pushed by folding Mitch McConnell”. McConnell seemed sure to come under fire from the stage at the Iowa state fairgrounds in Des Moines on Saturday night.
