Donald Trump Jr. is in Iowa today, hoping to convince millennials to vote for his father.
He spoke this morning to around 100 people at Iowa State University. Later, at a bar across from the University of Northern Iowa campus in Cedar Falls, he told the 50 people there, why he thinks his father’s campaign has been so successful.
“Those other politicians, they’re talking at you,” he said. “My father is having a conversation with the people of this country, the people he’s fighting for. That’s why he’s able to relate so easily even though he comes from such a different world than his supporters.”
Trump said what he called “elite politicians” have made promises in the past that have burdened young people.
“When you’re up against the political elite, on both sides, you’re probably doing something right because that means you’re fighting for the American people because the guys I’m talking about the elites, especially the Hollywood elite they’ve gotten rich off of hard working Americans. Those hard working Americans have not had a voice in generations,” he said.
The oldest of the Trump children also says his father relates to people in all walks of life in spite of coming from such a different world than his supporters.
Trump’s rallies were just two of several presidential campaign events in Iowa this week.
On the Democratic side, Former President Bill Clinton will hold get-out-the-vote rallies for Hillary Clinton’s campaign tomorrow in Sioux City, Waterloo, and Des Moines. Vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine will join the former president in Des Moines after making a solo visit to Dubuque.
Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will campaign at a farm in Warren County Thursday.
