Trump’s campaign said that the 45th President is going to keep Saturday’s speech focused on Iowa farmers and the end of Title 42, saying that letting it expire is “a total disaster for the country.”
DeSantis will headline Iowa Republican U.S. Rep. Randy Fennstra’s annual fundraiser in Sioux Center on Saturday and later host a reception and lead a conversation with GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufmann at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center in Cedar Rapids.
