Many GOP supporters immediately erupted in chants of “We want Trump” and “We love Trump,” with little regard for the presence of one of Trump’s competitors doing his best within hearing distance of them.

When the chanting began to drown out DeSantis’ “fair-side chat,” Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds attempted to calm the crowd down, telling them, “We’re in Iowa, and in Iowa, we’re Iowa nice,” according to The Hill. It’s not really DeSantis’ fault. Very few people in American history have been able to win over such devoted support as Trump. A simple Google search for the words “Trump Phenomenon” yields dozens, if not hundreds, of papers and studies into the remarkable effect this man has had on the majority of the nation.

The effect of this one man on our nation will be studied for generations to come. Shermichael Singleton, a political commentator on CNN, described it this way: “Many Republicans see themselves as pawns in an overall political game,” Singleton said. “It’s not just Democrats, it’s the Republican establishment that they dislike and distrust.” “And to that very salient point,” Singleton continued, “Donald Trump is the final arbiter against this entire political mechanism that is against them — these elites, these highly educated individuals telling them how they should live their lives, telling them what is best for them.” Republican Party is not built on one man. DeSantis has been and is a great governor. From COVID to education to immigration, he has worked for the good of his state with great results. The Republican party needs as many strong, principled leaders as we can get, and DeSantis is definitely one of them. He deserves our respect and the chance to speak. Even if he’s just not Donald Trump. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Deep State doesn’t understand the Trump phenomenon. The more they persecute him, the more determined his supporters will be.Best to leave him alone and focus on a positive message for the Democratic Party and nominate someone like #RFKJr https://t.co/yYw3w3NKul — S.L.
