Trump Responds To Dem’s Disaster In Iowa, Son Says ‘Democrat Incompetence’ Is Greatest Threat To Elections

President Trump was quick to seize on the disastrous implosion of the Iowa Caucus and the implications it has for the Democrat Party going forward.

“It is not the fault of Iowa, it is the Do-Nothing Democrats fault. As long as I am President, Iowa will stay where it is. Important tradition!” Trump said in an initial tweet, referencing an idea to scrap Iowa’s historic position as the first primary.

“When will the Democrats start blaming RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, instead of their own incompetence for the voting disaster that just happened in the Great State of Iowa?” he asked in another tweet.

“The Democrat Party in Iowa really messed up, but the Republican Party did not,” Trump continued. “I had the largest re-election vote in the history of that great state, by far, beating President Obama’s previous record by a lot. Also, 97% Plus of the vote! Thank you Iowa!”

The president also retweeted several tweets concerning the Iowa Caucus:

Donald Trump Jr. was also quick to pile on criticism:

“Everyone’s really excited about the prospect of turning over our entire healthcare system do you guys… well done!” he said in one tweet.

“If the Democrats can’t run a #caucus that they had four years to prepare for, how the hell can anyone think they could actually run the country?” he asked in another tweet.

“Rigging ain’t easy,” he added in yet another.

Some people from the Democrats’ own party have weighed in on the controversy, including former 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson.

“America, something went wrong here tonight and it wasn’t just an app,” she said in a tweet just before 2 a.m. “If an app goes down, there are such things as telephones. Then a moderate candidate came out and made this weird victory speech, while [mainstream media] started talking about what a good night this was for Mike Bloomberg.”

The Washington Examiner adds:

As Williamson noted, the chaos in Iowa prompted some on cable news to claim that Michael Bloomberg was the winner, even though he did not participate in the caucuses. Bloomberg, 78, entered the race late and decided to focus on Super Tuesday rather than the early states. MSNBC’s Joy Reid said, “I think tonight was a great night for Mike Bloomberg. It was a great night for somebody who can argue competency at being able to run a big organization.”

It isn’t clear when results from the caucuses will be posted. Iowa Democrats have been ripped by many for the mishap, including President Trump, who called it an “unmitigated disaster.”

Williamson dropped out of the presidential primary after in January after failing to qualify for several debates.

NBC News host Chuck Todd even described the situation going on in Iowa as “a f*cking disaster,” during a hot-mic moment caught live on-air, as Twitchy reports.
