Former President Donald Trump returned to Iowa over the weekend to deliver a rousing campaign-like speech to supporters as he vowed he would “take America back” from Joe Biden. Speaking at the State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Mr Trump slammed Mr Biden’s trillion-dollar infrastructure bill and his “botched” withdrawal from Afghanistan, adding “General Patton” would not make such a mistake. Fan roared as he delivered the speech as the business tycoon repeatedly hinted he may run for election again in 2024.
In his speech, Mr Trump told a supportive crowd: “As I said before, the truth is a force of nature, it’s going to come out, it’s all coming out.
“Hang in there, everything the extreme left touches throughout history it leads to misery and destruction and failure.
“But with all of you in Iowa and conservative patriots all across the country, we will end their reign of radicalism and we will take back America…”
Crowds roared at the speech as Mr Trump went on the offensive against the Democrats.
He continued: “Do you think General George Patton would have left early out of Afghanistan?
“Do you think he would have left dead soldiers for no reason whatsoever, and do you think he would have left $85billion dollars with the best equipment anywhere in the world?”
Mr Trump claimed China and Russia now had access to US armaments and were learning how they work to combat them if necessary.
The Republican also claimed much of the equipment left behind in Afghanistan was now on the black market.

The nearly two-hour speech also addressed Trump’s victory in Iowa which saw him beat Mr Biden 53 to 45 percent.
According to a Mediacom Iowa poll, 53 percent of Iowans said they view Trump favourably, compared to his 48 percent rating when he was in the White House.
Mr Biden on the other hand, has a 37 percent favourable rating in the poll and a 61 percent unfavourable rating.
Mr Trump continues to argue – without foundation – that there was foul play involved in his election and told Iowa to get out and vote in the 2022 midterms.

A new poll, conducted by Quinnipiac, showed just 38 percent of voters now approve of Mr Biden, a far cry from the 56 percent he took office with.
The poll showed 53 percent disapprove of the President, which increases when divided by voter loyalty.
Just 32 percent of independents approve of Biden while 60 percent disapprove; four percent of Republicans approve, while 94 percent disapprove; and 80 percent of Democrats approve of the President’s job overall and 10 percent disapprove.
Among independents – seen as an important gauge without loyalty to either of the two main parties – Mr Biden is now as unpopular as Mr Trump was at the same stage in his presidency.
