Saturday, during U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst's annual "Roast and Ride" event held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump continued his issues-based attacks on his Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton.
His message was simple: his campaign is about "big ideas" meant to help everyday Americans—"those who work hard but who don't have a voice"—as well as restoring honesty and accountability to government.
This year, the GOP is offering the voters a chance to break-up the corrupt establishment and to create a new American future.
This chance will never come again.
The Big Banks and Wall Street donors who want nothing to change are throwing millions and millions at my opponent. These are the same people who paid Bill and Hillary Clinton $150 million for speeches.
Hillary Clinton's campaign is all about protecting the powerful.
Our campaign is about protecting those who have no power.
Together, we are going to give working people a voice for the first time in a very, very long time.
Let's talk about what that means.
For our Veterans, it means a guarantee that they can seek medical care at either a VA facility or at a private medical doctor.
Never again will we allow a Veteran to die waiting for the care they need. We will protect those who protect us.
At the center of our change agenda is also a plan to fix our rigged economy.
The government just revised the growth numbers for last quarter down again—it's now only 1.1 percent. That's not just bad, it's catastrophic. We're going to Make America Grow Again.
That begins with supporting our family farms right here in Iowa.
Family farms are the backbone of this country. We are going to end the EPA intrusion into your family homes and your family farms.
We are going to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard, eliminate job-killing regulations like the Waters of the U.S. rule, and provide desperately-needed tax relief.
Almost 97% of farms in this country are family-owned and family-managed. It's not only a great American tradition, but a vital component of America's economic and national security.
Yet, Hillary Clinton wants to shut down family farms just like she wants to shut down the mines and the steelworkers. She will do this not only through radical regulation, but also by raising taxes on family farms—and all businesses—to rates as high as nearly 50 percent. Adding to the pain, she will tax family farms again at death by as much as 45 percent.
On top of that, her anti-energy agenda will drive up the cost of energy—another attack on agriculture.
We are going to end this war on the American farmer.
That includes our plan to lower the tax rate on family farms down to 15 percent, and to stop the double-taxation of family farms at death—helping to ensure that the family farm tradition in Iowa continues to thrive and flourish.
My economic agenda can be summed up in three words: jobs, jobs, jobs.
I am asking for the support of all Americans who want more opportunity, higher wages, safe communities, competent leadership and honest government.
We are going to send the special interests packing, and we are going to once again have a government of, by and for the people.
