Life-Threatening Iowa Blizzard Causes Trump, Other Candidates to Revise Schedules


In-person events are expected to resume Sunday, but most were canceled on Friday and Saturday, ahead of Monday’s pivotal Caucus Night.

DES MOINES, Iowa–With almost a foot of snow already on the ground in Iowa, another wintry blast walloped the Hawkeye State with whipping winds and additional snowfall.

The National Weather Service warned about “life-threatening blizzard conditions at least into early Saturday,” prompting former President Donald Trump’s campaign to announce “an adjusted schedule” to keep everyone safe.

Although some in-person events are to resume starting on Sunday, a number of “telerallies” featuring the former president are now planned to be held along with “messages across social media and good, old-fashioned telephones to keep Iowa caucus-goers excited” in advance of Monday’s Caucus Night, his campaign said in a news release.

On Friday, U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake of Arizona had been scheduled to stump for President Trump, but that event was canceled. Two other presidential hopefuls, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, also announced they were removing events from their schedules on Friday. In contrast, Ohio businessman Vivek Ramaswamy said he was going “full steam” with his schedule as planned.

Instead of appearing in two Iowa cities on Saturday—Atlantic and Sioux City—President Trump will participate in a telerally at 7 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) that night with Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird, his campaign said.
