Heavy asked people at the “Make America Great Again” rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa how they thought Donald Trump was doing as president.
The rally was held at the U.S. Cellular Center on Wednesday, and the majority in attendance praised the president’s efforts, but also had some suggestions.
There were some Iowa based groups protesting the rally inside and outside of the arena like Indivisible Iowa and Progress Iowa, along with national organizations like Planned Parenthood and Women’s March.
Earlier on Wednesday Trump visited Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids to discuss advancements in high-tech agriculture. The president was joined by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to tour college’s agriculture program. Kirkwood Community College is the largest two-year agriculture program in the country, so the president and two secretaries reviewed the college’s high-tech equipment and discussed technological and management practices when it comes to farming.
Visiting Kirkwood Community College was one of the events the White House arranged to mark “technology week.”
This is Trump’s first trip to Iowa as president and the second for Perdue as the head of the USDA. Last month Perdue went to Boone, Iowa delivering his first major farm policy address as Agriculture Secretary.
