Walsh Asks Iowa If They Want “Four More Years,” Watch Incredible Response

Four more years of prosperity, safety, joy, and winning…? It's a no-brainer.

Ha! (Source: Twitter Screenshot Alex Plitsas )

Last night, the GOP caucus in Iowa had no problem reporting the results and it was overwhelming. President Trump got 97 percent of the vote.

But, it seems as if some people who despise the man who’s single-handedly brought back American greatness, still don’t get it. Former GOP Illinois Representative Joe Walsh, running against the president, tried to fire up some of the Iowa caucus crowd by asking them if they wanted “four more years,” and the response is a must see.

The Daily Caller reported:

Walsh and former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld were at Northview Middle School in Ankeny, IA on Monday to make their case against President Donald Trump in the GOP primary. It soon became clear, however, that the crowd was all-in for another candidate.

Daily Caller opinion columnist Alex Plitsas captured several clips of the action and posted them to Twitter.

After Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara, made her case for the president to warm applause, Weld took the stage to “jeers and boos.”

Next up is @GovBillWeld who is initially met with a few jeers and boos. The crowd then goes silent as someone calls for the crowd to “not be like that.” #IACaucus #Election2020 pic.twitter.com/agSHSwPTv0

.@GovBillWeld delivers a very technical policy focused speech about his beliefs and his record of success in Massachusetts. He attempts to differentiate himself from the President on free trade and as a rational actor that allies can count on. #IACaucus #Election2020

.@GovBillWeld finishes his speech after acknowledging that in his opinion, @realDonaldTrump was the best candidate in 2016 who is “different” (which drew laughs from the crowd). He doesn’t attack the President and is given a round of applause.

Then, it was Walsh’s turn:

When the former Illinois one-term congressman, who once supported the president before turning on him and deciding to launch his own primary bid, “scolded” the crowd for voting for Trump, he was “met with boos,” Plitsas reported.

Someone in the crowd yelled “yes” and several applauded when Walsh asked if they wanted “four more years of the Donald Trump show.”

“Last thing I’ll say, if you want four more years of a president who wakes up every morning and makes every day about himself, then vote for Donald Trump,” Walsh said before the crowd jeered and booed again.

Neither Walsh nor Weld won any supporters:
