Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) recently attended the Iowa State Fair with former President Donald Trump, where he told attendees that it is only through “force” that change will come in “corrupt” Washington, D.C.
Republican candidates made their way through the Iowa State Fair — an obligatory stop for presidential hopefuls – as they made their case to potential Iowan voters.
As Trump introduced several politicians that traveled with him to Iowa, Gaetz joined the festivities and shared a couple of words as he stumped for Trump at the fair.
Gaetz said that although he and other supporters of the “Make America Great Again” movement were “having a great time” at the Iowa state fair, “we know that only through force do we make any change in a corrupt town like Washington, D.C.”

“Mr. President, I cannot stand these people that are destroying our country. They are opening our borders. They are weaponizing our federal law enforcement against patriotic Americans who love this nation as we should,” Gaetz began.
“We are having a great time at the fair. We love standing with you. But we know that only through force do we make any change in a corrupt town like Washington, DC.,” he added.
“And so, to all my friends here in Iowa, when you see them come for this man there, know that they are coming for our movement, and they are coming for all of us. And as hard as you see him work, I need you working ten times harder, a hundred times harder. We’re going to win Iowa, we’re going to march to the nomination, and we’re going to save the greatest country…” he continued.
