The Republican Presidential Primary race kicks off on January 15 with the Iowa Caucus.
A strong performance in Iowa is a must for Ron DeSantis, Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, and Vivek Ramaswamy.
But now this Presidential candidate is trying to pull a fast one on Iowa voters.
Since 1972, more than half of Iowa caucus winners have gone on to win their Party’s nomination for the Presidency.
This makes Iowa the central focus for most Republican Presidential hopefuls every four years.
The overwhelming majority of GOP caucus goers in Iowa are evangelical Christians.
In fact, entrance polling showed evangelicals made up more than two-thirds of Republican caucus goers in 2016.
But evangelical Christians are more motivated than ever given the culture war raging in society.
”Concerned by the direction our nation is headed, evangelicals are certain to turn out in large numbers this election cycle,” The Hill reported. “There is no question that issues regarding gender ideology, religious freedom, and abortion will give them ample motivation to show up at the polls.”
Since evangelical voters dominate Iowa’s GOP caucus, virtually all Republican candidates are marketing themselves as a champion of conservative Christian values.
The sanctity of life is the top issue for most evangelical Christians in Iowa.
Of course, Donald Trump has touted his role in overturning Roe v. Wade by nominating three conservatives Justices to the Supreme Court.
But Iowa evangelicals were shocked and disappointed by Trump repeatedly stabbing Pro-Life voters in the back over the past several months.
In January, Trump blamed the Pro-Life movement for the GOP’s disappointing performance in the Midterm elections.
After Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, Donald Trump attacked it as “too harsh.”
“If you look at what DeSantis did, a lot of people don’t even know if he knew what he was doing,” Trump said. “But he signed six weeks, and many people within the pro-life movement feel that that was too harsh.”
Iowa also passed a ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, which Donald Trump calls a “terrible mistake.”
But after repeatedly attacking Ron DeSantis for being too Pro-Life and promising to work with Democrats and an abortion compromise, Donald Trump is trying to pull a fast one on Iowa voters.
Trump is now spending thousands of dollars running Pro-Life ads on social media in Iowa.
The ad features a video about Trump’s alleged Pro-Life views.
“President Donald J. Trump is THE MOST Pro-Life President in history,” the text above the video reads. “Nominated 3 Supreme Court Justices instrumental in overturning Roe v. Wade, Only President to ever attend the March for Life, Prevented U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding abortions overseas.”
In the video ad, the narrator begins with “for over 50 years, Republicans have promised to protect the sanctity of life, and while we waited, innocent, unborn children fell victim.”
But then the narrator says “one Republican President didn’t just make promises, he delivered.”
“Living up to his promise, Roe v. Wade was overturned,” the narrator continues. “Thousands of unborn children say, ‘Thank You.’”
The ad concludes with “President Trump, fighting every day for the culture of life and for those who can’t fight for themselves.”
Donald Trump is clearly feeling the heat for his pro-abortion position from Pro-Life evangelicals in Iowa.
Trump can try to convince Iowa voters and other Republicans across the country to believe that he is “Pro-Life.”
But the fact that Donald Trump called protecting unborn babies a “terrible mistake” tells Iowa evangelicals everything they need to know.
The reality is that Trump himself will help the extreme Left expand abortion.
He is parroting the same talking points that pro-abortion Republicans have hid behind for years while claiming to be Pro-Life.
Ron DeSantis is the most Pro-Life candidate on the GOP side.
He has remained solid on the issue of life – and refuses to let moderates or the GOP establishment pressure him otherwise.
