DES MOINES, Iowa — Former President and 2024 GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, will return to Iowa June 1st, according to a Trump campaign official.
He plans to speak at a meeting held by the Westside Conservative Club in Urbandale.
The club meets twice a month at a restaurant called Machine Shed and it's not unusual for them to host guest speakers. In fact during the 2023 legislative session Senate President Amy Sinclair and Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird spoke at the meetings.
Since then, Former Vice President Mike Pence and GOP presidential candidate Perry Johnson have been guest speakers.
Trump's last scheduled visit to Des Moines was postponed due to weather and his visit back to the Hawkeye state is different than his normal rallies that typically bring in thousands.
The more intimate gathering is what Iowans normally see from presidential candidates as they move across the state conducting town halls and meet and greets, ahead of Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Trump's visit back to the Hawkeye state comes after presidential candidate Ron DeSantis announced he will be kicking off his campaign in Iowa Tuesday, May 30th.
Trump's campaign officials said he will arrive in Des Moines Wednesday night, the same day DeSantis is wrapping up his stops in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Pella and Sioux City.
