And from Trump:

  • The POTUS had his own harsh words for Biden while speaking at a renewable energy event, referring to him as "Sleepy Joe" and accusing him of talking too much about Trump: "He said my name so many times that people couldn’t stand it anymore."
  • He had also slammed Biden as he left for Iowa, calling him a "loser" and a "dummy" who is "weak mentally," per Fox News.
  • Trump signed an executive order while in the state to, as he said, "speed up reviews of [agricultural] biotechnology so that farmers can get access to critical scientific advances faster and reap the full benefits of American innovation for many years into the future."
  • Still to come Tuesday night for Trump: an "America First Dinner," for which tickets started at $250, to raise money for the Iowa Republican Party.
