WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Eric Trump made an impassioned appeal to caucusgoers in West Des Moines to support his father, former President Donald Trump, as news outlets called the 2024 Republican primary‘s opening nominating contest for him.
“I am here as a son today,” the younger Trump told a three-precinct combined caucus site Monday at the MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex. “As a family guy, he will never stop fighting. He’s the greatest man I’ve ever met. I’ve never met a person with more backbone. To me, personally, he’s been the greatest father in the world.”
