1. Trump is in Iowa. @JoeBiden likely planned his trip to be there at the same time knowing that would bait Trump into giving Joe the news cycle. Trump's first stop was at an ethanol plant. I make his crowd as less than 300. Trump in Iowa at Ethenol plant crown view as he leaves.  IMO less than 300. He likely had more in his security detail.
2. Trump about to arrive at Iowa GOP dinner. He stayed clear of the @IowaSoybeans folks he's destroying with tariffs but in a few minutes we will see how the Iowa state @GOP, whose major constituency has been economically harmed by Trump tariff policy, welcomes the #OrangeMenace.
3. Love to have somebody doing still photography there. I miss the @AP.
4. I've seen nothing on Trump at the Iowa GOP dinner in Des Moines. The Fox News @YouTube feed that was set to broadcast was removed from the system. I'm betting there's a story there. @maddow @Lawrence @MaddowBlog
5. Finally found @Youube feed. Odd. This is how entire feed looked. You can hear a small amount of applauding at times but it's like he's in a remote location. My guess is fundraiser was not well attended.

Fundraiser sans people? Great way to prepare to kick off a campaign. 😬 Trump at Iowa fundraiser
6. I normally don't bother but I'm listening to Des Moines air traffic control. Trump is holding all the flights up with a long ramp freeze. I can hear one plane running low on fuel. They are working on diverting it.
7. The ATC is using the N numbers and not the usual call signs of the carrier and the flight no. Any pilots out there seen that before?
8. I think Trump is going to lose the pilots union. There is a pilot telling them he has six minutes of fuel.
9. That plane is having to divert. Pilot is angry.
10. AF-1 is cleared but I don't think that plane is going to be able to land in time.
11. The pilot just declared an emergency because of the #OrangeMenance.
12. Just told AF-1 to hustle that they have an aircraft declaring an emergency. Didn't hear the response but the controller said thank you.
13. Radio is breaking up but I think the controller apologized to the pilot who I think said he was not told about the ramp freeze. IMO @FAANews needs to investigate this.
14. I always like to put things in context. Here is @BarackObama in Iowa in June 2011 at the same point in his presidency as @realDonaldTrump today.

15. I wonder how the #folks working at the #Iowa @Alcoa #aluminum plant feel about the #Russian mob building an aluminum plant in #Kentucky as a bribe for @senatemajldr #McConnell? Somebody should ask @SenJoniErnst how she feels. @SenateGOP @TheDemocrats #2020
