DesmoinesRegister – Iowa’s U.S. senators were met Tuesday with overflow crowds who pointedly questioned them about President Donald Trump’s actions during his first month in office and other issues.
Although Republican Sens. Charles Grassley and Joni Ernst held meetings in small towns in northern and eastern Iowa, they drew big crowds. Considering that Trump carried Iowa by nearly 10 percentage points, the meetings were a noteworthy indication of the president’s opposition in the state.
“I’m so unsettled. It feels like we have a juvenile running our country,” a man told Grassley before asking if he would vote to impeach Trump.
Grassley, a seven-term senator, deflected the spirit of the question. Later, though, Grassley faced similar questions about whether he supported a joint House and Senate committee to investigate whether Trump and his campaign had communications with the Russian government before the election.
