Donald Trump Wins Iowa Caucus, and Social Media Has Thoughts

President Donald Trump didn't face much opposition when it came time for the 2020 Iowa Republican caucuses on Monday. He was up against two inferior candidates, former Illinois. Rep. Joe Walsh and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld.

Trump secured 97 percent of the vote with Walsh and Weld bringing in 1.4 and 1.2 percent, respectively. All of the attention is placed on the much-more competitive Democratic race that features the likes of Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren among the 12 candidates.

With Trump coasting the win amid his impeachment trial, social media was very active between his supporters and detractors.

"Who is running against him? Are they really congratulating Trump on winning a one person rep. race? Unreal. What is this country coming to," one user wrote on Twitter.

Another wrote, "NO WAY! The only real republican won the republican caucus. Wow, must've taken a lot of analyzing and number crunching to get that."

Prior to the voting, Trump took to Twitter to encourage his supporters in Iowa to go out and vote.

He wrote, "Republicans in Iowa, go out and Caucus today," adding that "great times are coming" for the area's farmers, ranchers and manufacturers.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump won the state with 51.15 percent of the votes over Hillary Clinton and earning the six electoral votes.

Considering that and the lack of competition running against him, Trump's early-called win was a no-doubter.

Outside of the upcoming election and his impeachment trial, Trump found himself in some drama after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

The President sent out a tweet congratulating the victors, but in his since-deleted post, wrote the wrong state to which Kansas City hails from. In it, he wrote "Kansas" instead of Missouri where the Kansas City in question is located.

He corrected that first message by posting the same thing, this time with MIssouri in it, instead.
