Speaking to a large crowd of supporters in Davenport, Iowa this week, 45th President Donald Trump made the case for why he is the only 2024 presidential candidate who can prevent World War 3.
“Standing before you today, I am the only candidate who can make this promise: I will prevent World War 3,” the former president declared. “Because I really believe you’re going to have World War 3.”

“And with education, almost in many ways easier than other things, we have to get back to common sense, and that is reading, writing, arithmetic. What they’re teaching in schools today is insane. And most people understand it, even the people that want it. They understand it. So we’re gonna do something,” said President Trump.

“Ron was a disciple of Paul Ryan,” said President Trump as his supporters booed Ryan’s name. “Who is a RINO loser who currently is currently destroying Fox and would constantly vote against entitlements. He would just vote against them,” said the former President.
President Trump said Ryan was largely responsible for Romney’s failed 2012 presidential run.
“Paul Ryan is a big reason that Mitt Romney, I’m not a big fan of Mitt Romney, lost his election. And to be honest with you, Ron reminds me a lot of Mitt Romney! So I don’t think you’re going to be doing so well here,” said President Trump.
