Donald Trump used a trip to Iowa Saturday night to turn one of President Joe Biden’s favorite electoral arguments on its head, insisting the current occupant of the White House poses the greatest threat to democracy and must be ousted in the 2024 election.

Alluding to Biden’s red wall speech and other attacks on MAGA nation, Trump said the 46th president’s embrace of censorship and weaponized federal agencies threaten the core of America’s constitutional republic.

45th president assails Democrats: “They're the wreckers of the American dream.”

Trump used his favorite nicknames to mock his two closest opponents for the GOP nomination — Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis — and to criticize Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds for backing DeSantis.

But he spent the lion share of his speech trained on Biden and Democrats in the general election.

"They're the wreckers of the American dream. The American dream is dead with them in office. It's sad. We had such a dream,” Trump said, contrasting the state of America under his leadership compared to Biden.

Trump promised to "bring back the American dream bigger and better than ever."

"For decades you watched as a corrupt political class in our nation's capital looted your money, trampled on your dignity, and push their radical agenda into every aspect of your lives," he said. "You know it very well.

"But in 2016 you voted to stand up to those liars, losers, crooks, and creeps and you elected an outsider as your president, and it was about America first. We want to put our country first. They haven't done that in a long time. But we did it for four years, and that's why we did so well. That's why it was one of the great presidencies, they say,” he added.
