Former President Donald Trump is holding a rally in Iowa on Saturday – his first stop in the competitive central plains state since last year’s election.

Iowa is also the state whose presidential nomination calendar has been put on hold for the past half century, and Trump’s halt is fueling further speculation that he will run another White House in 2024.

Iowa was once a major battleground state, but Trump comfortably won his 2016 election as president and his 2020 defeat.
