Swing State Voters Are Furious With Trump Over His Iran Tactic, Could Cost Him Election


Donald Trump was successful in winning swing state votes during his 2016 presidential run after pledging to end America’s “forever wars.” But now that he has increased his hostility toward Iran, some swing voters in Iowa are getting nervous.

The New York Times’ Jeremy Peters spoke with several Iowa swing voters to get their opinion on Trump’s hawkish stance against Iran and the assassination of General Qassem Suleimani.

“He’s putting those kids in harm’s way,” Mark Blume, an Iowa resident who has voted for both Republicans and Democrats, told Peters. “What he says and what he does are two different things, and that’s what I don’t like about him.”

“I get concerned,” said Ray Harrington, a veteran of the Iowa National Guard and a self-described moderate Republican. “My son’s 18. He’s draft age.”

Peters also talked to voters from North Carolina.

One voter, Allen Chesser, said he was ashamed that the GOP fell into line behind Trump after Suleimani’s killing. Chesser also noted that he has been getting attacked by Trump supporters for just simply criticizing the president.

“Because I disagree I’m somehow anti-Trump, which somehow makes me anti-Republican and lessens my patriotism?” he told Peters. “I don’t get it.”
