After wins in South Carolina, Kansas and Montana, Trump's Republicans have now won all four special elections held since his inauguration in January, leaving Democrats demoralised as they seek to snatch control of Congress in next year's mid-term elections.

Trump has made several forays to states that he won over Democrat Hillary Clinton for political rallies reminiscent of his 2016 campaign.

Many said they came to the rally - some waiting five hours or more - to show their support for Trump and appreciation for what he's doing.

Struggling to advance his agenda in Washington, President Donald Trump traveled to the Midwest on Wednesday in search of his supporters' warm embrace and to celebrate a Republican congressional victory in an election viewed as an early referendum on his presidency.

Inaction on health care and any notable decline in the economy will hurt Trump's ability to improve his numbers with independents, with broad implications for the midterm elections next year, Shumaker said.

Trump added: "And I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don't want a poor person".

"That's not bad", Trump said at an event at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.

Trump began the Iowa speech by sending condolences and prayers to injured Sen.

"If we went and got the single greatest healthcare plan in the history of the world we would not get one Democrat vote because they're obstructionists", Trump said.

Less than a minute later, after bashing Democrats for their optimism about possibly winning in Georgia, Trump acknowledged that his comments were "making it hard to get their support, but who cares?" There they will tour the largest two-year agriculture program in the country, and Trump will give remarks.

"What the people appreciate about Trump is that he is willing to push back against the shrill, unhinged left", he said. Mark Warner, who are conducting a third, Senate investigation into Russian election meddling, which has featured blockbuster testimonies in recent weeks from fired FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others.

But the president said his Republican supporters came "out of the hills" to defeat the Democrats.

"If we continue to train our workers in these new technologies, then we will usher in a new era of prosperity for American agriculture and for the American farming family", Trump said.

Mr Trump also said he would pursue legislation that would bar immigrants to the U.S. from being eligible for welfare for at least five years - though most already are. "BIG LEAGUE", he said in an apparent reference to his slogan, "Make America Great Again".

The rally was initially supposed to take place on June 1, but was postponed due to "due to an unforeseen change in President Trump's schedule", the President's campaign team told ABC News at the time.
