The liberal media is in an uproar once again after Donald Trump absolutely dominated the Iowa Caucuses Monday, leaving his competition in the dust. Trump snagged a whopping 51 percent of the vote, leaving Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley in the dust with 21 percent and 19 percent, respectively. It was a landslide victory for Trump, and it sent some liberal outlets into total meltdown mode. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow shared her academic concerns, warning that Trump’s primary victory is a sign of us heading towards authoritarianism.
As usual, the Left is recycling their tired old talking points about Trump’s success being linked to their wild theories about white supremacy and racism. You know the drill—according to them, only racists would vote for Trump. Jamie Dimon from JP Morgan called out the Left’s resurgence of these sentiments, pointing out that it’s not just city dwellers who are making a difference. In other words, Dimon was saying that Trump supporters are not extremists—after all, 75 million people voted for him in 2020. He argued for a return to a more sensible and respectful tone, all while making it clear that he’s a supporter of Nikki Haley.

Dimon spilled the beans on the secret behind Trump’s political success, and it’s not exactly rocket science. He emphasized that Trump was right about immigration, NATO, and growing the economy before the COVID mess came along. And let’s not forget that his tax bill was a hit (so much so that Democrats are hesitant to repeal most of it). Dimon didn’t always agree with how Trump framed these issues, but he admitted that Trump was largely right at their core.
He also pointed out that the Democrats have done a pretty effective job at driving a wedge between us with their “deplorables” rhetoric, sowing division and hatred. It remains to be seen if that tide will turn, since Wall Street big shots and bankers tend to shift their positions based on the political climate—just like Nikki Haley. But coming from someone who isn’t a die-hard MAGA supporter, this was a solid observation.
In conclusion, the liberal media and their allies are once again flustered by Trump’s triumph, attempting to paint his supporters as extremists and ignoring the very real reasons behind his victory. It’s time to tune out the noise and recognize that Trump’s win in Iowa is a testament to the real concerns and values of millions of Americans.
