Between the Family Leadership Summit, the Iowa Straw Poll, and the first RNC debate, these important events will inspire, motivate, and educate conservatives on the leading issues facing America. A midsummer event on July 18th will be a great opportunity for Iowans to hear directly from – and directly engage with – an extraordinary group of conservative leaders.”

Mr. Donald J. Trump, Chairman and President, The Trump Organization, sharing his message "Make America Great Again!"
Saturday, May 16th, 10:00 a.m. at Yockey Family Community Room, Olsen Student Center, Morningside College campus, 3609 Peters Ave., Sioux City, IA.
THIS FREE EVENT HAS LIMITED SEATING! FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE!
Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story, continually setting the standards of excellence while expanding his interests in real estate, sports and entertainment. He is a graduate of Wharton School of Finance. An accomplished author, Mr. Trump has authored over fifteen bestsellers, and his first book, The Art of the Deal, is considered a business classic and one of the most successful business books of all time. His net-worth is estimated at $6 Billion and his companies employ around 36,000 people.
Mr. Trump is the Emmy-nominated star and co-producer of the reality television series, “The Apprentice” which quickly became the number one show on television, making ratings history and receiving rave reviews and world wide attention. “The Celebrity Apprentice” has met with great success as well, being one of the highest rated show on television. The Apprentice’s fourteenth season premiered in January 2015. “You’re fired!” is listed as the third greatest television catchphrase of all time. In 2007, Mr. Trump received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and is among the highest paid public speakers in the world. Apprentice has raised over $15 million for charity.
Mr. Trump has over 7 million followers on social media. He frequently uses this platform to advocate for conservative causes, Republican candidates and to educate the public on the failures of the Obama administration. Mr. Trump appears on Fox and Friends on Monday mornings and devotes much of his time to media interviews in order to promote Free Market policies, the importance of a strong family, a culture of life, a strong military and our country’s sacred obligation to take care of our veterans and their families.
Mr. Trump has long been a devoted supporter of veteran causes. In 1995, the fiftieth anniversary of World War II, only 100 spectators watched New York City’s Veteran Day Parade. It was an insult to all veterans. Approached by Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the chief of New York City’s FBI office, Mr. Trump agreed to lead as Grand Marshall a second parade later that year. Mr. Trump made a $1 million matching donation to finance the Nation’s Day Parade.
On Saturday, November 11th, over 1.4 million watched as Mr. Trump marched down Fifth Avenue with more than 25,000 veterans. A month later Mr. Trump was honored in the Pentagon during a lunch with the Secretary of Defense and the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff.
In March 2015, Mr. Trump opened a Presidential Exploratory Committee to evaluate a presidential campaign.
