The Donald Trump Veterans event live stream online and televised Iowa rally coverage arrives on Thursday night opposite the latest of the Republican debates. Mr. Trump has opted to skip out of Fox News’ debate event moderated by his least favorite moderator so far, anchor Megyn Kelly. Instead, he’ll host his own event for the Wounded Warriors Project in an effort to raise funds for the United States veterans, while also making a political statement against Fox News. What will Trump have to say at his rally event? Here’s the latest on the Trump Iowa rally live streaming and televised coverage for tonight including how and when to watch the event.
According to CBS News in a Jan. 28 report, Trump will hold a competing event at the Drake University campus located in Des Moines, Iowa. That’s just three miles away from where the latest Republican debate will be held. Trump made the big announcement on Wednesday after many media outlets reported on his intentions to skip the GOP Debate moderated by Megyn Kelly Thursday evening. During a rally in South Carolina yesterday, Trump brought up his plans saying “You know what we’re going to do? We’re gonna raise a lot of money for the vets. That’s what we’re gonna do.” With that in mind, Fox News’ loss has become CNN and other media site’s gain. CNN plans to televise the event live and online, with other news sources such as CBS looking to also show it online.
This latest event for Donald Trump takes place four days before the first Iowa caucuses. They’re scheduled for Feb. 1 in Iowa and based on a new CNN/ORC Poll reported a few days ago, Trump has topped the 40 percent mark. More than 4-in-10 Republican voters nationwide have said they’d back the billionaire businessman when it came to their vote. His next closest competitor is senator Ted Cruz who had 19 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio had just eight percent, with former neurosurgeon Ben Carson getting six percent in the poll. That said, most of Trump’s biggest supporters don’t feel his skipping the debate in Iowa will hurt his chances of achieving candidacy for President of the United States. What will be most interesting to see is how much he wins the TV ratings war with viewers choosing between tonight’s events.
The Donald Trump Iowa rally for the Wounded Warriors Project has a scheduled start time of 9 p.m. ET on Thursday night. That will be directly opposite Fox News coverage of their GOP Debate on TV. Trump’s event can be seen on live television via CNN, which will also have pre-rally coverage at 8 p.m. ET. To watch the Trump rally live streaming online, cable and satellite viewers can use their CNN Go website or compatible mobile apps for live feeds straight from the Iowa event with CNN’s coverage. The CBSNews.com/live website also announced they will stream the event on their website, as well as on mobile devices and other devices including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Xbox One.
