So I'm wondering what do these young people think that Trump will do for them? perhaps they're not going to vote at all?

Trump is a spoiled brat who throws tantrums when he doesn't get his way. both Trump and Biden are too old to be president. they're both being used so that each party feels like they have a chance at the office of the president. isn't that funny they call it the office of the president hmmm

I think the Republicans in Iowa, who are in Cult Trump are setting the scene so that when Trump loses in 2024 they can say 'See, it was fraud because he was the winner everywhere else."
