Former President Donald Trump’s divisive campaign style was evident at the Iowa-Iowa State football game, with social media flooded with videos of the boos and catcalls he received during his visit. A photo of an Iowa State fan flipping off the former president with his middle fingers gained traction, with the organization Republicans Against Trump stating that Trump speaks for all of us.
Other Republican primary candidates, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, also attended the game but did not receive the same attention.

From ‘Where’s Melania?’ jabs to pro-Trump cheers
Trump faced criticism from the air, with a prop plane carrying a banner stating “Where’s Melania?”, referencing the missing former first lady. However, Trump and his allies celebrated the positive response from his football-loving supporters, who chanted “U-S-A! U-S-A!” This is not unusual for politicians to get booed at sporting events, as seen with Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential campaign. The Iowa Hawkeyes defeated the Iowa State Cyclones 20-13 in a football game in Ames.
