Trump Event Moved To Sioux Center Events Center

Sioux Center, Iowa — Dordt University and the Trump campaign could not agree, so President Trump’s Sioux Center appearance has been moved.

According to Dordt officials, the Commit to Caucus Rally for Donald J. Trump has been rescheduled for the Terrace View Event Center in Sioux Center on January 5, 2024.

They tell us that during each campaign cycle, Dordt University invites every presidential candidate in good standing with their political party (be it Republican, Independent, or Democrat) to have equal access to campus. Dordt says they maintain a neutral stance on political candidates and issues.

The Dordt officials say the events are intended to be educational in nature, including questions directly from Dordt students to the candidates. They say the Trump campaign started the process of lining up a campaign stop but desired a rally format. Dordt understood that President Trump’s visit would not be publicized until the format was finalized after the new year. Ultimately, according to Dordt officials, the vision of the Trump campaign and Dordt were incongruent, and the event will not take place at the university.
