President Donald Trump plans to visit western this afternoon.  He starts his trip in Council Bluffs to tour and speak at Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy.  The company produces and sells ethanol.  The president will attend a GOP dinner in Des Moines.

On the weekend, more than a dozen of Biden's Democratic rivals were in Iowa for a party dinner.
