Flanked by Pizza Ranch co-founder Adrie Groeneweg, who formally endorsed Trump, the billionaire businessman was asked why he made the retail stop. "You know why, because I like the pizza," responded Trump.
Diane Beilstein of West Des Moines, a Caucus Precinct Captain for Trump, said Trump told the room of volunteers that he loves Iowa, they're going to win, and "Make America Great Again."
"He’s everything you can possibly imagine. I mean, he’s just, he’s dynamic. He’s really authentic. He’s honest," Beilstein told ABC News. "I mean, come on, and I love his hair."
The Trump campaign has been very secretive about its ground game in Iowa, not allowing press into its West Des Moines headquarters or to attend caucus meetings like the one today. The real question come caucus night is whether Trump supporters will bring the enthusiasm they display at rallies to Iowa caucus locations, as many of them have never caucused before.
"We have to get out," Trump told the roughly 50 volunteers. "We gotta win. Otherwise, you know what, otherwise we will have wasted our time, and the country’s gonna go bing, bing, bing, slowly. Not good."
Donald Trump is the first candidate Pizza Ranch co-founder Adrie Groeneweg has endorsed.
“I believe that he says what he’s gonna do and he might be a little bit out there, but I’m tired of the politicians," Groeneweg said.
