Iowa's junior senator, Joni Ernst, said Wednesday that while she would "love to rub a little Iowa nice off" on President Donald Trump, his leadership style is different from hers and if he changed it, he may not get as much attention from the media.

Ernst, a Republican seeking a second term, said she "would respond very differently" than Trump, but "he leads is a very different way" when asked about the president's recent tweets about unfounded conspiracy theories about MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough and controversial retweets he made attacking prominent female politicians, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, over their appearances.
