We’re not aware of any safety warnings for either event. But cities that hosted Trump rallies prior to the 2016 election saw an average of 2.3 more assaults reported on the day of the event compared to a typical day, according to a 2018 study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania.
Details: Planned Parenthood, which secured their event at the 445-acre fairgrounds first, will be holding their book sale on its southwest side, at the 4-H building.
The specific location of the Trump rally hasn’t been announced. Eric Branstad, a senior advisor for Trump’s Save America PAC, told Axios Wednesday that he believes the event will be on the fairgrounds’ far north side.
What they’re saying: Save America officials were not aware of the reproductive health care nonprofit’s event prior to scheduling the rally, and they don’t believe it’ll be a problem, Branstad said.
Organizers for both events are working with Iowa State Fair police for security, while Trump’s rally will also have Secret Service, fair spokesperson Mindy Williamson said.
