Bolstered by Karen Handel's decisive victory over Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff the day before, President Trump channeled Campaign Trump and spoke to an enthusiastic Cedar Rapids, Iowa crowd on Wednesday evening.

Struggling to advance his agenda in Washington, President Donald Trump traveled to the Midwest for a raucous rally with his loyal supporters - the kind of event he relished before winning the White House.

Speaking at a rally in Iowa, the President declared: "Somebody said why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy?"

"We've had a very good relationship with China", President Trump said, "and I do like President Xi".

He addressed the wealth of his advisors, saying he did not want "poor people" in those positions. "They're obstructionists", he said to applause. "That means we basically can't lose anybody", the President said of the 52-48 Senate edge.

On Wednesday, Trump's attitude was different.

The official said that Trump is aiming for a "total rewrite of our immigration system" that would produce a "merit-based system for entry".

He doesn't like poor people.

While Trump seemed excited over the plan, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act already makes it illegal for immigrants to have access to welfare benefits during their first five years in the United States. Trump rambled about their great business minds, but more importantly, about how rich they are.

Trump saluted former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, who was recently sworn in as the US ambassador to China and traveled with Trump to Iowa on Air Force One. Add some money to it!' He hailed Branstad, the longest-serving governor in the nation's history and an early Trump backer, as "a legend" and "one great man".

While Republicans have scored a string of victories, the Georgia election was the party's first major test of voter sentiment since Trump won in November.

As regular readers may recall, during the Republican presidential primaries, one of Trump's most common attacks against Sen. "We can't have the world taking advantage of us anymore".

Trump picked billionaire Wilbur Ross, who made a fortune buying up distressed companies, as commerce secretary and appointed Todd Ricketts, a member of the billionaire family that owns the Chicago Cubs, as his deputy.

President Donald Trump has offered a simple explanation for his wealthy Cabinet choices: Rich people know how to manage money better than poor people do.
