Every time Donald Trump has a campaign rally, we can be sure that, somehow, the speech will reveal interesting things. Not about any political agenda though. But about the 45th President himself.

In September already, during rallies, Trump said that he had won in 2016 beating Barack Obama and he warned about the fact that Biden was leading the world into World War II. More recently, at the end of September, Trump confused different members of the Bush family.
On 1 October, Trump held another rally in which the president seemed to let thoughts of death take over.
Donald Trump’s speech
The rally which took place in Iowa was supposed to be a simple campaign stop. As usual, Donald Trump attacked his opponents and painted himself as a savior.
Independent reports that Trump said that farmers in Iowa, many present at the rally, had been ‘coming up to him sobbing’ as well as ‘praise and thank him’. In the same speech, Trump also accused Biden of ‘weaponizing’ the police so that he could arrest his opponents on ‘fake and phony charges’.
Then, Trump got onto the topic of electric cars and vehicles. And that’s when things took a dark turn.
This is Donald Trump would like to die
In his speech, Trump continued to accuse Biden of several things, one of them was forcing Americans to buy electric vehicles. It seems that Trump is against that. In his speech, Trump specifically targeted eclectic boats.
Let’s get in our new electric vehicle. Thirty minutes later you’re looking for a recharge
The problem is their batteries are so heavy that the boats can’t carry them. They would sink
Projecting himself into the situation, Trump continued:
But if I’m sitting down and that boat’s going down and am on top of the battery and the water starts swelling in, am getting concerned. Then I look 10 yards to my left and I see a shark over there
So I have a choice of electrocution or shark. You know what I’m going to take? Electrocution. I will take electrocution every single time
Trump against sharks
Now this is not a sentence we thought we were ever going to write but: it is not the first time Trump goes against sharks.
During a rally in 2020 Trump got distracted by a mosquito and said that he wanted to kill the insect. While this is a very normal reaction to a mosquito, Trump then went on to talk about animal cruelty. He said:
They’ll say it’s cruelty to animals.
And then, somehow, Trump got onto sharks:
They were saying the other night, the shark. They were saying, ‘Sharks, we have to protect them.’....I’m not a big fan of sharks,
I have people calling me up: ‘Sir, we wanted to – we have a fund to save the shark. It’s called save the shark.’ I say ‘No, thank you. I have other things I can contribute to.
In 2016, Stormy Daniels also revealed that Trump hates sharks and wouldn’t mind if they all disappeared.
