President Trump made bizarre attacks against progressive Democrats' Green New Deal at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa on Jan. 30.
"During this campaign season, the good people of Iowa have had a front-row seat to the lunacy and the madness of the totally sick left," Trump told the crowd in Des Moines.
"The Green New Deal, which would crush our farms, destroy our wonderful cows. They want to kill our cows. You know why, right? You know why?"
"Don't say it. They want to kill our cows. That means you're next," he said.

The problem with his warning is that cattle are, in fact, raised to be killed or milked, as one person on Twitter pointed out.
"Don’t you already kill your cows for food?"

We’re going to kill the cows. And turn them into steak. Then we’re gonna season and grill them up real nice. THEN we’ll kill some corn. https://t.co/xK0Y3H7Aig— authentic foxxi (@foxxi_loxxi) January 31, 2020
