A Christian university in Iowa has pulled a fast one on former President Trump.
Dordt University has canceled a Trump rally that was scheduled to be held next week at Sioux Center. The cancellation comes just 10 days before the Iowa caucus.
State Rep. Jeff Taylor is a faculty member at the school and he confirmed to television station KELO that the decision not to host Trump was made by university administrators.
“Iowa state representative and Dordt faculty member Dr. Jeff Taylor confirmed that he had been working as a liaison between the university and the Trump campaign. Taylor said the decision to not host the Trump event was made last Friday by Dordt administrators,” the television station reported.
The university also confirmed to me that Trump will no longer appear on campus.

“The Trump campaign started the process of lining up a campaign stop but desired a rally format. Dordt understood that President Trump’s visit would not be publicized until the format was finalized after the new year,” they wrote in a prepared statement. “Ultimately, the vision of the Trump campaign and Dordt were incongruent, and the event will not take place at the university.”
How could they possibly not know that all Trump does is host rallies? Did they expect him to host a small coffee klatch in the faculty lounge? What nonsense!
What’s peculiar is that Dordt has hosted previous events featuring Nikki Haley, Gov. Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy.
The Iowa Standard reports the school has a history of anti-Trump activism. They named certain staffers who they say turned the traditionally conservative college into an ultra-liberal school.
One professor even said Trump is morally unfit to be president.
According to the university website, Dordt is associated with the Christian Reformed Church. Not exactly very Christlike to extend the right hand of fellowship and then smack Trump in the back of the head.
“Trump will get something else scheduled,” one of my listeners said. “Survive and thrive is what he does. This won’t bring him down.”
