Trump Visit to Iowa State Frat House Goes Viral

Viral videos showed ISU students erupting in cheers as Trump greeted them at a fraternity house.

AMES, IOWA — Videos of former President Donald Trump dropping by a fraternity house at Iowa State University (ISU) went viral over the weekend.

The 16-second clip shows Trump entering a room to the sound of enthusiastic cheers and applause from dozens of Alpha Gamma Rho frat bros.

Conservative pundit Benny Johnson's tweet sharing the video racked up more than 4.6 million views.

Other videos that made the rounds on social media showed Trump greeting scores of other adoring Iowa State students outside the Alpha Gamma Rho house.

“This is some turnout. I guess the youth likes Trump,” Trump told Right Side Broadcasting Network.

Moments before addressing the crowd, a reporter for the conservative outlet asked a female student: “If you had to ask President Trump one question, what would it be?”

“If he would take a picture with me,” she responded. “That’s my only question. Hope he says yes.”

Trump also picked up footballs sitting on a beer pong table and threw them into the crowd.

After leaving the fraternity house Trump took a motorcade to ISU’s Jack Trice Stadium, where he attended the Cyclones’ annual showdown with the school’s in-state rival University of Iowa Hawkeyes.
