I wish I lived in Iowa for this one.
It’s a great gesture by the GOP front-runner, and I would be crazy if I didn’t think this was trying to score points with Iowans but guess what, other candidates could have done the same thing, but maybe their donors didn’t think it was a great idea.
Either way, this great movie needs to be seen, and if Trump is footing the bill, I am sure it will seem a lot better that it’s free to those available to attend.

From The Des Moines Register:
Donald Trump has rented space at an Urbandale movie theater and will give Iowans free tickets to a showing of the Benghazi movie that critics of Hillary Clinton have been eagerly awaiting.
“Mr. Trump would like all Americans to know the truth about what happened at Benghazi,” the GOP presidential candidate’s Iowa co-chair Tana Goertz said Thursday night.
Trump will pay for the showing of “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” at 6 p.m. Friday at the Carmike Cobblestone 9 Theatre at 86th Street and Hickman Road, Goertz said.
“The theater is paid for. The tickets are paid for. You just have to RSVP,” she said.
The movie depicts the terrorist raid on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012. It reportedly makes no mention of Clinton, then the U.S. Secretary of State, but has again raised the topic of the Democratic presidential candidate’s role in the tragedy, three months after Republicans grilled her on her response to the attacks during an 11-hour congressional hearing in October.
Please watch this movie wherever you are and make it #1. The media won’t give it a lot of press so, please share the movie on your social media timelines to alert friends and family it’s playing.
