Ray Harrington, an Iowa National Guard veteran and self-described moderate Republican who served in Afghanistan, chats with volunteer Helen Warner at the Veteran's Freedom Center in Dubuque, Iowa, on Jan. 9, 2020. Harrington says he is torn about President Donald Trump's recent dealings with Iran.

DUBUQUE, Iowa – Almost exactly four years ago, Donald Trump touched down at an airport hangar here, delivered a donation to a group that provides service dogs to veterans and, before inviting a few kids to run around on his Boeing 757, criticized the wars in the Middle East that many local families had sent their sons and daughters to fight in.

"I'm the guy that didn't want to go to war," he told a crowd of several hundred. "It's just unjust; it's a mess," Trump went on, promising that if he ever did deploy the military anywhere, it would be "so strong, so powerful that nobody is going to mess with us anymore."
