Trump loses in Iowa - level 2
The Republican and Democratic parties in the USA are choosing their presidential candidates. The Republicans must choose between Donald Trump, a real estate billionaire, and Ted Cruz, a Texas senator. The Democrats must choose between Hillary Clinton, a senator from New York, and Bernie Sanders, a senator from Vermont.
There was a caucus in Iowa, which is a state in the American Midwest. People thought that the Republicans would choose Trump, but the party members chose Ted Cruz.
Donald Trump and his supporters, however, stayed optimistic. Another caucus will be in New Hampshire, a small New England state.
Difficult words: real estate (the property of lands and buildings), caucus (a meeting of a political party which chooses a candidate), supporter (a person who supports – agrees and/or helps somebody).
