Donald Trump has suffered a serious setback in his bid to win the Republican nomination after finishing second in Iowa. Happily, the savvy billionaire businessman has wasted no time in coming up with a backup plan should his presidential dreams go down the pan.

Speaking after conceding defeat to Ted Cruz in the first caucus, Trump said he loved Iowa so much he was considering upping sticks there and splashing out on a farm:

‘In fact, I think I might come here and buy a farm.’

Still, the Republican hopeful might want to be more careful with his words from now on after a tweet sent by him in 2013 has resurfaced this morning. In the old message, the Iowa runner-up declares that ‘no one remembers who comes in second’.

If Trump fails to find his winning streak, at least he can look forward to a peaceful uninterrupted existence on the farm.
