2020 Republican presidential candidate Joe Walsh got an unexpected reaction when he wrapped up his speech in front of the audience he was speaking to during the Iowa caucuses on Monday evening.

Walsh contrasted himself to President Trump, saying that he will enact conservative policies as president and he will "be decent" while doing so. He also denounced the crowd for cheering Trump's tweets, which the crowd responded to by booing him.

Walsh, a former Illinois congressman, concluded by asking if they want "four more years of" Trump. Before he could finish, the crowd erupted into applause and cheers. When Walsh finished, the crowd booed him again.

Walsh and fellow contender former Gov. Bill Weld were crushed in the final results of the GOP caucuses, with Trump getting an overwhelming majority.

Walsh tweeted, "Clearly, I don’t belong in Trump’s Republican Party."

Because of Trump's major victory, Walsh compared him to a dictator and said, "Hell yes, the caucus was rigged."
