Trump, at the National Republican Congressional Committee's annual spring dinner Tuesday night, said some people say noise from wind turbines causes cancer.

The result is that the wind farm will go ahead, and that Trump is liable for all legal bills.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed Grassley's characterization.

Last month in MI, the president said that wind power doesn't work because wind doesn't always blow. "It's an idiotic statement".

"Iowa is a great place to do business, in part due to the investment and infrastructure for renewable energy", said Matt Sexton, Community Development Regional Manager for Facebook, in a news release.

"And they say the noise causes cancer", he continued.

And White House strategic communications chief Mercedes Schlapp said she "didn't have an answer" as to whether turbines were linked to illness.

Senior Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa publicly rebuked President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated claim that wind turbines are linked to cancer, calling it "idiotic" to Iowa reporters on Wednesday.

"If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value", Trump said. The club must now reimburse the Scottish government for legal costs. "At the start of the day who would have guessed Trump claiming he was going to close the Mexican border to trade would only be the second stupidest thing he would say?"

At an October rally in Ohio, Trump also claimed that a downside of wind power was that electrical service stops when the breeze dies. The wind hasn't blown for three days.

The depth of Trump's antipathy for wind power, however, may extend beyond the limits of reason. This group of wind energy advocates came together to promote a boost the wind energy in Iowa.

"I thought it was a joke when someone asked me to comment on the president saying wind turbines caused cancer", the former Texas Democratic Congressman and presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke told a crowd in Iowa, according to various media reports.
