Lara Trump told Tennesseans Tuesday that voters must reelect her father-in-law President Donald Trump by a significant margin come November — so that his political opponents have no room to deny the results of the upcoming election.
Lara, who is married to one of the president’s sons, Eric, said this during a tele-town hall with Bill Hagerty. Hagerty is running to replace the retiring U.S. Lamar Alexander (R-TN).
During the call, Hagerty asked Lara to comment on what he described as “the dramatically unfair treatment that Trump, his family and Republicans get in the media and how that will factor into the 2020 election?”
Lara said Americans “are woke right now.”
“People see what’s going on. They see how the mainstream media consistently misconstrues things that Donald Trump says. They go out of their way to attack him. They make up stories. That has happened to all of us in our family. You think to yourself that it can’t be that bad. They don’t actually do these things. But, yes, they actually do these things,” Lara told Hagerty.
“If the mainstream media covered Donald Trump fairly then they would lose a lot of money. People would stop tuning in. They are constantly looking for new ways to hit this president because it puts money in their pockets, and that is absolutely disgusting,” she said. “The press in this country is supposed to fairly and accurately give the facts to help the people make up their own minds, and, in fact, they do the opposite. They try to implement their opinion and twist things so that it fits their narrative and it’s absolutely disgusting.”
And, as Lara went on to say, her father-in-law’s election in 2016 made more Americans wise to the ways of the mainstream press.
“Without that victory, people would not have known just how bad it is in the press,” she said.
