President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump knocked on doors in Florida on Tuesday for Laura Loomer, the bigoted conspiracy theorist who baffled even GOP members by winning the Republican primary for Florida’s 21st Congressional District.
The anti-Muslim extremist with a penchant for throwing the white power “OK” hand sign made headlines in 2017 when she celebrated the deaths of thousands of migrants.
When it was reported that 2,000 migrants had died while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea from Africa to Europe, Loomer rejoiced. “Good,” she tweeted. “Here’s to 2,000 more.”
Loomer has also made headlines for chaining herself to Twitter’s front door while wearing a yellow Star of David, spreading conspiracy theories about the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, being permanently banned from Uber Eats for calling for an Uber without a Muslim driver, and bragging about being a #ProudIslamophobe, reports The Daily Beast.
None of that has dissuaded Trump campaign surrogate Lara Trump from campaigning for Loomer.

Lara Trump, wife to Eric Trump, was photographed with Loomer and several volunteers “knocking doors, making calls, and training new volunteers—all to spread the President’s record of success with their fellow Floridians,” according to a Tuesday tweet by Trump campaign deputy national press secretary Courtney Parella.
“Beyond her many instances of Islamophobia, Loomer has also praised and appeared with Canadian white nationalist and Holocaust denier Faith Goldy and made racist comments about Latinos. She has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Uber, Uber Eats, and Lyft,” reports the Daily Beast.
