2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump defended her father-in-law during an appearance on Fox News Monday night, joining the president in his attacks of Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
“It’s very frustrating to see people who are supposed to represent our country, these congresswomen, dump on our country every single day — call for the abolishment of ice, call for open borders, go against everything that he’s doing,” she said. “At a certain point, we’re all frustrated as Americans.”
“The reality is everything he says, of course, was taken and misconstrued,” she claimed.
“We need to step back for a second and remember Donald Trump is a man who gave up his entire life because he loves this country so much and he wanted to fix it,” she claimed.
Lara Trump also questioned the intentions of the four congresswomen the president had told to “go back” to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
“Why are you representing people of this country if you dislike it so much?” she asked.
