Lara Trump To Trump Voters: ‘Remain Calm And Protest At The Ballot Box’

 Republican National Committee co-chair Lara Trump said on Sunday that voters should not panic after a Democrat-led prosecution resulted in a guilty verdict for former President Donald Trump in his hush money trial.

Lara Trump made the remarks on CNN’s “State of the Union” with guest host Kasie Hunt while discussing last week’s outcome in Manhattan.

Hunt asked what Trump supporters should do if the former president is sentenced to jail, to which she replied: “They’re going to do what they have done from the beginning, which is remain calm and protest at the ballot box on November 5.”

“There’s nothing to do, other than make your voices heard loud and clear and speak out against this, because this is not the United States of America,” she continued. “This is the kind of thing you would expect to see in the communist USSR. So they shouldn’t do anything until voting starts, and then they’re going to come out in droves. And I believe Donald Trump will be re-elected as the 47th president.”

Her remarks came as her husband, Eric Trump, said during a Fox News interview that the former president had raised more than $200 million since the verdict last week.

She said the campaign had seen a roughly six-point jump in the polls since the conviction and that 30% of the small-dollar donors who have given to Trump’s campaign have been first-time donors.


“What matters to people right now isn’t Donald Trump in downtown Manhattan in a case that everybody can see was weighed against him, that never should have seen the light of day. They care about their lives,” she said. “They care about the fact that they can’t make ends meet right now, that it’s harder to put food on the table for their families, that they can’t fill their gas tank up in the same way that they’re worried about the future of the world because we have a war in Europe, we have a war in the Middle East. They want to get back to the days when they felt safe and secure as Americans with their economy and with the rest of the world.”
