The president’s daughter-in-law and Trump 2020 campaign advisor Lara Trump attempted to distance Donald Trump from the chorus of “send her back” shouted by his supporters at a rally this week, while also falsely claiming that only “a couple” of attendees contributed to the racist chants.
“He wasn’t the one that was chanting it,” Lara Trump said during an interview with Fox Business on Friday morning. “The crowd themselves started chanting this. It wasn’t the whole crowd. It was a couple of people right there in the front but he didn’t say it.”
