Lara Trump Makes Bizarre Attempt To Mock Dems For Wanting To Beat Trump In 2020


She was referring to a new Fox News poll that surveyed Democratic primary voters on candidate characteristics that were “extremely” important. At the top of the list was whether the Democratic candidate can defeat Trump in 2020.

“That’s a little bit sad isn’t it?” Lara Trump said on Fox News. “Shouldn’t you want someone that you think can run the country well, that’s gonna do the best job at being president, not just beat Donald Trump? But I think it actually speaks to the fact that there are still a lot of people who out there that are very upset that Hillary Clinton did not win in 2016.”
