Lara Trump, wife of Eric, is a typical Trump, insofar as she doesn’t let the facts get in the way of a good, self-serving fantasy. She announced this week that Donald Trump is doing “historic fundraising,” and plans to raise $1Billion to stay in the White House. This will be interesting to see, since Democrats raised far more money than Republicans in the last two elections. Obama raised $731Mil to Romney’s $474Mil in 2012, and Hillary Clinton raised $623Mil compared to Trump’s $335. But now, all that is going to change, Lara Trump tells us, and Trump will triple what he raised in 2016, even with all his bad press and sinking polls. Despite those gloomy indicators, Lara Trump said Friday, “We like to set very high expectations for ourselves.” Current expectations are a billion dollars in campaign donations and a slam dunk re-election. Newsweek:
On Friday, Lara Trump told Fox News she is not concerned with the current field of Democratic candidates, saying they are all trying to “out-Bernie” one another by embracing ideas such as “socialism.” Speaking to Fox & Friends Sunday, Trump said they are not concerned over former Vice President Joe Biden’s potential run and she said the Democratic Party establishment should be “very worried” should an Independent candidate such as Howard Schultz run in 2020.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told the Associated Press Friday there have been more than 1.1 million new donors since Election Day, with 100,000 alone in January. She claimed there have been at least seven days with seven-figure, small-dollar intakes since January 1.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale first predicted the campaign will spend $1 billion in 2020 last week. On Friday, Lara Trump told Fox News she believes Trump will win re-election “very easily.”
Lara Trump was the one who said that federal workers should bite the bullet during the government shutdown and “feel a little pain” because the “wall is so much bigger than them.” Right.
