Lara Trump: Online Nationwide Rally With POTUS In The Works

Published

Lara Trump is ensuring that the American people can still be actively involved in the upcoming November presidential elections, even as the majority are still in lockdown mitigating the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Lara, the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump and a senior advisor to the Donald J. Trump For President, Inc., is working remotely in the virtual world every day from her home in New York City. She does this with one of the most innovative campaigns in modern politics and it looks like President Donald Trump will utilize the platform to reach the American people with a nationwide online rally.

“Well I think we would love to whenever the president has the time,” said Lara Trump. “I think that that’s maybe our big goal is to get him to be part of one of our virtual town halls and have him you know Skype, or however we can get him there to talk to the people.”

She told The Sara Carter Show this week that as the nation battles the virus, the campaign is innovating new ways of reaching the American people and getting those who actively want to support President Trump involved in the process.

The online outreach stemmed from concepts first initiated by campaign manager Brad Parscale, who began harnessing the power of the internet for the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

In mid-April, the campaign’s digital shows went live and according to Lara Trump the number of viewers has exceeded 1 million. Twitter, YouTube, Mixer, Instagram, Facebook and Twitch are some of the platforms utilized by the innovative approach to circumvent social distancing measures needed to stem the spread of the virus, while at the same time keeping the American people directly involved and updated on the election.

The shows are hosted by campaign staff, along with communications director Tim Murtaugh, and include interviews with some of the top Trump campaign supporters, lawmakers and pundits. More importantly, it opens up a venue for Americans to chat directly with members of the campaign staff, she added.

Although President Trump is not currently able to hold his popular rallies he relishes doing with the American people, this is a platform that he’s successful at utilizing and one that can allow his supporters to rally from their homes during this time.

“But Sara, that’s why he really loves doing the rallies that you see him do,” Lara Trump said. “That’s why we get you know a hundred thousand people RSVP for these rallies because people are sick of the mainstream media. They’re sick of the filter the nonsense that continues to come out of certain outlets and they want to hear directly from the president.”

She said Trump’s supporters “love coming to these Trump rallies” because it allows him to talk directly to the people and that’s what he continues to do through his use of Social media.

“People follow him on Twitter because the president wants to go directly to the people,” she said, adding that President Trump has exposed the bias in the mainstream media.

She said the online platforms, along with the President’s “two-plus hour press briefings that he does pretty much every day” circumvents the media’s bias and allows the team to speak directly to his supporters.

“I have to say we’ve got to give him a lot of credit for that,” she said, regarding President Trump’s long hours of work at the White House, along with his hours-long pressers. “That is not easy to stand up in front of a most hostile media take every single question that they throw his way because he really wants to deliver all of the information he can to the American people every single day.”

“I think he’s really exposed them,” she added. “I think most people have caught on to the bad outlets the bad actors in the journalism field. They know who they are. That’s why their ratings there are so incredibly low. And it’s why people are turning to things like podcasts like this because they want real information they want real news and they want it delivered directly.”

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
