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.”

New York City Dems Push Law to Allow 800,000 Non-Citizens to Vote in Municipal Elections

New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.

“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.

“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

Fox News reports:

Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.

Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”

The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
