WATCH LIVE: TRUMP VIRGINIA RALLY

Lara Trump Fires Back at The Breakfast Club, Says President Should Go on Show

Lara Trump, daughter-in-law to the president and campaign adviser, responded to the hosts of New York radio show The Breakfast Club on Fox News Wednesday, after they criticized Donald Trump.

In their interview on Fox News Monday night, hosts Charlamagne tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy were asked by Shannon Bream if they would interview the president.

They said they would have him on the show, but were unsure he’d accept the invitation: “I don’t think he would come because I don’t think he cares about our audience. There’s nothing about Donald Trump that makes me think he cares about black or brown people,” Charlamagne said.

“There’s a lot of hurtful things he’s said that personally have offended me,” Yee added.

Bream asked Lara Trump about those comments in an interview last night, and the Trump campaign staffer pushed back.

“Well, that’s crazy and that’s ridiculous,” she said, before floating an appearance: “By the way, I think he would be great on their show. I think he would really surprise them. He’s never scared of an interview.”

Lara Trump went on to say it’s a “shame” that the hosts are “not recognizing the incredible things that this president has done for the African-American community.”

She bashed “our first black president, President Barack Obama” for having 10% African-American unemployment during his administration. After the recession in 2008, black unemployment spiked, but by the time Obama left office in 2017 it had dropped below 8%.

After pointing to the First Step Act, Lara Trump concluded that it was “absolute nonsense” to claim President Trump doesn’t care about the black community.

“I’d like for him to go on there and be able to state his claim because that’s just not true,” she said.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, LARA.
