Lara Trump predicts Georgia will ‘solidify’ Trump as next President

Lara Trump, former President Trump’s daughter-in-law, said she believes his display of criminal charges in Georgia on Thursday “bumped” his chances of winning the 2024 presidential election.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday evening, she described the case against Trump as a political charge.

“I don’t think it will work. I think people understand what’s going on, and I think Donald Trump was just cemented tonight as the 47th President of the United States,” she said.

Trump has a big lead in the Republican primary — he averages more than half of Republican support in polls — but the polls are near a tie with President Biden.

That will change soon, she said, as Republican voters understand the severity of their voting needs.

“His poll ratings keep going up every time they try to do something like that against him because I think the country is becoming more and more aware of what they are trying to do and why it’s so dangerous – why this precedent can’t do it .” “We’re going to be successful here in America,” she said.

Lara Trump has said that Democrats are trying to “cut the fat off the Constitution” and damage the foundations of US democracy, echoing Trump’s own complaints.

“I kind of feel like this is our last chance to save this country,” she said.

Trump turned himself in Thursday at the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, a step in his lengthy racketeering case before a Georgia state court.

Prosecutors allege that Trump advanced a plan to reverse Georgia’s 2020 election results by compiling a list of fake electoral college votes. His 18 co-defendants include his attorneys, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

The trial in that case begins Oct. 23 for at least one defendant, former Trump attorney Kenneth Cheseboro, who in a court filing called for a speedy trial. Prosecutors are expected to request that the trials of all 19 defendants begin by that date, a move Trump’s attorneys have already objected to.
