Donald Trump had two daughters-in-law, but since Donald Trump Jr. divorced his wife to spend more time with his Celebrity Apprentice mistress, the elder Trump is down to just one, Lara Trump. She, like the other women in the Trump family, comes across as relatively quiet, but Eric Trump’s wife, Lara, is working hard behind the scene. In fact, she is more active than her husband on the 2020 Trump campaign. Now, Lara is hitting the Trump network, Fox, and her profile is about to change.
Lara Trump has been a powerhouse, actually, as an American television producer and the producer/host of Trump Production’s Real News Update. The president’s daughter-in-law has also been serving as an adviser to the Trump reelection campaign. She went on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business host for an interview. He said that the footage of the refugees fleeing to the U.S.’s southern border reminded him of migrants moving through Europe. Varney asked her:
‘When there was a march across Europe by a million people who wanted to get into Western Europe, Angela Merkel let them in.’
Trump said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was responsible for Germany’s “downfall:”
‘On Fox Business, Trump campaign official Lara Trump claims that “the downfall of Germany” was ….. [squints at notes] …. Merkel’s decision to allow refugees into the country.’

Lara Trump continued with her answer:
‘It was the downfall of Germany, it was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany. This president knows that, he’s trying to prevent that from happening here.’
During 2015, Merkel let over one million refugees into her country. She has long been the defacto public representative of the European Union and urged other nations to accept their fair share of those fleeing wars in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Merkel called the flood of immigrants victims an “extraordinary” circumstance. Rather than support the victims of U.S.-related wars, Donald Trump attacked her immigration policies when he was campaigning. He said they were “insane” and she was “ruining Germany.” To say that Trump has been difficult when it comes to Americans’ best allies is an understatement. The two world leaders have had a difficult relationship. They clashed over the Iran nuclear deal, tariffs, and a gas pipeline with Russia.
Trump has not handled the refugee crisis along the U.S.’s southern border well, even by the lowest of standards. Those people were fleeing the severe violence of gangs that have been no less terrible than that of those fighting wars in the Middle East.
Rather than increase the amount of U.S. financial aid to the countries taken over by the gangs, he cut them. The funds helped prevent poverty and increase a police presence in the three Central American countries. POTUS’ response to the refugees did the opposite of what he intended. Then, he tore their children from their arms and put them all in cages.
