Recently the President has tasked his daughter-in-law to combat ‘fake news’ and recent reports about the President…
Lara Trump is a former TV producer for “Inside Edition,” and on Sunday launched her first online broadcast and gave a positive report about the President in a segment called real news. The NY Post reports:
“I’m Lara Trump and that is the real news,” she said at the end of a two-minute video posted on Trump’s Facebook page.
It appears the Trump news channel is produced by his reelection campaign as Lara Trump is speaking against the backdrop of his campaign website – DonaldJTrump.com.
Lara Trump, pregnant and married to middle son Eric, expressed frustration that more of the president’s accomplishments didn’t get into the spotlight.
“I bet you haven’t heard about all the accomplishments the president had this week because there is so much fake news out there,” Lara Trump said. But it was a tough week for the administration.
Obamacare repeal failed, the new communications director went on a nasty tirade and was later dumped and Trump ousted his chief of staff.
Lara Trump is not a government employee. Her husband, Eric, runs the Trump Organization with Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr. The family have routinely relied on their vast social media followings to paint a rosy picture of the White House and the family’s successes.
Many have long thought that the President was looking at starting a media company aimed at providing news to his followers. Is this the beginning of that? Or is this a creative way his campaign is pushing talking points?
