Lara Trump says campaign ‘always following the guidelines’ despite few masks, lack of social distancing at RNC
“Well, look, we always, whether it’s at this event you saw at the White House or at any campaign event, we always encourage people to follow the guidelines and to do what they think is best for themselves,” Lara Trump told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “So we always have masks available we encourage people to use them, we always have a hand sanitizer available, and we encourage people to spread themselves out.”
“But I think, you know, as it always works out, people always rush towards the front of the stage they want to be around this President, they pack themselves in,” she continued, adding: “At a certain point in this country, I think we all have to recognize the people want to get back to normal, and you know what? Maybe it’s going to a Trump rally that does that. But we are always following the guidelines.”
Unlike most Americans, President Donald Trump has access to an extensive testing regime that his aides say renders him the “most tested man in America,” and anyone who comes into close proximity with him receives one.
“So look, we either have to say that everybody plays by the same rules or we have to stop talking about it. Because whenever you’re talking about the President’s campaign, you know, and how people weren’t specifically socially distant, but the next day, thousands of people on the National Mall and that’s not a problem for anybody. It seems a little hypocritical,” the President’s daughter-in-law said.
