Lara Trump Claims Donald Trump 'Does Accept Election Results' In Bonkers Interview

Former President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump, the new co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), was widely criticized after declaring that Trump actually "does accept election results."

It was an eye-opening response considering Trump's history of peddling falsehoods about the 2020 election, which he lost decisively to then-candidate Joe Biden.

Trump is also currently facing state and federal charges regarding the January 6 insurrection, the day a mob of Trump's supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false premise the election had been stolen. Additionally, he and multiple associates were charged last year with conspiring to overturn the election results in Georgia, a key swing state.

Lara Trump appeared on Newsmax to respond to remarks from prominent Democrats who've expressed concern that Trump will not accept the 2024 election results in the event he loses.

You can hear what she said in the video below.

Host Eric Bolling asked:

“You have Barack Obama, Joe Biden, now Hillary Clinton saying something to you to the effect of, if Trump loses, he will not accept the results. Is that coordinated?”

To that, Lara Trump responded:

“I think, isn’t it all coordinated? Isn’t all of this stuff coming from one place? It’s pretty obvious that Donald Trump does accept election results even despite the fact that it was a very questionable election in 2020 because Joe Biden is, unfortunately, sitting in the Oval Office today.”
“What Donald Trump has said – and I think he’s exactly right – is that we should have free, fair, and transparent elections. And unfortunately, Eric, there are millions and millions of Americans out there who don’t feel like they can trust our electoral process. We can’t function as a country like that.”
"So he said, 'Yes, if I feel this is a fair election, if I feel like if you guys didn't interfere in any way'—which they [Democrats] are obviously trying to do with all these cases against him—'then no problem, I'm happy to accept the results of the election."

She concluded:

"The truth is, if there's no election interference, if everything's fair and there's nothing nefarious happening in an election that is pretty clear based on all these polls out there and everyone you talk to, Donald Trump will be the 47th president."

But given her father-in-law's history, no one was buying what she was selling.

This is only Lara Trump's latest oddball comment about the upcoming election.

She was criticized last week after stating in a Fox Business interview that ballots shouldn't be counted "after elections are over." She told host Maria Bartiromo that this is simply to ensure "that we have a free, fair and transparent election.”

The week before that, she appeared on Newsmax and told Bolling that the RNC's 2024 election operatives will include "people who can physically handle the ballots."

However, poll watchers are usually designated by political parties to oversee election administration and sometimes monitor voter turnout. They are tasked with reporting issues or irregularities to authorities and election officials.

Moreover, state-specific regulations guide their actions, but poll watchers are generally forbidden from disrupting the electoral process, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
