Yesterday, we reported that Donald Trump was firing back at Joe Biden after he claimed that the MAGA crowd as the “most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.” Now, Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara, who is married to his son Eric, is also hitting back by saying that the MAGA movement started because of “failed politicians” like Biden.
“Not that we expect a whole lot of Joe Biden but even this was totally ridiculous to label the MAGA crowd as one of the most extreme political outfits in history,” she told Fox News. “Give me a break. I guess he forgot about the roughly $2 billion worth of damage during the summer of 2020 riots caused by Antifa and BLM but, of course, we never heard him say a word about those people.”
Not stopping there, Lara proceeded to defend the hardworking American men and women who make up the MAGA coalition. These conservative Americans have been shamed by leftist lawmakers and the media constantly, yet they still believe in the American dream.
“In case Joe Biden is interested in who the MAGA crowd is, these are people that love America, that get up in America, they go to work,” she said. “They pay their taxes. They go to church. They believe in the police. They believe that we should be a sovereign nation with borders. They don’t want to pay triple what we have to pay now in gas and groceries from about 18 months ago.”
“These are people that want to achieve the American dream and don’t want the government smothering it for them and, yes, Joe Biden, they believe that, like our founders, we shouldn’t have a centralized government power at the federal level in Washington, D.C. and that we, the people, at the state level should be able to make decisions for ourselves,” Lara continued. “That is what this country is all about.”
Lara concluded by zeroing in on Biden directly, saying that he “is missing the bigger point here.”
“The MAGA movement was started because of failed politicians exactly like Joe Biden,” she explained. “Because American people were sick and tired of getting fed the same old garbage by politicians who would go to Washington, D.C. and work for themselves and never work for the people. That’s why this movement was founded.”
This came after former President Trump also defended his supporters, saying that “MAGA is saving America,”
“Our country is going to hell. MAGA is saving America,” he added. “Inflation, incompetent withdrawals from Afghanistan, leaving hostages horribly wounded, soldiers, $85 billion of military equipment – MAGA is saving America.”
Given just how low Biden’s approval numbers have been since he took office, it appears many Americans would agree with the Trumps’ assertions about MAGA.
