Lara Trump Reminds Rioters: Theft and Arson “Also Illegal”


In a fiery Tweet, Lara Trump reminded people that theft and arson are "also illegal."

Lara was weighing in on the death of George Floyd.

The video evidence suggests that the cop involved wrongly killed Floyd after kneeling on his neck for several minutes.

However, whether the death was pre-meditated or fueled by racism is currently unknown or unsupported by the available evidence.

Though the police officer has been arrested and charged with 3rd degree manslaughter, riots have spread in Minneapolis and across the nation.

These riots have resulted in looting and arson.

Now, Lara Trump is reminding people that illegal is illegal.

Fire should not be fought with fire!

See her inspiring tweet below:

Lara Trump's tweet comes as violent riots over George Floyd's death have spilled over into other cities.

Though the riots began in Minneapolis, there have been reports of riots in Atlanta, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.

Fox News reports that 1,700 National Guard are now being sent to Minneapolis to handle riots that are "no longer about the death of George Floyd": 

Gov. Tim Walz announced Saturday he has authorized "full mobilization" of the state's National Guard - something that has never been done in the 164-year history of the Minnesota National Guard.

Walz, who has been hammered by residents, critics and the press for his response to the crisis in his state, pushed back on the idea that the protests, which have turned increasingly violent, now have anything to do with George Floyd, an unarmed black man in Minneapolis killed while in police custody.

"The tactics and the approach that we have taken have evolved and need to evolve the same way, with a sensitivity to the legitimate rage and anger that came after what the world witnessed in the murder of George Floyd and was manifested in a very healthy gathering of community to memorialize that Tuesday night, which was still present to a certain degree on Wednesday," he said, adding, "By Thursday it was nearly gone and last night is a mockery of pretending this is about George Floyd's death or inequities or historical traumas to our communities of color."

During his Saturday morning press conference, Walz also thanked first responders "who are out there protecting our cities."

"As they were taking incoming fire, improvised explosive devices and a highly evolved and tightly-controlled group of folks bent on adapting their tactics to make it as difficult as possible to maintain that order," he said.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey added that most of the violent protesters aren't residents of the city but instead people taking advantage of a situation and hellbent on fanning the flames of hate.

"This is no longer about protesting," Frey said.  "This is about violence and we need to make sure that it stops."

Both leaders have implied that organized outsiders, including but not limited to anarchists, white supremacists and gangs from other states, were behind the destruction and chaos in Minneapolis.

“The sheer number of rioters has made it impossible to make coherent arrests... The capacity to be able to do offensive action was greatly diminished” by the sheer scope and seemingly organized nature of the assaults," Walz said.

“The terrifying thing is that this resembles more a military operation now as you observe ringleaders moving from place to place,” he added.

No matter how you spin it, the death of George Floyd does not justify more crime.

It does not make it right to steal or destroy.

And that's exactly the point Lara Trump promoted on Twitter!

Lara Trump has taken a more prominent role in Trump's re-election campaign.

Most recently, she has spoken out to women, telling them that while you may not like the way Donald Trump speaks, you can still support his policies.

According to USA Today, Lara Trump hosted MAGA Mommy roundtables:

As many Iowans hunkered down for a massive snowstorm in early January, Lara Trump convened a "MAGA Mommy" roundtable with a group of women at a local library.

Tucked in a conference room plastered with "Women for Trump" signs, the president's daughter-in-law discussed the high costs of child care, the economy and what she sees as the danger of a Democrat in the White House. Then she posed some questions.

“How have your lives changed – have you seen anything change – since Donald Trump took office?” Trump asked the women, some of whom looked on while their children colored at a conference table. “Is there anything we can take back to him that you would like to see happen that hasn’t happened already?”

During the half-hour discussion, the mothers opened up about balancing life as a working mom while Trump described raising her own two children, 5-month-old Carolina and 2-year-old Luke. By the end of the event, she moved through the conversation with each mom,reminding them that president's policies matter more than his style.

Lara Trump, 37, wife of the president's son Eric, has emerged as a top campaign adviser, focusing heavily on female voters. Polls have consistently shown women are less supportive than men of Trump. In the 2018 midterms, suburban women rejected the GOP in large numbers, raising fears in the party that a similar gender gap could play out in the November presidential election.

Through the “Women for Trump” initiative spearheaded by Lara Trump, the campaign is trying to energize the president's female supporters and make inroads with women who like some aspects of Trump’s presidency but dislike others.

“Whether you don’t like everything he says, or the way he says it, or his hair or whatever it is, you can’t argue that what he’s done hasn't worked in this country,” she told USA TODAY while crisscrossing Iowa on a bus tour.

Working with other officials on the campaign, the president's daughter-in-law is looking to turn out the “hidden Trump vote,” a concept promoted in 2016 by White House senior adviser and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who argued that Trump has support among some women who are reluctant to say so publicly.

Despite all the cultural narratives that Democrats and the media are trying to perpetuate, President Trump and his reelection team are going to fight harder than any other Republican candidate to win more women and black voters than ever!

Thank you, Lara Trump, for speaking up!
