Lara Trump: My Father-in-Law is Not a Bigot, Racist

Lara Trump: My Father-in-Law is Not a Bigot, Racist Read Transcript

There are a lot of people who are upset with

your father-in-law.

And they're labeling him as a racist, a bigot.

Is that fair?

No, absolutely not.

I think, the reality is, I said it before.

The media spins a lot.

They can take a completely innocent statement

and change it around significantly.

My father-in-law has been very clear

that there is no room in this country for racism,

for bigotry, for hatred like we saw in Charlottesville.

And it's unfortunate that people who want to discount him,

who want to make him look bad, would

do something that is so divisive to this country--

because I really think the way that a lot of the liberal media

has played clips of him speaking has been very

detrimental to this country.

And I think, if you talk to anyone who's

known Donald Trump for a long time, they will tell you,

he doesn't have a racist bone in his body.

In fact, his spokeswoman for the campaign

is a single African-American mother, Katrina Pierson,

who has become one of my closest friends.

She said it herself.

You don't hire someone like her to represent

your entire campaign if you are a racist.

It's really sad that we even have

to have a conversation about this.

But I understand that it's a very sensitive subject

to people.

And I do think my father-in-law has made himself very clear

the way he feels about things.
