On Saturday evening, Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, urged Americans living at the U.S.-Mexico border to “arm up and get guns” because, she wrongly asserted, the immigration policies of the Biden administration are making the country less safe and secure.
During an appearance on the Fox News show “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” Mrs. Trump called President Joe Biden’s actions on the border “disgraceful,” adding:
“I don’t know what to tell the people that live at the southern border. I guess they better arm up, get guns and be ready, and maybe they’ll have to start taking matters into their own hands. It should never happen. These people should never make this dangerous journey here.”

Calling for violence in response to a problem. That’s the Trump way, as we learned during four disastrous years with Donald Trump in the White House. The former president even incited a riot on Capitol Hill by telling his supporters to march on Congress and demand that the results of the 2020 election be overturned despite the fact that he had lost by a wide margin to Biden.
Reaction on Twitter in response to Lara Trump’s vile rhetoric was immediate and harsh:
I’m impressed by the Trumps’ ability to find and marry people who are as awful as they are.

“Taking matters into their own hands”.
After they “arm up”.
So, the entire trump criminal syndicate is just gonna keep going out there and inciting violence?
Botox Barbie doesn’t care about the border, she wants the mob to take “matters into their own hands”.

Does anyone care that Lara Trump is encouraging people to “arm up and take matters into their own hands” in a state where any adult can get & carry a gun without a permit?
She’s encouraging murder because shootouts at the border will help GOP politically.

I’m guessing there’s a reason Lara only thinks immigrants who come in through the southern border are unacceptable. Can’t quite put my finger on what that reason might be. https://t.co/htVp7kc0A5
