President Trump Now Has a ‘Real News’ Show Hosted by His Daughter-in-Law
The show is on the president's Facebook page.
President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, hosted a “real news” program on his official Facebook page last Sunday. She uses the time to go over the president’s accomplishments, which she said were being overshadowed by “fake news.”
The video was first reported by BuzzFeed, and features Lara Trump against a Trump-Pence background as she talks about the president donating his salary each quarter, the country’s economic growth and Donald Trump’s interaction with military veterans and the police. Lara Trump says she bets viewers haven’t heard about these things “because there’s so much fake news out there.”
However, Buzzfeed notes that many of the stories that Lara Trump highlights had been widely reported on by the national media, and had also been discussed during the White House press briefings covered by all major networks.
The program has more than 2 million views on Facebook. Vox says it might be a partial fulfillment of rumors from the campaign of a “Trump TV” program. Trump was mad that he was generating revenue for other media companies during the presidential campaign as Vanity Fair reported.
Also during his campaign, Trump’s Facebook page hosted a full program produced by Right Side Broadcasting Network, a conservative media company. It featured campaign staff like Kellyanne Conway and conservative media personalities like Tomi Lahren.
The video by Lara Trump seems to suggest this could be a weekly program, and it is unclear whether the program is tied directly to the White House or campaign communications teams.
