As the government shutdown persists, entering day 32 on Tuesday, Lara Trump says that federal workers missing paychecks are going through just “a little bit of pain” for the betterment of the country.
In an interview for digital news network Bold TV, the daughter-in-law (Eric Trump’s wife) of and reelection campaign adviser to President Trump talked about the ongoing shutdown and the president’s goal to raise support and money for the border wall. And although she explained that POTUS is doing all he can to work “on behalf of the American people,” Lara is now getting called out for praising the “sacrifice” of Americans who are working without pay.
“Listen, it’s not fair to you, we all get that. But this is so much bigger than any one person. It is a little bit of pain, but it’s going to be for the future of our country,” she said about furloughed workers. “And generations after them will thank them for their sacrifice right now. I know it’s hard.”
But many people don’t believe that she understands the hardship.
Others are praising Lara and the president for focusing on what progress government workers’ sacrifices may yield.
Nonetheless, one person says that both sides can likely agree on one thing: The government should be open.
