Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, went on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning to blast critical race theory, saying that it teaches American children to “judge people on the color of their skin,” adding that this is “dead wrong.”
Lara said this after the head of the teacher’s union, Randi Weingarten, accused Republican lawmakers of “bullying” teachers on race.
“I think the reality here is that anybody that thinks that critical race theory is positive is really just dead wrong. The bottom line is that anything that would teach us, anything but loving our country…loving one another, and judging people based on the content of their character, solely is just flat wrong,” Lara said during the Fox News appearance.
“For us to see the head of the teachers union promoting critical race theory, I’m not surprised, by the way, to see Jill Biden there with her touring around schools,” she continued. “It is her husband who is also the president of the United States, pushing critical race theory, not just in our schools, also in our military.”
Not stopping there, Lara proceeded to double down.
“Of course, we want the truth,” she said. “We want the true history to come out. But for anybody to suggest somehow that critical race theory is positive, to teach our kids to judge one another on the color of their skin, first and foremost, is wrong. It’s a really scary thing.”
“I think a lot of parents have taken this very seriously, and I’ve been very excited to see how many parents around the country have come out against this and have said, ‘look, enough is enough,” Lara concluded. “We are not going to stand up for this. We’re going to stand up for our kids and we’re going to push back on critical race theory.’ Really, a shame to see this.
Critical race theory has become a hot-button issue in the United States as of late, with conservatives claiming that Democrats are trying to use it to indoctrinate American children and make them have disdain for this country. Check out Lara’s full comments below.
