Lara Trump defended her role as RNC co-chair against questions about her ties to former president Donald Trump, noting she isn’t the first family member in such a position.

When asked about concerns over the “Trump family takeover” of the Republican party, she highlighted her experience in three Trump presidential campaigns and media exposure over eight years, saying their experience “rivals most people who make their career in politics.”

“I hope you won’t be offended by the premise of this question, but the position of RNC co-chair is not one that traditionally gets this kind of attention,” Capitol Hill correspondent Garrett Haake said.

He added, “A lot of it is because of who you are as Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law. You have Donald Trump’s last name. What do you say to Republican voters? And there are millions of them, people who voted for Nikki Haley, Republicans who are not comfortable with the idea of sort of the Trump family takeover of the Republican Party.”

She said her role is to assure donors their money is well spent and will go toward electing Donald Trump and other Republicans.

“If you look at the fact that I am one of very few people who can say that I have been part of now three presidential campaigns,” she said, “the media exposure and experience that we in the Trump family have had over the past eight years rivals most people who make their career in politics, and I can guarantee you, none of us ever imagined we would find ourselves in this position.”

“Can they trust the RNC? Can they donate to this entity? Trust me, I am the daughter-in-law of Donald Trump,” Lara Trump said.

Lara Trump claimed she can guarantee donors she will ensure “every penny” goes toward causes important to Republican voters.

“I will ensure that every penny of every dollar is going to causes that Republican voters care about. We want to, of course, elect Donald Trump at the top of the ticket and then, of course, elect Republicans all the way down,” she said.
