Lara Trump’s ignorance called out after claiming taking in refugees destroyed Germany

Lara Trump

President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump embarrassed herself on Wednesday night trying to scare Americans about refugees by claiming refugees caused the “downfall” of Germany.

During an interview on Fox Business, Lara Trump demonized refugees and claimed that taking them in is the worst thing to happen to Germany, whose economy remains a powerhouse and enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world along with universal healthcare.

“It was the downfall of Germany,” she said. “It was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany. This president knows that. He’s trying to prevent it from happening.”

Here’s the video via Twitter.

The problem is that not only is Lara Trump wrong about Germany, she’s wrong about history, too. Germany is stronger today than it has ever been all while protecting human rights and democracy. As for the worst thing that’s ever happened to Germany, she conveniently forgets the Nazis and the Holocaust.

As a result of her stupidity and lies, Twitter mercilessly mocked her.

Trump’s war on refugees has reached fever pitch as he threatens to start a war with Mexico and close the border in order to stop Central American migrants from legally requesting asylum in the United States.

And he has committed crimes against humanity by placing migrants in the equivalent of concentration camps, much like Adolf Hitler did to Jews in the 1930s and 1940s. Rather than demonize refugees, Lara Trump should be calling out her father-in-law for trying to copy Germany’s greatest shame. But that would require her to be decent person.
