(September 3, 2020 / JNS) Trump campaign adviser and presidential daughter-in-law Lara Trump campaigned on Tuesday with Jewish congressional candidate Laura Loomer.
Loomer won last month in a primary against five other GOP candidates. She is a long shot in the Nov. 3 election against incumbent Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) in Florida’s 21st Congressional District.
Lara Trump is married to one of U.S. President Donald Trump’s sons, Eric Trump.

Along with believing in far-right conspiracies, Loomer, who was congratulated by U.S. President Donald Trump on her primary win, has called herself a “proud Islamophobe.” Loomer has been banned from Facebook for her views.
The Republican Jewish Coalition has declined to comment on Loomer’s candidacy or primary victory.
