Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump elected as RNC's co-chair

The decision, made unanimously by the committee, has caused uproar on social media.
Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump elected as RNC's co-chair

Following her success as the Republican frontrunner during Super Tuesday, Donald Trump now has a strong influence within the RNC. Two of his close allies, Michael Whatley and Lara Trump, were officially appointed to top positions in the committee. Both candidates had received Trump's endorsement prior to their appointments.

Michael Whatley, the head of the North Carolina Republican Party, will replace Ronna McDaniel as the RNC chair. McDaniel announced her resignation last month after pressure from Trump's supporters. In her farewell speech, McDaniel expressed her support for Trump's reelection campaign and urged others to join her.

During the appointment ceremony, Lara Trump reaffirmed her dedication to her father-in-law, stating that her primary focus would be on reelecting Donald Trump, securing Republican control of the Senate, and expanding the party's representation in the House.

However, Lara's appointment has sparked controversy online, particularly after a viral speech nominating her emphasized her perceived lack of qualifications for the position. While some criticized Lara's appointment, others defended her, citing her dedication to the Republican cause as evidence of her suitability for the role.
