Organizers had a goal of raising roughly $500,000 during the event in order to rescue around 500 dogs by cargo plane from China’s meat markets. During his surprise visit, the President praised his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, while hinting that she may run for a seat in the Senate.
“I want to thank Lara who has been so incredible,” the 45th President said on stage. “And I don’t know, aren’t you running for the Senate?”
While an official announcement has yet to be made, Lara has teased a possible Senate run in the past. She would further promote her father-in-law’s message of “making America great again.”
