Lara Trump says debates ‘rigged so heavily’ in Biden’s favor

Lara Trump, co-chair of the Republican National Committee, claimed Wednesday evening, without evidence, that the debates were still “heavily rigged” in favor of President Biden.

Earlier on Wednesday, Biden and former President Trump agreed to participate in two presidential debates: the first on CNN on June 27 and the second on ABC on September 10.

Lara Trump said in an interview with Fox News Channel's "Hannity" that "the scales have always tipped in favor of Donald Trump." But she indicated that the former president - her father-in-law - is ready to take on his rival.

"And this year more than ever, with all the legal war, with everything we've seen against him - in a crazy way, Sean, they've really prepared him for this moment, because he's not afraid to whatever they throw at him,” Lara Trump told host Sean Hannity, referring to the four criminal indictments Trump faces.

“It's heavily rigged in Joe Biden's favor, but everything still is,” she said, adding, “Despite that and even the justice system at this point, he's beating Joe Biden in every poll. " It's incredible to see.

She continued: "So if Joe Biden shows up on June 27 and doesn't come up with an excuse like washing his hair or something, I have every confidence that Donald Trump will beat him."

Recent New York Times/Siena College/Philadelphia Inquirer polls show the former president leading Biden in five of six swing states among registered voters. While the polls have raised alarms among some Democrats, others have pointed out the gap in the president's performance in the polls.

A Democratic pollster for the Biden campaign, Jeff Garin, told The Hill that the poll results "need to be compared to more than 30 polls showing Biden leading and winning — which is exactly why drawing broad conclusions about the race on based on the results of a single survey. the poll is wrong.

“The reality is that many voters are not paying close attention to the election and have not begun to make up their minds – a dynamic also reflected in today’s poll,” Garin continued. “These voters will decide this election and only the Biden campaign is doing the work to convince them. »

The Hill has reached out to the Biden campaign for a response.

In a hypothetical head-to-head matchup between Trump and Biden, the Hill/Decision HQ national poll average shows the men neck and neck, with Biden leading by 0.3 percentage points, 44.7 percent to 44.4 percent. hundred.
