Lara Trump has suggested that children are dying of cancer as a result of New York Attorney General Letitia James investigating her husband Eric Trump and her father-in-law, former President Donald Trump.

Eric Trump is one of the ex-president’s three children named alongside him as defendants in a $250 million civil fraud case filed by James on Wednesday. During a performance on TBEN News’ TBEN & Friends on Thursday, Lara Trump speculated that children died as a result of James targeting her husband.

She pointed out that James’s investigation included an investigation of a charity Eric Trump had founded. The charity donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which specializes in treating childhood diseases, including sometimes fatal childhood cancer.

“My husband started a charity to raise money for children at St. Jude Children’s Hospital,” said Lara Trump. “When he was 22 years old, he raised $30 million for the children of St. Jude. And Letitia James has such a vitriol and hatred for anyone with the last name ‘Trump’ that she decided to investigate my husband’s charity, despite the fact that it had one of the lowest expense ratios of all private charities in America.”

“And alas, guess who was hurt by that?” she continued. “It wasn’t my husband, it’s St. Jude’s children. Who knows how many children have died needlessly thanks to her research and her vitriol and hatred for anyone with the surname ‘Trump’.”

Trump gave no details on how James’s investigation could have caused the deaths of children.

Eric Trump’s charity has previously been accused of telling donors that the contributions would go to help children with cancer and instead channel the funds toward various causes, according to TBEN.

Trump has defended his record by boasting last year that by the age of 30 he had raised $25 million for charity.

James’ lawsuit is not about Eric Trump’s charity. Instead, it accuses former president, Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and two former Trump Organization executives of fraud by participating in a scheme to “knowingly and intentionally” submit more than 200 false and misleading valuations of company assets between 2011 and 2021.

“With the help of his children and senior executives at the Trump Organization, Donald Trump has falsely inflated his wealth by billions of dollars to falsely enrich himself and defraud the system,” James said in a statement after the lawsuit was filed.

“In fact, the basis of his alleged net worth is rooted in incredible fraud and illegality,” she added. “Mr. Trump thought he could get away with the art of stealing, but today that ends.”

Eric Trump called James’ lawsuit “not shocking” in a Truth Social post on Wednesday, suggesting the suit was politically motivated and shared a poll indicating James’ re-election bid could falter as she faces her Republican opponent in the election. of November somewhat haunting.

Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr also accused James of participating in a “political hit job” by involving the former president’s children in her lawsuit during a TBEN News interview on Wednesday, arguing that the children “not the details” of the alleged false valuations despite holding top positions within the Trump Organization.

News week has contacted James’s office for comment.
