  • Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law, spoke about price inflation on Fox News.
  • She claimed the rising cost of Thanksgiving dinner was part of a left-wing plot to destroy US traditions.
  • “They don’t want us to have any shared traditions like Thanksgiving,” she said.

Lara Trump, the wife of former President Donald Trump’s son Eric, said that the rising price of Thanksgiving dinner was part of a left-wing plot to destroy American traditions.

Trump appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” show on Wednesday to talk about inflation. Other guests blamed the Biden administration for rising prices, and pointed to “the left.”

Trump noted the rising costs of many items, and pointed to turkey prices as part of a plot to “transform” the US.

“They have told us from the beginning that they want to fundamentally transform America,” she said.

“Well, how do you that? You have to change America from the inside out, you have to take away our traditions.”

Watch her speak here:

She said: “So it might seem a little funny and a little ridiculous. ‘Oh, don’t have a turkey, then people won’t come over.’ Last year, remember, they didn’t want us to get together, so I guess we’re lucky they’re letting us have Thanksgiving this year.”

She was likely referring to health warnings against gathering at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At really, the core of this, they want to divide Americans up,” she said.

She continued: “They don’t want us to have any common ground. They don’t want us to have any shared traditions like Thanksgiving.”

The cost of Thanksgiving dinner is higher this year because of inflation.

Turkey prices are up about 13% from two years ago, Insider’s Andy Kiersz reported.
