Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law is facing a backlash for comments she recently made about German history.
Lara Trump told Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Thursday that allowing refugees into the country was “the downfall of Germany.” She added, “It was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany.”
“This president knows that. He’s trying to prevent it from happening,” Trump continued.

@LaraLeaTrump so…what are the worst things to happen to Germany? Immigrants under Merkel? Hitler? Allied invasion/occupation? Treaty of Versailles? Kristallnacht? Partition of Germany (1945-1990), 30 Years War?

"Congresswoman Lauren Underwood of Illinois is one of the freshmen Democrats who flipped a Republican district last year in winning her election. She brings the total number of House Democrats supporting impeachment now to 126 -- a majority of the Democrats' 235 members of the House," he explained.
