Former US President Trump is apparently forcing the previous co-chair of the Republican National Committee out of office. Instead, he now wants to have his daughter-in-law Lara Trump elected to the post.

Former US President Donald Trump has proposed his daughter-in-law Lara Trump as co-chair of the National Committee of the Republican Party RNC. “My very talented daughter-in-law Lara Trump has agreed to run for co-chair of the RNC. … She told me she wants to take on the challenge. And she would be great,” Trump shared.

As first chairman, he supported the Republican party leader in the state of North Carolina, Michael Whatley. “Michael has supported me from the beginning and has done a great job in North Carolina,” Trump said.

An RNC member said last week that the committee’s acting chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, was considering resigning from her post after this month’s South Carolina primary under pressure from Donald Trump.

Donald Trump, who wants to run again in the US presidential election in November, has made it clear several times in recent days that he believes the Republican National Committee needs to be reshuffled. The committee plays a critical role in raising funds for the Republican presidential candidate, providing campaign resources and activating voters.
