Lara Trump dismisses Elizabeth Warren as 2020 threat, says 'I don't know that many people could stand to vote for her'
Trump 2020 campaign senior advisor Lara Trump appeared on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" Wednesday and dismissed Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren as a real threat in 2020, saying her "far-left" platform would hurt her in the general election.
"I think a lot of folks who may have considered voting for someone like Joe Biden are going to be very turned off by ideas like universal health care, which would essentially force 200 million Americans off of private health insurance, "Trump said.
"You look at the fact that she wants open borders, health care for illegal immigrants, [she] champions ideas that are so far left and really so far out of touch with... so many things that people in this country agree with."

Warren has surged 8 percentage points since Quinnipiac’s previous national poll, which was conducted late last month, with Biden -- long considered the frontrunner in the race -- dropping seven points.
Trump told MacCallum she didn't know that many people who could "stand to vote for her."
