The event took place a day before both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were scheduled to visit the Twin Cities and focused on the message of turning Minnesota red in 2020.
‘We’re going to do it here in Minnesota by the way in 2020,’ said Lara Trump.
She added: ‘I think if you’re a young woman and you’re on the fence, you need to look at the facts you need to look at the fact when you come out of college or high school or starting a family, this is a President that cares about your pocketbook.’
Karen Pence insisted that the President had ’empowered women like no other.’ She added: ‘All these young women here today, that is the future of our country and this president cares.’

Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s son Eric, touched on a variety of issues including the economy and immigration.
She acknowledged: ‘We know it’s not easy sometimes to be a Trump supporter.’
The ‘Women for Trump’ movement was started by Lara Trump in 2016 while campaigning for her father-in-law.
