Donald Trump shocked his supporters with a surprise appearance and an impromptu speech at a fundraiser for a dog charity.
The former president’s unannounced appearance took place on Friday night as he joined the fundraiser for Big Dog Ranch Rescue, a dog charity that focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned and mistreated dogs.
Taking to the stage much to the amusement of his supporters, Trump revealed that he came unprepared before announcing that his daughter-in-law is running for Senate.
“I didn’t exactly prepare for this, but I was walking by, and I heard everyone screaming,” the 45th US President said while the crowd cheered him on.
Thanking Lara Trump, who reportedly helped organize the fundraising event, the former president added: “I want to thank Lara, who’s been so incredible.”
Mr Trump then also went on to confirm the rumors surrounding his daughter-in-law’s career as he revealed she’s running for Senate next year.
“I don’t know, you’re running for the Senate. I hear she’s going to run for the Senate!” Trump proclaimed.
While Lara Trump has yet to officially confirm her run for the Senate seat, she has so far not ruled out the possibility.
During his short speech, Donald also praised the fundraiser and its goal as he said it was a “great” and “important” event.
“I’m with you 100 percent. We had many meetings in the White House and the Oval Office having to do with saving and helping dogs!” Trump added, prompting the audience to cheer loudly.
The fundraiser was hosted by Big Dog Ranch Rescue founder and president, Lauree Simmons, who aimed to raise half a million in order to rescue five hundred dogs from China and give them a better life in the US.
