Former President Donald Trump made a surprise speech and it came with a political announcement. At the very least, it's a hint or suggestion if what Trump said is true.

As reported more formally:

Former president Donald Trump has fuelled speculation that his daughter-in-law Lara Trump will run for Senate in North Carolina.

Mr Trump made the off-hand comment during an impromptu speech at a Mar-A-Lago fundraiser for Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

There has been speculation for quite some time that Lara Trump, wife of Eric Trump, the former president’s second son, will make a run for the North Carolina Senate seat currently held by Richard Burr, who announced in 2016 that he will not seek re-election in 2022. Mr Burr voted to convict Mr Trump in his second impeachment trial.
The speech was shared on Twitter by WPTV reporter Tim Allan Walker.
