White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary, Hogan Gidley also commented on the vacant seat, and reports that Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t want her seat filled until after the election.
WITN also asked Lara Trump about campaigning during a pandemic, especially since many of the attendees at the Women for Trump event weren’t wearing masks and not everyone practiced social distancing.
