Hoke County’s ‘Diamond and Silk’ appear with Lara Trump in Fayetteville


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — With just seven days left until the election — both sides are working hard to get people to the polls.

On the Republican side, the Women For Trump bus tour made a stop in Fayetteville on Tuesday.

On board was Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who is a North Carolina native and N.C. State grad.

Lara Trump, who was born near Wilmington, realizes that knows North Carolina is important for a Trump win.

“North Carolina has a very unique position in this election… this is the most important state to me, obviously, being from North Carolina,” Trump said.

“We feel real good. I cant believe we are 7 days away. We are all very excited,” she added.

Also on board were two Hoke County women who support Trump, who are known as “Diamond and Silk” on social media.

The two women are sisters from Raeford who have been featured at many Trump rallies.

Their real names are Lynnette Hardaway (Diamond) and Rochelle Richards (Silk) and describe themselves as former Democrats.

The pair have developed a large social media following with 160,000 Twitter followers and an active YouTube channel.

They made their first appearance on stage at a Trump rally in Raleigh in December 2015.
