According to Lara Trump, federal workers who've gone a month without pay are experiencing "a little bit of pain."

About 800,000 federal workers are in their 33rd day of a government shutdown, with many struggling financially due to the lack of paychecks, but Lara Trump wrote off their “little bit of pain” as necessary to achieve something “so much bigger than any one person.”

Lara Trump, daughter-in-law of the president and wife of Eric Trump, made the comments during an interview with the right-leaning web show Bold TV on Monday, according to Newsweek.

“We get that this is unfair to you, but this is so much bigger than any one person. It is a little bit of pain, but it’s going to be for the future of our country and their children and their grandchildren and generations after that will thank them for their sacrifice right now,” said Trump.

Lara Trump, who hosts Trump Production's Real News Update acknowledged that federal workers were unable to pay their bills and rent, but said that in the end, it would be worth it.

“I know it’s hard, I know they have bills to pay, they have mortgages, they have rents that are due, but the president is trying every single day to come up with a good solution here and the reality is it’s been something that has gone on for too long and gone unaddressed,” she said. “I would just tell them, please stay strong, we appreciate everything that you’re sacrificing, we’re behind you and we are going to do everything that we can, I know the president is doing everything he can to resolve this quickly.”
