Lara Trump on Thursday disputed a report that former President Trump has been telling associates that he believes he will be reinstated at the White House in August.

"As far as I know, there are no plans for Donald Trump to be in the White House in August. Maybe there's something I don't know," Lara Trump said on "Fox & Friends."

"But no, I think that that is a lot of folks getting a little worked up about something just because maybe there wasn't enough pushback, you know, from the Republican side," she added. "So no, I have not heard any plans for Donald Trump to be installed in the White House in August."

The comments follow a report that former President Trump has been telling allies that he plans on being reinstated to the presidency in August, remarks that come as he continues to make unsubstantiated claims that there was widespread fraud that tainted the November presidential race against him.

The former president's allies have taken up the call, with Republicans across the U.S. voicing concerns over the 2020 vote tally. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn appeared to suggest during a conference in Texas that a Myanmar-like coup "should happen."

The Myanmar military staged a coup in February, removing leader Aung San Suu Kyi following her party's reelection.

Flynn has denied the suggestion that a similar coup should occur in the U.S.

Lara Trump, who is married to the former president's son, Eric Trump, is the most prominent member of the former president's orbit to dispute the report. She previously served on her father-in-law's campaigns and is mulling her own Senate bid in North Carolina.
