continuation of lasker trap

i guess white is just safe?

After the exchange of queens, the e5 pawn is isolated and advanced too much so it will be easily lost, so imagine the position without the e5 pawn. White can have the chances of draw but can't win(if blacks blunders thats a different case). Anyways its kind of safe.

Yes it is relatively safe compared to other variations for White.
