Melania directly attacked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden over the Coronavirus, claiming: “Now it’s suggesting that he could have done a better job. Well, the American people can look at Joe Biden over 36 years in Congress and eight years as vice president and determine if they are.” They think he will finally be able to do something for the American people. ”
The first lady also spoke about her family’s struggle with the virus and showed her sympathy for those suffering from the virus – something President Donald Trump rarely does at rallies.
“Like many of you, I have experienced the immediate effects of Covid-19 – not just as a patient – but as an anxious mother and wife. I know there are many people who have lost loved ones or known people who have been affected by this silent enemy,” Melania Trump said in Pennsylvania. “.
Every modern first lady who held this position before Melania Trump has proven to be an important and influential surrogate on behalf of their husbands. The president is particularly looking for the voices of a white suburban woman, a group with whom the first lady may have some appeal.
Melania Trump has proven herself to be a pretty at-home person without a taste for campaigns or political speeches, according to several sources. Her last appearance at a Trump rally was in June 2019, where she made brief remarks at the start of her husband’s re-election efforts. Her last single event in support of the Trump campaign was nearly four years ago, also in Pennsylvania, just days before the election.
At one point, the first lady also addressed accountability and linked it to the Democrats’ response to Covid-19.
Nobody should promote fear of real solutions for purely political ends … The Democrats have chosen to set their own agendas on the well-being of the American people. Instead, they try to create a gap. A division in something should be non-partisan and non-controversial .. division It causes confusion and fear instead of hope and safety .. This is not leadership.
“Let’s also not forget what the Democrats chose to focus on when Covid-19 first came to our country. And while the president was taking decisive action to keep the American people safe, the Democrats were wasting American taxpayers’ money in a phony trial,” she added.
Melania Trump also referred to her husband’s presence on social media, saying: “For the first time in history, citizens of this country listen directly and instantly to their president every day through social media.”
Then she added, “I don’t always agree with the way he says things, but it is important for him to speak directly to the people he serves.”
“This administration chooses to move forward during this epidemic, not backward,” she said.
The first lady also asked participants to follow US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines – despite the fact that the crowd at the indoor event was not socially distant, most of the attendees wore masks.
