Melania Trump attacked him during the first solo trip of Joe Biden and the US media in the 2020 U.S. election in Philadelphia and called on the Democratic presidential candidate Nominate him for his “socialist agenda.”
Melania turned her guns towards the Democrats, defending her husband Donald Trump for the way his administration handled the coronavirus crisis while at the same time, telling supporters the Democrats tried to “put their own agendas ahead of the American people’s well-being”.
Like her husband, Melania took jibes at the media, accusing them of covering “idle gossip and palace intrigue” while referring to Joe Biden’s policies as a “socialist agenda”.
“We must keep Donald in the White House so he can finish what he’s started and our country can continue to flourish,” she said.
The first lady expressed sympathy for the victims of the coronavirus. She said: “There are many people who have lost their loved ones or have known people who have been affected by this silent enemy forever”.
However, she said that Donald Trump handled the coronavirus well, and restaurants, hotels and other public places learned to operate safely during the pandemic.
“We don’t close down and hide in fear. We get to work to find real and lasting solutions,” she said.
Melania is talking to hundreds of supporters, crowded in the converted barn normally used for weddings. Most attendees wear masks, but there is no social distancing when people stand together.
