At a time when Donald Trump is widely attacked in the far right of the presidential campaign on his management of the coronavirus crisis which has killed more than 250,000 in the United States, it is Melania Trump, his wife, who is flying to his aid.
For the first time in the campaign, the ex-model of Slovenian origin climbed alone to the podium in a meeting in Atglen, Pennsylvania, a state whose results will be decisive for the November 3 election.
And the First Lady did the job by bringing a touch of humanity to her husband’s actions. “I don’t always agree with the way he says it,” said the First Lady to lighten the atmosphere of the assembly by causing laughter in the audience.
“We all know the American spirit is stronger than this virus”
But quickly, she attacks by starting with a message of compassion for the sick and dead of Covid-19.
“Like many of you, I have experienced the effects of Covid-19 directly, not only as a patient but also as a worried mother and wife,” she said, adding: “But I know that many people have lost loved ones or know people touched forever by this silent enemy. The thoughts and prayers of my family are with you all during this difficult time. “

Assuring that she had been touched by the messages of support, she reassured the crowd. “We all feel so much better now thanks to a healthy lifestyle and some of the amazing treatment options available in our country,” she said. And to conclude on this subject: “We all know that the American spirit is stronger than this virus. We have proven that we can and will overcome this unexpected challenge. “
But the First Lady has also been more virulent in defending the style and political record of her husband.
“It is important for him to speak directly to people,” she continued of Donald Trump’s frantic use of Twitter.
“Donald is a fighter. He loves this country and he fights for you every day. For the first time in history, the citizens of this country can hear their president directly and instantly every day through social networks, ”she insisted before attacking the Democrats.
“While the president took decisive action to ensure the safety of the American people, the Democrats were wasting American taxpayers’ money in a bogus impeachment procedure,” said before continuing. “This show was carried out by the opposition, and their display of hatred is still visible today” concluding: “the children who watch and learn politics in our country deserve a better demonstration of political responsibility and respect for our sacred institutions. “
According to her, Democrats “have chosen to put their own agendas before the welfare of the American people.” Instead, they try to create a division. A rift that causes confusion and fear instead of hope and security. It is not leadership. “
