Melania Trump: ‘We All Know The American Spirit Is Stronger Than This Virus’
The First Lady said she understood how much personal loss many have suffered.
“I know there are many people who have lost loved ones or know people who have been forever impacted by this silent enemy,” Trump continued.
“My family’s thoughts and prayers are with all of you through this difficult time.”
The First Lady has first hand knowledge of the virus, having tested positive herself for COVID-19 in October.
Her husband President Donald Trump had it. Her son Barron had it.
Members of their administration staff and their families had it.
When they finally tested negative, President Trump emerged looking stronger than ever.
Similarly, Melania Trump said on Tuesday that COVID-19 and the pandemic it has cause was no match for the “American spirit.”
“We all know the American spirit is stronger than this virus,” Trump said.
“We have proven that we can and will overcome this unexpected challenge.”
In the last week of campaigning before the election, both presidential camps are bringing out the big guns.
Barack Obama is scheduled to stump for 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden throughout the week.
