Melania Trump Condemns Capitol Hill Attack by powerfulguy: 5:15pm On Jan 11
Like all of you, I have reflected on the past year and how the invisible enemy, Covid-19, swept across our beautiful country. All Nations have experienced the loss of loved ones, economic pain, and the negative impacts of isolation.

As your First Lady, it has been inspiring to witness firsthand what the people of our great Nation will do for one another, especially when we are at our most vulnerable.

With nearly every experience I have had, I found myself carrying many individual’s stories home with me in my heart.

Most recently, my heart goes out to: Air Force Veteran, Ashli Babbitt, Benjamin Philips, Kevin Greeson, Roseanne Boyland, and Capitol Police Officers, Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood. I pray for their families comfort and strength during this difficult time.

I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.

Our Nation must heal in a civil manner. Make no mistake about it, I absolutely condemn the violence that has occurred on our Nation’s Capitol. Violence is never acceptable.

As an American, I am proud of our freedom to express our viewpoints without persecution. It is one of the paramount ideals which America is fundamentally built on. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect that right. With that in mind, I would like to call on the citizens of this country to take a moment, pause, and look at things from all perspectives.

I implore people to stop the violence, never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness. We must listen to one another, focus on what unites us, and rise above what divides us.

It is inspiring to see that so many have found a passion and enthusiasm in participating in an election, but we must not allow that passion to turn to violence. Our path forward is to come together, find our commonalities, and be the kind and strong people that I know we are.

Our country’s strength and character have revealed themselves in the communities that have been impacted by natural disasters and throughout this terrible pandemic that has affected all of us. The common thread in all of these challenging situations is American’s unwavering resolve to help one another. Your compassion has shown the true spirit of our country.

As I said over the summer, it is these defining moments that we will look back and tell our grandchildren that through empathy, strength, and determination, we were able to restore the promise of our future. Each of you are the backbone of this country. You are the people who continue to make the United States of America what it is, and who have the incredible responsibility of preparing our future generations to leave everything better than they found it.

It has been the honor of my lifetime to serve as your First Lady. I want to thank the millions of Americans who supported my husband and me over the past 4 years and shown the incredible impact of the American spirit. I am grateful to you all for letting me serve you on platforms which are dear to me.

Most importantly, I ask for healing, grace, understanding, and peace for our great Nation.

Every day let us remember that we are one Nation under God. God bless you all and God bless the United States of America.

Sincerely,

Melania Trump

First, the recent embarrassing events at US Capitol is a proof that certain political events in Africa don't happen because Africans have inferior brain but because most African leaders usually corner their countries' security system and compromise the leaders of judiciary and legislature. Unfortunately, as hangover from colonialism, our institutions still work for whoever in government against the people.

The truth is if Trump had the FBI and military on his side, the story would have been different today.

Second, if #EndSars protesters had invaded the National Assembly and vandalized it, the US officials would have insisted that the protesters must not be pushed back with force but through negotiations. And when force is applied with fatality like it happened in Capitol, sanctions will be threatened and ICJ and Amnesty International would be releasing indicting statements.

The irony in all of these is that racist Trump ended up showing that Caucasians are not superior race but they excelled simply because of some sane patriotic leaders.

It is better late than never. I still cringe watching her husband and her step son tell the rioters to go and sack the capitol.

Righteousness89 Rightousness2 come and pray for the one anointed by your Bishop o

We are eargerly waiting for Jan 20 to see if the world will come to an end as prophesied by your pastor

Lesson, politics is not a religious affair, it is a game of number! Stop going to church when you should vote.

Stop praying when you should vote, go and queue. Even Bishop Oyedepo casted his vote.

The gullible and religious dogma will believe any rvbbish!!

cool



We know it was prepared for her by her Media team, however the message is sensible and shows a smart woman... If it were to be Trump's speech, expect lies, subtle insults , arrogance and cockiness

So she can talk?

"I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda"

This sounds like she's pointing accusing fingers and throwing tantrums. grin
