During an appearance Saturday, First Lady Melania Trump said “while journalists who have now become the political propaganda tool of swamp politicians and the left choose to focus only on the negative, we have chosen to focus on the American people and the future.”
The first lady also praised her husband’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, speaking at a “Make America Great Again” rally in Wisconsin in support of President Donald Trump’s bid for re-election.
“This administration has worked tirelessly to support families and people struggling financially during this pandemic while Democrats in Congress refuse to sign another stimulus package,” first lady Melania0 said to a crowd of about 250 in West Bend, north of Milwaukee.
“Such selfish, politically corrupt decisions are what separate the swamp politicians from President Trump and his administration.”
She contrasted former Vice President Joe Biden’s comments that this will be a “dark winter” with her husband’s continued push forward, saying Biden wants the U.S. to operate out of fear. She also accused the media, Democrats and Biden of attacking the president and his administration.
“We have made great progress in our fight against COVID-19,” the first lady said. “I watched Donald continue to work hard to keep people informed and calm, to protect our economy and make hard and unpopular decisions to do all he could to keep us all safe.”
