Just hours before First Lady Melania Trump departs the White House for the last time, she issued a stunning farewell address to her fans and to America which further proves she is one of the classiest women to ever hold the position.
According to Breitbart, the first lady reflected on her time working by her husband’s side and shared her feelings about all of the wonderful things they managed to accomplish while thanking her supporters for sticking with her the entire time.
“The past four years have been unforgettable,” she said. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all of the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism, and determination.”
In the wake of the Capitol riots and the toll it took on America, the first lady indirectly acknowledged the tragic events of that day, focusing on a message of tamping down the violence.
“Be passionate in everything you do, but always remember that violence is never the answer and will never be justified,” Trump said.
She spent a large portion of her goodbye speech thanking frontline Americans for excelling at their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, when Americans needed truck drivers, doctors, nurses and teachers more than ever before.
“When I think about these meaningful experiences I’m humbled to have the opportunities to represent a nation with such kind and generous people,” the first lady said while also paying tribute to members of the U.S military and thanking them and their families for the sacrifices made to keep America safe.
She signed off on her farewell address by expressing gratitude and assuring all Americans that they’ll remain in her heart as the country moves forward.
“No words can express the depth of my gratitude for the privilege of having served as your First Lady. To all the people of this country: You will be in my heart forever. Thank you. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America,” the first lady said.
