First Lady Melania Trump delivered the keynote address for the Republican National Convention on Tuesday evening, from the Rose Garden, and her words will no doubt go a very long way in convincing centrists on the fence about who to vote for come November, especially the female demographic.
Here’s what Mrs. Trump had to say via The Washington Examiner:
“My husband’s administration will not stop fighting until there is an effective treatment or vaccine,” she vowed. “Donald will not rest until he has done everything he can to help everyone impacted by this terrible pandemic.”
Trump expressed gratitude to medical professionals working at personal risk to themselves to help the afflicted. She also thanked military personnel, first responders, and their families, calling them “heroes” in their own right. Trump celebrated 100 years of women’s suffrage.
“I know I speak for my husband and the entire family when I say we have not forgotten the incredible people who were willing to take a chance on a businessman who had never worked in politics,” she said.
The first lady also took an opportunity to address the civil unrest and racial tension that is ripping apart the country, saying, “Like all of you, I have reflected on the racial unrest in our country. It’s a harsh reality. We are not proud of parts of our history.”
“Let us remember that we are one nation, under God, and we need to cherish one another,” Trump said.
This is a very true statement, simple, yet packed with profound truth. We as a nation have forgotten who we are. We’ve allowed the Democratic Party and progressives in culture to poison our hearts, souls, and minds with false narratives designed to divide us, because apart, we are weak and vulnerable.
It is far easier for them to prey on us when we aren’t standing shoulder-to-shoulder. Stealing away liberty is much easier with a divided population.
Let’s hope we can work our way back to being united as one people, citizens who judge not by the color of a person’s skin, but the content of their character.
