WATCH FULL SPEECH: First Lady Melania Trump has closed out the second night of the Republican National Convention with a stirring speech praising her husband’s tenacity and describing her own path of US citizenship.
Her remarks were noticeably apolitical and also touched on the COVID-19 pandemic, which has so far infected more than 5 million Americans and killed 170,000.
“I want to acknowledge the fact that since March, our lives have changed drastically,” Mrs Trump said.
“My deepest sympathy goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one and my prayers with those who are suffering.”
Mrs Trump’s live speech took place on the grounds of the White House Rose Garden which she recently renovated.
