This was great all around!
Melania Trump doesn’t take the stage too often, but when she does its a special occassion!
She did so today in Miami, as President Trump gave a speech decrying socialism and supporting the Venezuelan people as they try to free themselves from their dictator.
Our First Lady made clear that this was a cause near and dear to her heart (after coming to the U.S. from a formerly socialist country), so taking the stage had special meaning to her.
And she didn’t just do a simple introduction either….she gave a bunch of remarks first!
Watch the incredible event here:
Express had more on the speech from Melania:
Taking to the stage to introduce her husband, Mrs Trump decried communism while telling Venezuelan-Americans that she understands what it is like to live without freedom. According to the Washington Examiner, Mrs Trump said: “Many of you in the room know what it feels like to be blessed with freedom after living under the oppression of socialism and communism.” Her surprise appearance comes as tensions in Venezuela continue to grow amid an ongoing row between the country’s former president and current interim leader.
She added: “Today we must let the Venezuelan people hear us all with one united voice.
“There's hope. We are free and we pray together loudly and proudly that soon the people of Venezuela will be free as well.
"My husband is here today because he cares deeply about the current suffering in Venezuela."
Mrs Trump was born in 1970 in Slovenia, where she faced the difficulties of war and oppression.
And from the Washington Examiner:
First lady Melania Trump took the stage at a Miami rally Monday to introduce her husband and told Venezuelan-Americans that she, too, knows what it is like to have lived without freedom.
"Many of you in the room know what it feels like to be blessed with freedom after living under the oppression of socialism and communism," Trump told the Miami audience in a rare public appearance.
Trump was born in Slovenia in 1970. In 1990, the Socialist Republic of Slovenia dropped the "socialist" part of its name but did not officially become an independent republic until 1991.
Trump became a permanent resident of the U.S. in 2001 and obtained citizenship in 2006.
She told Venezuelan-Americans that their family and friends back home are "on the brink of reclaiming their own liberty."
"Today we must let the Venezuelan people hear us all with one united voice. There's hope. We are free and we pray together loudly and proudly that soon the people of Venezuela will be free as well," said Trump. "My husband is here today because he cares deeply about the current suffering in Venezuela."
While she doesn't take the stage very often, she has done it a couple times before.
