U.S. First Lady Melania Trump has issued a farewell message as she prepares to leave the White House, noting that “violence is never the solution,” days after the assault on the seat of Congress by supporters of the president.
“Be passionate about everything you do. But always remember that violence is never the solution, and will never be justified,” he said.
In a six-minute official video address, she made only one reference to her husband as she paid tribute to the families of military personnel, health care workers and those who help victims of opioid abuse. “The last four years have been unforgettable,” says Melania Trump, a 50-year-old former model.
“As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have kept in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and determination. “When I arrived at the White House, I reflected on the responsibility I have always had as a mother to encourage, strengthen and teach the values of goodness,” she added.
On January 6, hundreds of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, the seat of Congress, to try to block the officialization of Joe Biden’s November presidential victory.
Trump, who called on his supporters to march on Capitol Hill, was charged by the House of Representatives with “inciting insurrection” and will face impeachment in the Senate.
The president has refused for months to accept the election result, baselessly claiming fraud, and has failed to congratulate Biden.
The outgoing president and his wife also have not invited Biden and his wife Jill to the White House, a tradition in the United States, and will not attend the Democrat’s inauguration ceremony on Wednesday.
“The promise of this nation belongs to all of us who never lose sight of our integrity and values, take every opportunity to show consideration for others and adopt good habits in our daily lives,” Melania Trump said.
