MELANIA TRUMP: For the first time in history, the citizens of this country get to hear directly and instantly from their president every single day through social media. I do not always agree with the way he says things, but it is important to him that he speaks directly to the people he serves. This administration chooses to keep moving forward during this pandemic, not backward.

Our administration remains 100% supportive of ensuring our nation is equipped with all the medical supplies we need and getting a vaccine developed and distributed as safely and quickly as possible. This is something that both political parties should support, encourage, and celebrate. No one should be promoting fear of real solutions for purely political ends.

Before my husband decided to run for president, the media loved him because they saw the man that I see every day, someone tough, successful, and fair.

- And handsome!

MELANIA TRUMP: I agree.
