Melania Trump Gives RNC Speech, Which Wasn't Vetted by West Wing (Video)

Melania Trump Gives RNC Speech, Which Wasn't Vetted by West Wing (Video)

Melania Trump did things differently while preparing for her speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention on Tuesday night (August 25).

Speaking from her newly redone Rose Garden, the 50-year-old First Lady’s speech was not vetted by anyone in the West Wing, CNN reports.

It is also being reported that no one on President Donald Trump‘s staff approved the content that she would be speaking about. Typically, a first lady has a speech of this magnitude vetted by someone in the West Wing to make sure their messages align.

As she did during her 2016 RNC speech, Melania did not receive any help from professional speech writers, but instead had the majority of her remarks written by a senior aide.

Melania‘s speech was quite different from others speaking at the RNC, who used their time to slam Joe Biden and the “radical Democrats.” Instead, Melania spoke about the “beautiful side of humanity” she has seen during the pandemic, while also calling for unity.

“We must remember that today we are all one community comprised of many races, religions and ethnicities,” Melania said. “Our diverse and storied history is what makes our country strong, and yet we still have so much to learn from one another.”

In regards to her husband, Melania said, “In my husband, you have a president who will not stop fighting for you and your family. I see how hard he works each day and night and despite the unprecedented attacks from the media, he will not give up.”
