Melania Trump said goodbye this Monday, two days before leaving the White House, with a message in which she urged U.S. citizens to “choose love of hate” and “peace to violence”.
The terms of Melania’s farewell are in contrast to the atmosphere of tension in the country, following the assault on the Capitol by supporters of her husband on January 6, which left five dead.
In a video, distributed by the White House, with a duration of seven minutes, Melania said: “We must focus on everything that unites us, overcome what divides us and always choose love of hate, peace to violence”.
Despite these kind words, the Trumps (Donald and Melania) will break one of the oldest traditions of presidential investiture and leave the White House without receiving their successors, Democrat Joe Biden and his wife, Jill.
Moreover, Donald Trump has yet to recognize Joe Biden’s electoral victory, on the November 3 ballot, and maintains the allegations, never proven and rejected in various courts, of “electoral fraud”.
Biden had six million more citizen votes than Trump and 306 votes from the Electoral College, while Trump stood at 232. Joe Biden’s investiture ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, the 20th. The security of the ceremony forced the displacement of more than 20,000 National Guard personnel to Washington.
