US HEADLINES:

Melania Trump has urged Americans to ‘practice safe, responsible behaviors’ during the upcoming holiday season as she barnstormed the Midwest for her husband’s reelection campaign on Saturday. 

The First Lady made the remarks during a speech delivered to a crowd of supporters at Kingsheart Farm in West Bend, Wisconsin

Almost all of FLOTUS‘ fans appeared to have heeded her advice and were seen wearing face masks while packed close together listening to the address. 

‘For families participating in Halloween festivities this year, I encourage you to visit the CDC website to read the latest safety guidelines,’ Melania stated.

‘As we approach the holiday season, we must all do our part to ensure we practice responsible, safe behaviors.’

The First Lady’s comments come after America recorded its highest daily number of coronavirus infections since the pandemic began.  On Friday, more than 99,000 people tested positive to the virus in the space of just 24 hours.

She then turned her attention towards the Democrats, blasting left-wing politicians for questioning the safety and efficacy of a vaccine that could be released under the Trump Administration. 

‘Shame on anyone who casts doubt on the potential effectiveness of a vaccine just because it would come under my husband’s leadership,’ FLOTUS fumed. 

‘The success of a vaccine will save millions of lives and we should all work towards that together as one nation.’

The glamorous First Lady – who bundled up against the Midwest autumnal chill in a long, dark coat – also ripped into congressional Democrats, accusing them of ‘selfishly’ holding up financial aid for needy Americans. 

‘This Administration has worked tirelessly to support families and people struggling financially during this pandemic while Democrats in Congress refuse to sign another stimulus package,’ she raged. 

‘Such selfish, politically corrupt decisions are what separate the swamp politicians from President Trump and his Administration.’

However, Melania saved her most pointed attacks for her husband’s Presidential rival, Joe Biden, accusing him of ‘hiding in his basement’ and claiming he would send the country back into a lockdown. 

‘Joe Biden said this will be a dark winter. That is not the statement of a leader. He wants to make us hide in fear in our basements rather than work bravely within our communities to find lasting solutions. His solution is to move backwards and to shut things down,’ the First Lady stated. 

‘Joe Biden says he could do a better job leading our great nation. Apparently when you hide in a basement, you feel safe communicating your wishful thinking.’ 

Melania painted her husband in contrast to Biden, saying he was interested in opening up and looking toward the future.   

‘We now have careful safety measures in place in every city and state. These safety measures allow our children to get back in the classroom. This President is focused on not just destroying the virus, but creating ways for people to safely start gathering with friends again. This is about mental health as much as it is about the physical well-being of people.’

 The First Lady has only just returned to the campaign trail following her coronavirus diagnosis. 

She appeared on stage with Donald in Florida and North Carolina on Thursday, and will now head to Pennsylvania on a last-minute blitz of several must-win swing states. 

 Trump won both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in 2016, becoming the  first Republican presidential candidate in more than 20 years to win the two states and destroying the Democrats’ ‘blue wall’ in the Midwest.

However, Melania has stepped up in her push to help her husband to secure four more years in the White House, with polls showing Biden leads in both states. 

According to a RealClearPolitics , Biden leads by an average of four points in Pennsylvania and by six points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls in Wisconsin.
