These Tweets About Melania Trump’s Response To The Capitol Riot Are Simply, Wow – Thebritishjournal

The first lady is finally breaking her silence five days after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in an apparent attempt to interrupt lawmakers certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win. On Monday, Jan. 11, Melania Trump released an official statement titled “Our Path Forward” in which she reflected on the events that rocked the nation. Surprisingly, Melania Trump’s response to the Capitol riot didn’t mention her husband’s role in inciting it, and instead went in on the “unwarranted personal attacks” she’d experienced in the aftermath. Elite Daily reached out to the White House for further comment on the statement, as well as on President Trump’s role in instigating the riot, but did not hear back at the time of publication.

Trump’s belated statement, which came after the Jan. 6 resignations of many White House staffers, including the East Wing’s chief of staff Stephanie Grisham and White House social secretary Anna Cristina Niceta in light of the riot, began with a reflection on the past year and the “invisible enemy” COVID-19 before addressing the attack on the Capitol.

Trump acknowledged those who had died during the attack in her first mention of the Jan. 6 riot, conspicuously choosing to name Trump supporters who’d been killed while attempting to storm the Capitol before two fallen Capitol Police officers.

“Most recently, my heart goes out to: Air Force Veteran, Ashli Babbitt, Benjamin Philips, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland, and Capitol Police Officers, Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood,” she wrote. “I pray for their families comfort and strength during this difficult time.” Elite Daily reached out to the White House for comment on this mention in the statement, but did not hear back at the time of publication.
