Melania Trump mocked for ‘insincere’ speech of ‘love over hate’ as Jill prepares take over

Melania Trump: Expert discusses comments on Capitol riot

Ms Trump shared her final video address as First Lady on social media ahead of President Donald Trump’s last day in office on Wednesday. In a six-minute video, Ms Trump seemed to condemn the Capitol Hill riots as she stressed “violence is never the answer and will never be justified”.

She added: “In all circumstances, I ask every American to be an ambassador of be best, to focus on what unites us, to rise above what divides us, to always choose love over hatred, peace over violence, and others before yourself.

“Together, as one national family, we can continue to be the light of hope for future generations and carry on America’s legacy of rising our nation to greater heights through our spirit of courage, goodness, and grace.”

But Ms Trump faced vicious criticism from Twitter users who claimed Ms Trump would “not be missed”.

Referencing Ms Trump’s Be Best initiative and attaching a photograph of Barack and Michelle Obama greeting the Trumps, one person wrote: “You spout ‘Be Best’, then behave as rudely as possible, ignoring all traditions & norms.

“Get out of here. These people symbolise the Be Best spirit when you were moving in.”

Another Twitter user added: “I’m so beyond thrilled your reign as first lady is toast.

“Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

A third user said: “Farewell and good riddance to Melania Trump, who has been the most useless First Lady in American history.

“She never had any real interest in the job. Her passion was fashion and looking the part.

“She brought nothing to the table and #BeBest was a joke. She will not be missed.”

Another user suggested Mr Trump’s wife did not “look or sound sincere” in her address.

The speech comes after Ms Trump broke a 100-year-old White House tradition by not offering incoming First Lady Jill Biden a tour of the executive residence.

Several US publications reported that the outgoing First Lady and President Trump will not personally welcome Joe and Jill Biden to the White House on his inauguration day.

A source told CNN the White House chief usher Timothy Harleth will greet Mr Biden and his family instead.
