United States first lady, Melania Trump has given a live speech from the white house to the Republican party convention to address racism and other violent behaviors.
She stood to condemn such attitudes from her people and urges all to stay in harmony.
“I urge people to come together in a civil manner… stop the violence and looting being done in the name of justice.”
First Lady Melania Trump made a plea for racial harmony in the wake of protests over the shooting of unarmed black men by police.
She called upon Americans to reflect on the history of slavery in the US, and “never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin”.
As the final speaker on night two of the Republican National Convention, Trump ended her speech with an endorsement of her husband, President Trump, and encouraged Americans to vote for him.
