Melanie Trump spoke today at a ceremony for new legal immigrants in Washington, D.C.
“It is an honor to stand with you…. in front of the Declaration of Independence.”
She shared the following:
“It is my privilege to share America, this great nation, with you… Obstacles often stand in the way of our goals. We persevere because we understand that conquering them will provide great access to personal development, fulfillment, and even eventually, self-actualization,” said Melania.
“For me, reaching the milestone of American citizenship marked the sunrise of certainty. At that exact moment, I forever discarded the layer of burden connected with whether I would be able to live in the United States. I hope you are blanketed with similar feelings of comfort right now.”
Speaking about her upbringing in Slovenia, Melania said her parents instilled her with the work ethic to pursue a modeling career while following the rules and regulations that challenged her to confront legal citizenship in the U.S.
