Afrinity Production brings to you the speech of the first lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump.
The US first lady delivered Tuesday evening’s keynote address before a small audience, including her husband, in the Rose Garden of the White House.
“Like all of you, I have reflected on the racial unrest in our country,” she said.
“It is a harsh reality that we are not proud of parts of our history. I encourage you to focus on the future while still learning from the past.”
“Stop the violence and looting,” she also said as protests continued over a police shooting in Wisconsin.
Mrs Trump urged Americans to stop making assumptions based on race and reflected candidly on US history.
She added: “I urge people to come together in a civil manner so we can work and live up to our standard American ideals.
“I also ask people to stop the violence and looting being done in the name of justice, and never make assumptions based on the colour of a person’s skin.”
