WASHINGTON DC: First lady Melania Trump in a live speech from the White house has made a plea for racial unity at Republican National Concention.
The normally limelight-shunning US first lady delivered Tuesday evening’s keynote address before a small audience, including her husband, in the Rose Garden of the White House.
“Stop the violence and looting,” she also said as protests continued over a police shooting in Wisconsin.
She said “like all of you, I have reflected on the racial unrest in our country.”
“It is a harsh reality, that we are not proud of parts of our history. I encourage people to focus on our future while still learning from our past. “
We must remember that today we are all one community comprised of many races, religions and ethnicities” First lady added.
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.”
