Melania Trump revelation: President Donald has yet to mention FLOTUS's 'Be Best' initiative in State of the Union
It is that time of the year where President Donald Trump makes the first State of the Union address for 2020. As that time approaches, a report reveals that Trump has yet to mention his wife Melania Trump’s Be Best initiative.
Politico reports that Trump is approaching his fourth State of the Union address, but all throughout his time as President, he has yet to mention his wife’s anti-bullying initiative. This comes as a stark contrast to what his predecessors did during their State of the Union addresses, which was to always acknowledge the work of their wives as they uphold their duties as First Ladies. A review of the transcripts from Trump’s previous addresses showed nothing about Melania’s work for her campaign.
It is possible that Trump’s speechwriters intentionally left that out of his addresses so as he would not be subject to further ridicule by the public both in and out of social media. This is especially because Trump has a tendency to go on rants on Twitter while resorting to insults towards people whose opinions differ from his own. A former speechwriter for former President Barack Obama commented that Trump’s speechwriters are likely fully aware that Trump talking about anti-bullying campaigns is very ironic. “You don’t want people laughing in the middle of a State of the Union address.”
It is possible that Melania may have also suggested that her husband not mention that either, perhaps for the same possible reasons that he would not get ridiculed even more.
Meanwhile, Trump is currently faced with possible impeachment as the Senate impeachment trial is currently underway. The President is being charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, in line with the current scandal surrounding the millions of dollars worth of military aid, which was later revealed to be linked to the supposed investigations into his political rivals, especially former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
CNN reports that Alan Dershowitz, who is among those who will be speaking in defense of Trump at the Senate, called Trump corrupt back in 2016 during the elections, and has repeatedly said that Trump may continue being corrupt as president. During the time, Dershowitz was a very vocal supporter of Trump’s rival, former First Lady Hillary Clinton.
In response to his previous comments now, Dershowitz stated that he was campaigning for Clinton at the time. “I didn’t know Trump, I knew Clinton.”
