CLEVELAND (AP) — It’s a rare campaign appearance for Melania Trump — and she’s telling her life story to the crowd at the Republican National Committee.
She’s a former model who moved to the United States from Slovenia. She’s recounting how she became a U.S. citizen and she’s citing “the love in the Trump family.”
Melania Trump is the first of several of Donald Trump’s family members who are on the list of speakers at the Cleveland convention this week. Their appearances are an attempt to humanize the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
She has thanked the crowd for “the warm welcome” and said her husband was “moved by this great honor.”
Melania Trump says she and her husband “love America very much” and that she, more than anyone, knows what she’s calling the “the simple goodness” of her husband’s heart.
