WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump’s wife will be making a rare appearance on the campaign trail with just days to go before Election Day.

Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tweets that Melania Trump will deliver a speech Thursday in suburban Pennsylvania.

It will be her first appearance on the campaign trail since her speech at the Republican National Convention.

That speech was well-received. But it was quickly overshadowed with allegations that she had plagiarized sections from a speech given by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Trump has taken an unusually behind-the-scenes role in the election, choosing to stay home with her son instead of joining her husband on the trail.

The campaign did not immediately respond to questions about the topic of the speech or whether she would be accompanied by her husband. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
