- Melania Trump asked Americans to vote for President Donald Trump for a second time, arguing he had demonstrated good leadership
- The First Lady said under President Trump, America's economy grew and the taxation burden was reduced
- She described the president's opponent, Joe Biden, as "a politician with empty words and broken promises”
President Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, has urged Americans to elect a president with a proven track record and refuse to be hoodwinked into electing a leader with no known agenda.
In an apparent reference to Trump's fierce opponent, Joe Biden of the Democratic Party, Melania asked electorates to reject "a career politician with empty words".
Her sentiment came in the backdrop of a neck-to-neck race between the Trump and Biden with the latter leading with a slight margin.
"You deserve a president with proven results, not a career politician with empty words and broken promises,” she said on Tuesday, November 4.
The First Lady spoke shortly after casting her vote in Palm Beach, Florida. Melania has been vouching for Trump's re-election bid in a series of political rallies since the campaigns commenced.
On Monday, October 3, she addressed electorates at Huntersville in North Carolina shortly after Trump spoke in Fayetteville. She lobbied for her husband's bid, saying under his leadership America's economy grew and taxation burden was reduced.
"Under President Donald Trump, our economy soared, we got rid of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and created the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), cut taxes and created Space Force," she said.
As the voting and counting process approaches the homestretch, both Trump and Biden are upbeat about winning the presidency. As earlier reported by Briefly.co.za, Biden has taken an early lead in most of the states with Trump trailing him at a close range.
Section of experts had predicted that Biden will start leading based on the assumption that most votes that will be counted first in most states are absentee ballots.
Most people who participated in early voting were leaning towards the former vice president.
Trump has, however, threatened to move to court to stop the counting, arguing Democrats were rigging.
