First Lady Melania Trump expressed her “disappointed” and shared that she is “disheartened” by the violent event at the Capitol and calls for a state of “healing.”

“I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.”

“Our Nation must heal in a civil manner. Make no mistake about it, I absolutely condemn the violence that has occurred on our Nation’s Capitol. Violence is never acceptable.”

“Stop the violence, never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness.”

“It is inspiring to see that so many have found a passion and enthusiasm in participating in an election, but we must not allow that passion to turn to violence,” the first lady continued. “Our path forward is to come together, find our commonalities, and be the kind and strong people that I know we are.”

Mrs. Trump said her “heart goes out” to the victims and she prayed “for their families comfort and strength during this difficult time.” She then finished with this plea:

“Most importantly, I ask for healing, grace, understanding, and peace for our great Nation.”

“Every day let us remember that we are one Nation under God. God bless you all and God bless the United States of America.”
