First Lady Melania Trump is receiving praise for comments she made during a Monday rally in Miami, Florida where she and President Trump addressed Venezuelan-Americans.
During her speech, Melania said she would be praying for those Venezuelan natives who are worried about the wellbeing of the South American country.
“It is wonderful to be here today in the beautiful city of Miami,” the first lady said amid loud cheers from the crowd. “The president and I are honored to stand with all of you as we together support the people, great people of Venezuela.”
“I’m proud to be here with you in the United States of America as your First Lady,” she continued as the crowd hailed.
“Many of you in the room know what it feels like to be blessed with freedom after living under the oppression of socialism and communism.”
“In Venezuela, the people are on the brink of reclaiming their own liberty,” Melania said. “Today we must let the Venezuelan people hear us all with one united voice.”

Melania was an escapee of a socialist government as she was born in the Socialist Republic of Slovenia, the Washington Examiner reports:
Trump was born in Slovenia in 1970. In 1990, the Socialist Republic of Slovenia dropped the “socialist” part of its name but did not officially become an independent republic until 1991.
Trump became a permanent resident of the U.S. in 2001 and obtained citizenship in 2006.
