Melania Trump sent out a seasonal tweet wishing everyone "a very happy Thanksgiving on Thursday." 


The First Lady of the United States joined her husband earlier this week when the two kicked off the season with the Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon.

They are expected to dine at their Mar-a-Largo estate. But early in the morning, Melania shared the message and tagged it with a turkey emoticon at the end. The post can be viewed below.


The post read: 

"Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving! As we give thanks, let's keep those who can't be with their families in our thoughts today. #Thanksgiving." 

As it goes, some took issue with Melania addressing people who "can't be with their families." 


They pointed to the order from President Donald Trump to have troops at the border. Instead of being with their families, they will be coordinating the caravan migrants. 

Others compared Donald's lack of on-hand assistance to Barack Obama's recent visit to a food depository in Chicago.



There, the former president repackaged potatoes with 60 other volunteers. They would be sent out to around 700 community distribution sites.

While many averted to the First Lady's husband, others had harsh remarks about Melania's outfit at the Turkey Pardon on Wednesday. 


Melania was adorned in $9,400 Dior dress which featured a loud geometric pattern. Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri was the creator behind the statement piece. 

In addition, the 48-year-old wore knee-high stiletto boots. She looked stunning, but some were not for it. 


Critics determined that the outfit was overly formal and too loud for the event. Some simply made fun of her by comparing Melania to a turkey herself. 

Yet others claimed that Melania was stealing a page out of Michelle Obama's book. The former first lady used to wear geometric designs regularly. 

Hopefully, Thanksgiving celebrations will overshadow most negativity as many families come together to celebrate and share love.
