Melania Trump Praised for Lighting White House up in Blue for National Police Week
For National Police Week, the White House decided to do something special. The First Lady of the United States took to Twitter to reveal that they’d honored fallen police officers on Thursday.
First Lady Melania and President Donald Trump had the White House lit blue to honor fallen police officers for National Police Week. The first lady took to Twitter to share an image of the White House glowing in blue at night.
She captioned the image with a heartfelt tribute that read:
“The @WhiteHouse is lit blue tonight in remembrance and honor of our fallen law enforcement officers. Thank you to all the men and women in law enforcement who work hard to keep us safe. #NationalPoliceWeek”
The courage & sacrifice of our heroes is the reason our flag stands tall, our hearts beat with pride, and our Country remains one people, one family, and one NATION UNDER GOD. Today, we thank you, we honor you, & we forever cherish the memory of our Fallen Men and Women in Blue! pic.twitter.com/ARHYgDVi3M— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2019
The day before, her husband pledged to “never leave the side” of families who had lost members in combat. He also issued a statement in honor of law enforcement officers.
We stand firmly, strongly, and proudly with the incredible men and women of law enforcement. You do not hear it nearly enough, but Americans across this Country love you, support you, and respect you more than you could possibly know! #PeaceOfficersMemorialDay pic.twitter.com/T0qB5zN7WG— Donald J.

The president’s statement read: “On Peace Officers Memorial Day and throughout Police Week, we express our unending gratitude to our Nation’s law enforcement officers.” He continued: “Those brave men and women selflessly confront danger to protect our families and defend our communities.”

Besides the love she receives from her husband and the American people, Melania also has a number one confidante. Her best friend happens to be her sister, Ines Knauss.
Over the years, Knauss has surprised and delighted social media users by sharing childhood photos of Melania and their family. While giving a speech at the Republican National Convention in the past, the first lady gave some insight into her sister.
Melania described her as “an incredible woman.” That hopefully means she isn’t too embarrassed about the throwback photos.
