Melania Trump Wishes People a Happy Easter and Reads 'The Little Rabbit' Story
Melania Trump bypassed an in-person celebration and took to using virtual means to celebrate the White House Easter Egg Roll. Let's listen in on a bedroom story.
The First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, is doing her part this year to celebrate Easter. Although the coronavirus meant traditional celebrations were canceled, she did a reading on Sunday.
The 49-year-old opened by wishing viewers a Happy Easter. She then announced she'd be reading from one of her favorite children's books, "The Little Rabbit," by Nicola Killen.
Easter reading from Melania
The First Lady proceeded to spend a few minutes reading the short story. The gorgeous brunette sat on a white bench near a woven basket of colorful Easter eggs.
She wore a green long-sleeved dress with double breasted pockets that came down to just above her knees. She paired the outfit with matching pumps and wore minimal jewelry.
At the end of her story, Trump said, "I hope you're able to enjoy this special holiday and be sure to take care of yourselves and each other." Happy Easter to the First Lady and her family.
White House cancels Egg Roll
The Easter Egg Roll cancelation was announced earlier in March in an official statement from the White House website. The announcement included a quote from Trump.
Happy Easter! While I am not able to read to children during the #WHEasterEggRoll, I would still like to honor the annual tradition & share a reading from one of my favorite Easter’s books – "The Little Rabbit" pic.twitter.com/2DsU6uRvdM— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) April 12, 2020
She stated: "I deeply regret this cancellation, but we need to make difficult decisions in the short-term to ensure a healthy country for the long-term."
Melania appeals to the public
Back in April, Trump also added her voice to other public figures who appealed to the public to follow good practices that would curb the spread of the coronavirus.
As the weekend approaches I ask that everyone take social distancing & wearing a mask/face covering seriously. #COVID19 is a virus that can spread to anyone - we can stop this together.— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) April 3, 2020
In a tweet, the First Lady urged people to listen to their health officials, practice social distancing, and wear face masks. She reminded them that anyone is at risk of getting the virus.
Wishing another first lady well
The first lady also offered well wishes to world leaders and their wives who contracted the virus. For instance, she sent out her best to Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, wife of Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
Sophie has since recovered from COVID-19. The US president and his wife reportedly tested negative for the coronavirus. We hope, like the entire nation, they continue to stay safe.
