First Lady Attacked For Reciting 'The Lord's Prayer' At President's Rally

The first lady also pledged to remain true to herself and be truthful to her supporters, "no matter what the opposition is saying about [her]", a riposte to various critiques of her that have appeared in the media.

First Lady Melania Trump kicked off her husband President Donald Trump's rally in Florida by reciting a prayer, the media reported.

It's not the first time that Melania has worn red in Florida. As Donald Trump was nearing his inauguration, a number of designers came forward to say they would refuse the opportunity to dress the former model.

At the Saturday Trump rally, Melania, who is from Slovenia, said that as First Lady, "I will act in the best interests of all of you".

"I'm committed to creating and supporting initiatives dear to my heart, which will have an impact on women and children all around the world", she said to a cheering crowd in Melbourne, Fla.

U.S. court rejects bid to reinstate Trump travel ban
Appeals courts are generally leery of upending the status quo, which in this case is the lower court's suspension of the ban. The president says national security is at risk as a result.

But the rally itself came under fire from Trump's critics.

Shortly after the awkward moment ended, Melania talked about her husband's plans and how he will offer Americans a new life perspective.

Melania, who lives in NY away from her husband as their son Barron finishes out the school year, has been by the president's side for many events throughout his first month in Washington.

Preceding her husband on the dais at a rally in the city of Melbourne, the First Lady started her remarks with the words "let us pray", before beginning her recitation of the well-known Christian prayer.
