Ms Trump shared her final video address as First Lady on social media ahead of President Donald Trump’s last day in office on Wednesday. In a six-minute video, Ms Trump seemed to condemn the Capitol Hill riots as she stressed “violence is never the answer and will never be justified”.
She added: “In all circumstances, I ask every American to be an ambassador of be best, to focus on what unites us, to rise above what divides us, to always choose love over hatred, peace over violence, and others before yourself.
“Together, as one national family, we can continue to be the light of hope for future generations and carry on America’s legacy of rising our nation to greater heights through our spirit of courage, goodness, and grace.”
But Ms Trump faced vicious criticism from Twitter users who claimed Ms Trump would “not be missed”.
Referencing Ms Trump’s Be Best initiative and attaching a photograph of Barack and Michelle Obama greeting the Trumps, one person wrote: “You spout ‘Be Best’, then behave as rudely as possible, ignoring all traditions & norms.
“Get out of here. These people symbolise the Be Best spirit when you were moving in.”
Another Twitter user added: “I’m so beyond thrilled your reign as first lady is toast.
“Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
A third user said: “Farewell and good riddance to Melania Trump, who has been the most useless First Lady in American history.
