During a campaign speech on Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump came out in full support of her husband...
By launching a blistering attack against Democratic candidate, Joe Biden.
via: GettyIn an onslaught none of us were expecting, Melania quite literally unleashed hell upon her husband's opponent.
It was the First Lady's first solo campaign stop of the year...
via: GettyAnd she didn't hold back with making an impact.
Now, we are mere days away from the highly anticipated presidential election...
via: GettyAnd it's been an explosive journey coming up to it, to say the least.
Donald Trump is hoping to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...
via: GettyBut it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...
via: GettyBut it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.
The first presidential debate was held on September 29th at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus in Cleveland.
via: GettyEntering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls. Biden's lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump's campaign, with Biden's campaign donations improving significantly.
President Trump was obviously aware of this...
via: GettyAnd in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden's abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate!
But overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.
via: GettyBoth Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another, calling each other out, and constantly interrupting each other.
The whole debate was certainly made personal...And it didn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
It all felt very disorganized...
This debate is unfortunately between a steamroller with no operator & a Roomba that got stuck in a corner— Aparna Nancherla (@Aparna Nancherla)1601428943.0
But Trump's presidential campaign seems to be hitting rocks...And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...
via: GettyHe was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning to hear.
Well, the first and only vice presidential debate of 2020 went ahead on October 7th between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.
via: GettyWashington Bureau Chief for USA Today, Ellen Page, moderated the heated debate in Utah and in similarity to the first Presidential Debate, sparks flew for miles.
In the days following the diagnosis', Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."
via: GettyBut what about Melania?
Since her diagnosis, Melania has remained relatively under the radar...
via: GettyAnd has given virtually no updates with regards to her health.
But last week, she finally emerged from the White House.
Hey @MELANIATRUMP made it to the debate, guess she’s feeling better— C Clayton (@C Clayton)1603420716.0
Wearing a mask, Melania was seated on the front row as the debate unfolded...
via: GettyWhich many took as a prominent sign of support for her husband's campaign.
But yesterday, she took her unwavering support to a whole new level.
via: GettyIn a solo campaign in Pennsylvania - a critical battleground state of Trump's - Melania uncharacteristically launched into a brutal attack against those who have criticized her husband, the media, and, of course, Joe Biden.
The First Lady began by describing her husband as a "fighter"...
via: GettyAnd even attempted to justify his incessant Tweeting as one of his strengths. "Donald is a fighter. He loves this country and he fights for you every single day. For the first time in history, the citizens of this country get to hear directly and instantly from their President every single day through social media," she said.
Of course, many found this quite bizarre...

But Melania's tone was quick to turn sour.
via: GettyShe firstly attacked the Democrats for impeaching her husband, echoing one of his campaign arguments with a claim they were impeaching President Trump while he battled the coronavirus.
She said this:
via: Getty"Let us also not forget what the democrats chose to focus on when COVID-19 first came into our country. While the President was taking decisive actions to keep the American people safe, the democrats were wasting American tax-payer dollars in a sham impeachment."
She then called out Joe Biden by name...
via: GettyAnd attacked his long record in public life. "Joe Biden attacked President Trump's decision to put the American people first and closing travel from China. He called it 'Xenophobic hysteria'. Now he suggests that he could have done a better job. Well, the American people can look at Joe Biden's thirty-six-years in congress and 8 years in the vice presidency and determine whether they think he'll finally be able to get something done for the American people."
Echoing her husband's past claims, she then slammed Biden as a "socialist"...
via: GettyAnd warned that he will "destroy America" if he wins the presidency.
