MELANIA TRUMP: Good evening. It seems like just yesterday that we were at our first convention, where my husband accepted the Republican nomination and then became our 45th president of the United States. Yet the energy and enthusiasm for who should lead this nation-- it is real today as it was four years ago.

I know I speak for my husband and entire family when I say we have not forgotten the incredible people who were willing to take a chance on the businessmen who had never worked in politics. We know it was you who elected him to be commander in chief. And we know it is you who will carry us through again.

We were humbled by the incredible support then. And we are still grateful today. I want to acknowledge the fact that, since March, our lives have changed drastically. The invisible enemy COVID-19 swept across our beautiful country and impacted all of us.

My deepest sympathy goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one. And my prayers are with those who are ill or suffering.
