Melania Trump focused on her work, highlighting her leading position in the "Be Best" campaign aimed against opioid abuse, cyberbullying, and other challenges faced by American children.

Melania Trump also thanked health care staffers for fighting the COVID-19 virus and urged US residents to "use caution and common sense to protect the vulnerable as millions of vaccines are now being delivered."
