Melania Trump makes heartwarming tribute to mark 76 years since D-Day

Mrs Trump visited France with her husband a year ago. On Saturday she retweeted a video of the commemorations which saw her with Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron. Melania wrote: “Today, on the 76th Anniversary of #DDay, we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice & we honor those who courageously served.

“I cherish my memories from last year’s visit to Omaha Beach & the Normandy American Cemetery with POTUS, Emmanuel Macron & Brigitte Macron.”

The tweet from last year said: “We must never forget the lives lost and heroic actions made by so many on D-Day in Normandy, France.”

The operation began the liberation of France from German occupation.

It was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

“Well Done.”

A White House Official has told CNN that Mrs Trump’s social media posts on the unrest in America following the killing of George Floyd has frustrated the West Wing.

This has caused frustration as the message is out of sync.

The official said it "doesn't help, it frustrates the West Wing”.

Another source said: "There's a feeling of deliberateness to her timing that makes it seem even more disjointed.”

This frustration has led to Mrs Trump’s name being kept out of discussions between Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Hope Hicks for Trump to visit St. John’s Church and hold up a bible for a picture.

An official said: "To be honest, I don't think it was even part of the discussion.”
