With 5 Days to Go Until Election Day, Melania Trump Campaigns Solo for First Time
Melania Trump will speak on her husband’s behalf Thursday, hitting the campaign trail solo for the first time since her disastrous RNC speech where she lifted words directly from Michelle Obama.
Melania, who has been married to Donald Trump since 2005, will address a campaign event in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, at 2 p.m., where she is slated to speak for about 20 minutes on her husband's policies for families, women and children, CBS News reported.
Her husband, meanwhile, is scheduled to attend campaign events in North Carolina, embracing recent polls that show the race between him and Hillary Clinton tightening.
“Stay on point, Donald,” he repeated at a campaign rally in Florida Wednesday, apparently giving himself advice in front of his audience.
At another Florida rally, he returned to a favorite practice of rallying against the media, when he suddenly singled out NBC News reporter Katy Tur in a bizarre tirade.
"There’s something happening. They're not reporting it. Katy — you're not reporting it, Katy. But there's something happening, Katy. There's something happening, Katy,” he said.
It's not the first time Trump has knocked Tur in public before. In December, he called her a “third-rate journalist” and in July told her to “be quiet” during a press conference.
Several journalists and supporters of Tur rallied around the journalist and started the trending topic #ImWithTur on social media.
Tur spoke about the incident to Brian Williams on MSNBC Wednesday night.
“It is a unique experience to have an entire crowd of people... booing you. And it’s especially unique when they’re actually saying your name and looking directly at you,” Tur said. “And that’s what happened today.”
She added: "Often times when he’s playing to the camera and saying we don’t move our cameras to show these crowds, the cameras are all looking in opposite directions showing the crowds,” she explained.
On Thursday, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said the Republican candidate didn't mean any harm in his rant against Tur, telling a Morning Joe panel, “he obviously didn't mean it in any malicious way."
