Americans’ "kindness and courage" during the COVID-19 pandemic have been inspiring to President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, the couple said Thursday in their annual Christmas message.
"Through this great challenge, we have been inspired by the kindness and courage of citizens across this country," Melania Trump said in a prerecorded message posted on her Twitter feed Thursday.
"Teachers have worked extraordinarily hard to keep our children learning. Students have delivered groceries to elderly neighbors. Communities have found new ways to stay connected to one another."
President Trump called the COVID-19 vaccines a "Christmas miracle," per the Washington Examiner. He thanked the scientists, researchers, and manufacturers who produced a safe and effective vaccine in less than a year.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, granted emergency use authorizations by the Food and Drug Administration, have combined to account for more than 1 million healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities being vaccinated.
The Trumps are spending Christmas at Mar-a-Lago, where they plan to move after the president leaves office Jan. 20.
