CAMPAIGN TRAIL

The incident happened on Woodlawn Avenue near South Tryon Street at 3:25 p.m.

During a speech in Huntersville, Melania looked to paint a glowing review of her husband’s accomplishments.

The First Lady said: “We had three and a half years of winning, let’s have another four.”

“We have a chance to vote for a leader who sees our future as bright, or someone who only sees a dark winter,” she added, referring to Trump’s left-wing rival, Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

North Carolina is a key battleground state for Biden and Trump, who last week sent his daughter, Ivanka, to give a speech Charlotte, which focused on her dad’s approach to foreign policy.

Melania was keen to draw on this record overseas, too, mentioning how her husband had overseen the killings of numerous terrorists.

The comment drew wild applause from the crowd, which consisted mainly of middle-aged women, according to reports.
