First lady Melania Trump is telling Americans that the coronavirus crisis will not last forever.
She appeared in a public service announcement to encourage Americans to stay safe and continue to connect with their friends and family as best as they can. Trump opened the PSA with a reminder that this will pass.
“This is not how we will live forever,” She said, adding, “Our children will return to schools, people will return to work, we will gather at the places of worship, concerts, and sporting events again.”

Trump proceeded to reiterate to Americans that they should stay safe and connected through safer technologies after she recently tweeted how they can do so.
“Consider taking advantage of time working from home to connect with your loved ones via email or FaceTime, spend time [with] family, or work on your well-being by reading a book or spending time on a hobby,” she tweeted.
