It also has been three years since Melania Trump assumed the role of being the First Lady of the United States. When it comes to fashion, Melania has inspired us with her looks and style, making her the most stylish First Lady since Jackie Kennedy. Despite fashion magazine refusing to cover Melania as the First Lady in fashion and her role, only to ridicule her in both aspects, America is lucky to have her and her husband in the White House.

On Monday, Melania celebrated her third year as FLOTUS by sharing a photo of her during the 58th presidential inauguration on social media. “It is a great honor to serve the people of this incredible country. #InaugurationDay2017,” the FLOTUS wrote on Twitter.

Let’s take a look back to three years ago of What Melania Wore for the presidential inauguration and inaugural ball.

Later at night for the presidential ball, Melania wore a custom couture gown designed by her stylist Hervé Pierre. The gown was an off-white off-the-shoulder that featured a slit skirt, a ruffled accent from neckline to hem and a claret ribbon around the waist. In October 2017, the inaugural gown was donated to the Smithsonian’s First Ladies Collection exhibition at the National Museum of American History. 

President Trump took time on Monday to honor both the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his own inauguration three years ago by touting that the unemployment rate for African-Americans is the lowest in history.

“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office,” Trump tweeted. “So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY.

The tweet continued: “African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”

Later in the day, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made a short visit to the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial in Washington, D.C., to pay their respects.

In the past three years, the amazing progress Americans have made under President Trump’s innovative and tireless leadership that has produced: 

  • The economy added 6.7 million jobs, and unemployment fell to the lowest rate in half a century.

  • Stock prices hit record levels, continuing their decade-long rise with Trump in office, setting new records last year and then again in the new year.
  • Household income grew; poverty decreased, and paychecks grew 2.5% after inflation remained in check.

  • Home prices reached record levels; homeownership increased.
  • The poverty rate has now declined. The percentage of Americans living with income below the official poverty line went down to 11.8% of the population in 2018, the lowest level since 2001.
  • The number of food stamp recipients dropped to the lowest levels in a decade. The number of food stamp recipients has gone down 6.3 million, or 14.8%, since January 2017, when Trump took office.

He also won confirmation of 50 U.S. Court of Appeals judges (30 during his first two years and another 20 in 2019). Trump has now installed nearly 28% of all the 179 appellate court judges authorized by federal law. Trump also outpaced Obama on filling lower courts. Trump has won confirmation for 133 of his nominees to be federal District Court judges as of the end of 2019. That’s nearly 20% of the 677 authorized district judges.
  • U.S. crude oil production resumed its upward trend under Trump, hitting record levels. Production topped 4 billion barrels in 2018 for the first time on record.

To vote for anyone BUT Trump wouldn’t make any sense. A person would have to really hate America, and be very stupid, to vote for a Dumbocrap. After all the good things he’s accomplished in a far less time period than Obama could have DREAMED to do, they still hate him. How anti-American can you get?! Vote for TRUMP!

BTW… a quick quote: Why doesn’t Trump need glasses? Because he’s already got 2020!
