BERWYN, Pa. – Melania Trump spoke Thursday in the Philadelphia suburbs — stepping into the spotlight just days before the election.

It was first speech since the Republican National Convention in July.

Her speech comes after Donald Trump told ABC recently that Melania Trump would make “two or three speeches” before Election Day.

“She’s amazing when she speaks. She’s amazing. And it’s not what she does,” Trump said then, adding that “I think it’s going to be big speeches, important speeches.”

The Philadelphia suburbs are a crucial region — with both campaigns heavily courting middle-class women who live there. Ivanka Trump rolled out her father’s child care proposal there, as well.
