First Lady Melania Trump just fired back at her online haters after she was accused of not taking the coronavirus seriously for showing off the work that is being done on the White House tennis pavilion.
Daily Mail reported that Melania responded Saturday morning after she was blasted for sharing the photos two days before.
“I encourage everyone who chooses to be negative & question my work at the @WhiteHouse to take time and contribute something good & productive in their own communities. #BeBest,” Melania tweeted today.

Objective reporting for the educated American.
Melania had shared the photos of the tennis pavilion progress on Thursday, writing, “I am excited to share the progress of the Tennis Pavillion at @WhiteHouse. Thank you to the talented team for their hard work and dedication.”
Liberals accused Melania of not caring about the coronavirus outbreak, which has already caused at least 17 deaths in the United States and is continuing to spread.
“29 people were killed by a tornado in Tennessee, the world is shuddering as a pandemic expands and what is a tennis pavilion?” actress Mia Farrow tweeted.
Other Twitter users posted photos of actress Kirsten Dunst from the movie Marie Antoinette along with phrases like “let them eat cake.”

“This is the most extraordinary thing to tweet in the midst of an epidemic. You really are amazingly out of touch with real live people,” another Twitter user wrote.
Melania has described the tennis pavilion, which is being built on the South Lawn, as her “legacy piece.”
“I am pleased to announce the ground breaking of a new tennis pavilion on the White House grounds. This structure will be a testament to American craftsmanship and skill,” she tweeted back in October when she announced the start of the project.
On Friday, Melania traveled to the Department of Justice to speak at the National Opioid Summit. Fighting the drug epidemic that is plaguing our country is one of the three pillars of her signature Be Best campaign, along with well-being and online safety.
The coronavirus is continuing to wreak havoc on the world, with 102,000 being infected around the world and 3,480 people dying from it. President Donald Trump went to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Friday to get an update on the disease, and it remains to be seen if he will be able to contain it.
