Melania Trump sparks reactions over 'National Read a Book Day' tweet
September 6 is National Read a Book Day, and first lady Melania Trump marked the occasion with a tweet.
“On National #ReadABookDay I encourage everyone to read a book," she wrote. "Let every page educate you & take you on an exciting journey!”
Responses were mixed, ranging from gratitude for the mention to some rather scathing indictments of both her and her husband’s literacy levels.
Many Twitter users used the platform to offer some reading suggestions.
One person recommended, “Like a science book or some climate change facts?” while another wrote, “George Orwells 1984 may be appropriate…”
Some were also curious about what the Trumps have been reading.
