First lady Melania Trump is defending her work on the new White House tennis pavilion after a tweet she posted was roundly criticized as tone deaf amid the coronavirus outbreak.

“I encourage everyone who chooses to be negative (and) question my work at the ⁦‪@WhiteHouse⁩ to take time and contribute something good (and) productive in their own communities,” Trump tweeted Saturday.

Melania Trump has been silent on coronavirus, which has spread to 28 states, though one of the three pillars of her “Be Best” initiative is “health and well-being of children.”

On Thursday, Melania Trump posted about the construction status on the tennis pavilion, with pictures of her wearing a hard hat and looking over what appear to be architectural plans.

The private pavilion will be located on the South Lawn of the White House and serve as a “place to gather and spend leisure time for First Families.”

Oh yeah, that’s important. 

How insensitive do you have to be to have a taxpayer-funded vanity project like this started while people are literally dying all over the country due to your husband’s incompetence? 

I understand that this court is not scheduled to be finished until sometime in October, so how many sets does Melania think she will get in before her husband is voted out of office?

By the way if this project is just her way of dealing with her anxieties I believe Bill Clinton has some advice for her.
