MELANIA Trump has said "violence is never the answer and will never be justified" in a farewell message.
The outgoing First Lady has posted a video clip on Twitter as Joe Biden prepares to take office following his presidential inauguration on Wednesday.
She added that it had been the "greatest honour of my life" to serve as First Lady, describing her four years serving alongside her husband Donald Trump as "unforgettable".
Melania said she had been "inspired" by millions of Americans across the country during her time at the White House and described service members as "heroes".
"As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories," she said.
"I see the faces of brave young soldiers who have told me with their pride in their eyes how much they love serving this country.
"To every service member, and to our incredible military families, you are heroes."
Melania, 50, also implored Americans to use "common sense" in the ongoing fight against coronavirus.
"As the world continues to confront the Covid-19 pandemic, I thank all of the nurses, doctors, healthcare professionals, manufacturing workers, truck drivers and so many others who are working to save lives," she said.
"We grieve for the families who have lost a loved one.
"Every life is precious, and I ask all Americans to use caution and common sense to protect the vulnerable as millions of vaccines are now being delivered."
