• Melania Trump celebrates International Women's Day by remembering the brave women who took bold actions
  • Twitter users questioned the former first lady about her contributions in helping other women
  • Many netizens praised Trump for standing tall despite the criticisms thrown at her

Melania Trump remembered the brave women she encountered in her life on International Women's Day.

The former first lady took to Twitter to celebrate with the rest of the women worldwide on International Women's Day. Trump shared the video she posted last year for the same occasion and acknowledged the "brave" women she met before.

"Today & every day women are taking bold & courageous actions to ensure the next generation of women have the tools they need to succeed," Trump wrote. "On this #InternationalWomensDay, I think of the brave women I met each year at the #IWOC awards & their moving stories of overcoming adversity."

Trump's post received mixed responses from her followers. Some questioned her contribution when she was the FLOTUS while others seemingly mocked her over the report that she had been spending her time visiting the spa at Mar-a-Lago — something the former first lady already denied.

"And please tell us what YOU have ever done to help other women. We will wait," one commented.

"Melania where do you find the time to tweet between all your spa treatments, redecorating, and shopping?" another wrote.

Meanwhile, many also supported Trump amid the bashing from her critics. Several said they already missed the ex-FLOTUS, and many also thanked her and sent their love to her in the comments section.

"And you, Lady, that you stand tall and strong in face of a the deluge of 'gossip', betrayal/s, slanders and libels. You are to be admired and the time will come that it will be so," one wrote.

"Thank you FLOTUS! Have a blessed day! We in the Czech Republic love you and support you and your amazing family! God bless you," a different user stated.

"You represent all women on #InternationalWomensDay I was proud to have you represent American values as #FirstLady Thank you #MelaniaTrump for being the best," another added.

In related news, just recently, a Missouri pastor called Trump a "trophy wife" and encouraged women to strive to look like her and lose weight. Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark of First General Baptist Church in Malden, Missouri said it is very important for men to have an attractive wife by their side.

Twitter slammed Clark for his sermon that put too much importance on women's appearance. Many also didn't like it because he seemed to blame women when their husbands or partners cheat on them due to their appearance. Meanwhile, several disagreed with Clark simply because for them, Trump is not a "trophy wife."
