White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday likened First Lady Melania Trump to former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

Navarro made the remarks while speaking to MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell about a possible vaccine for COVID-19. His comments came prior to the second night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, when Melania Trump is scheduled to speak.

"You know, tonight, maybe [I will] touch a little bit on what's going to happen," Navarro said. "I think it might be useful. I think Melania Trump will be introducing the new Rose Garden."

"You know, I find her to be the Jackie Kennedy of her time," he continued, "the beauty, the elegance, the soft-spokenness. I think she'll deliver a powerful message to the American people."
