A surprising number of people feel sorry for First Lady Melania Trump. Conversely, many have said that she knew what she was getting into when she married Donald Trump. Certainly, she never appears truly happy — except when she was doing this.
Trump tweeted about his wife’s first trip, which was to Africa. In his tweet, POTUS referred to Mrs. Trump “holding a 6-month-old baby” in a Ghanan hospital. The president said:
‘Proud of our great First Lady – and she loves doing this!’
The commander-in-chief pointed to a tweet by talented White House photographer, Doug Mills. The photo showed Melania Trump smiling as she “handed out teddy bears” and blankets:
@FLOTUS holds a 6month old baby at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital in Accra, Ghana. The First Lady handed out teddy bears and Be Best-themed blankets donated by the White House to young children and their mothers.’
The blankets were imprinted with her “Be Best” theme “promoting health and education” in the lives of children both in the U.S. and abroad. After Ghana, Mrs. Trump will move on to Kenya, Malawi, and Egypt.
FLOTUS may be also trying to mend fences, after her husband referred to African countries as “sh*thole” nations. The administration said that her trip will help “heal some of the division,” according to BBC.
First Lady Of Ghana, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, accompanied Melania Trump to the hospital. They saw the hospital staff weighing babies, which was a program promoting children’s nutrition financed by the United States’ foreign aid organization, USAid.
