A resplendent Melania Trump joins her husband at the White House in her first official appearance since the President was sworn in.
First Lady Melania Trump headed down to the nation’s capital on Wednesday, where she joined her husband in welcoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara to the White House.
The Daily Mail reports,
It marked the first official appearance Melania has made since her husband was sworn into office almost one month ago on January 20, with the 46-year-old mother choosing to stay in New York City with her son Barron rather than join President Trump in the White House.
The First Lady stood alongside her husband outside the South Portico of the White House to welcome the Netanyahus at noon.
Melania greeted her guests with a kiss and the group exchanged pleasantries while posing for some photos before going inside for the President and Prime Minister’s news conference.
Once inside, Melania sat next to her stepdaughter Ivanka, who attended the early afternoon event with her husband, Jared Kushner.
Melania looked picture perfect, wearing an impeccably tailored white skirt suit and pair of nude heels for the occasion, while showing off her recently-lightened hair.
And she wore no jewelry other than the 25-carat diamond ring her husband gave her on their 10th wedding anniversary.
Melania’s appearance on Wednesday came the day after she announced that White House tours would resume next month.
Tours are typically suspended for a few weeks when a new administration takes office.
The First Lady announced the news in a statement that read: ‘I am excited to reopen the White House to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year.
‘The White House is a remarkable and historic site and we are excited to share its beauty and history. I am committed to the restoration and preservation of our nation’s most recognizable landmark.’
And in what may be the only move this administration has made that would excite the Obamas, Melania also revealed on Tuesday her plans to keep the garden Michelle planted in 2009 on the South Lawn of the White House.
