It Was Good to See the First Lady With President Trump Greeting Benjamin Netanyahu and His Wife at the White House
Fulfilling her First Lady duties. Melania Trump made her first official White House appearance since her husband Donald Trump’s inauguration during a meeting with the Israeli prime minister and his wife on Wednesday, February 15. Watch her greet them in the video above!
Melania, 46, stunned in a white cashmere Karl Lagerfeld pencil skirt and matching jacket for the diplomatic meeting, during which she and the president, 70, welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, to the White House.
The foursome posed for photos outside the White House before retiring inside, where Melania sat stiffly next to her step-daughter Ivanka and Ivanka’s husband and Trump senior advisor, Jared Kushner, for a news conference. Afterward, Melania and Sara departed for a visit to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture while their husbands conducted private meetings.
“As we tour this awe-inspiring museum — one cannot help but be overcome by the history of African Americans,” Melania said in a statement to CNN of her visit to the museum. “Theirs is a story of the triumph of the human spirit over unthinkable inhumanity. Both the United States and Israel are dedicated to democracy, celebrating diversity, and working towards peace between neighbors.”
Afterward, CNN reports the First Lady said, “As we remember, with deep humility and reverence, the historic plight of slavery which the Jewish and African American people have known all too well, we rededicate ourselves to those powerful words that both our nations hold dear: ‘NEVER AGAIN!’”
According to a pool report, Melania told the prime minister’s wife, “Nice to see you. Thank you for coming to D.C.,” after their afternoon together. The two couples will reconvene Wednesday evening for a private dinner hosted by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and his wife, Jeanette.
