Thur, Oct. 19, 2017: Trump, First Lady attend gala benefiting UN refugee agency

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania are attending a gala at the Embassy of Kuwait benefiting the U.N. refugee agency.

Melania Trump is being honored by the Kuwait-American Foundation at a dinner benefiting the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

President Trump has taken a hard line on refugees, trying to temporarily halt their entry into the United States and recently setting the lowest cap on refugees in modern history.

The first lady’s office says she is being honored “for her dedication to causes affecting women and children in the US and abroad.”

It says she “considers this as an opportunity to continue to shine a light on the fact that it is often children who bear the harshest burdens of cruelty and injustice.”
