First Lady Melania Trump had the opportunity of a lifetime on Friday to embark on a private tour of the Great Wall of China. When she reached the top of the historic landmark, Malenia turned to a reporter from CNN who had accompanied her on the trek. The first lady proceeded to drop a ten-word truth bomb on the liberal “journalist,” and now, Americans patriots from sea to shining sea are cheering.
On Thursday evening, President Donald Trump announced via Twitter that he would be departing China in order to head to Vietnam for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Da Nang on Friday. First Lady Melania Trump accompanied her husband thus far on his twelve-day journey throughout Asia, meeting with Japanese First Lady Akie Abe and Kim Jung-sook, the First Lady of South Korea. However, she and her husband will travel separately for the remainder of the overseas trip.
President Trump said that Melania would be “staying behind” in China “to see the zoo” and tour The Great Wall while he traveled to Vietnam. Then, Melania’s schedule has her flying to Alaska to greet U.S. troops there.

On Friday, Melania Trump toured The Great Wall, granting CNN a rare interview once she reached the top. Kate Bennet, who was given the immense honor or interviewing Melania, surely never expected the first lady to speak so glowingly of her position, completely showing up her predecessor Michelle Obama.
Asked how she felt about the job one year in, Melania said it was her “honor to be a first lady of the United States.”
No visit to China would be complete without seeing the Great Wall, which is exactly how first lady Melania Trump wrapped her first-ever trip to Asia. Stopping before she went to the top, Trump spoke exclusively with CNN about her six-day tour of the region, specifically how she felt seeing her first lady counterparts in Japan, South Korea and China.

“We had a great time, it was nice to see them again,” said Melania of Akie Abe, Madam Kim Jung-sook, and Madam Peng Liyuan of China. “They were in the United States before and we have a great relationship with all three of them,” she added.
Asked if she discussed her platform with her fellow first ladies, Melania said that it was one of the topics they shared. “We did, we did. We did exchange what they’re working on and what I will work on and what my passion is,” she said.
Then, Melania commented on her feelings upon reaching the one-year mark since her husband was elected President of the United States. At that point, she dropped a truth bomb of epic proportions on the liberal CNN reporter, saying that it is her “honor” to serve as FLOTUS.
First lady Melania Trump looked as chic as ever Friday as she toured China’s famed Great Wall at Mutianyu, two hours north of Beijing city center.
She rode a cable car to a watchtower, signed a guestbook and strolled along a stretch of the wall for about half an hour with a small group of aides and security officers, according to the Associated Press.

“Well, it’s my honor to be a first lady of the United States, and it was a very busy year,” said a smiling Melania. “We love to live in Washington, we have a very busy life. It’s exciting, as well. It’s a lot of things that we need to take care of, and a lot of responsibilities,” she continued, “and it’s all part of being the first lady.”
This could not be a more distinct departure from her predecessor Michelle Obama, who infamously said that she was never even proud to be an American until her husband was named the Democratic nominee for president in 2008.
Indeed, what a difference a year makes! Share this report if you could not be more proud to call Melania Trump your first lady!
