Melania Trump attended her husband’s address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, looking flawless in a black sequined suit by designer Michael Kors. However, it’s what she did just hours earlier that now has everyone talking.
Unbeknownst to most, Melania spent the day of the president’s speech touring the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. On Wednesday, she posted a photo from her visit to her official Twitter account, which she captioned, “Thank you for welcoming me @ChildrensHealth. My prayers and thoughts are with all of the children and families. #GROWUPSTRONGER.”

According to Western Journalism, while visiting the Children’s National Medical Center, the First Lady toured the Bunny Mellon Healing Garden, which is named for horticulturist, Rachel “Bunny” Lambert Mellon, and is dedicated to America’s first ladies.
“I am a passionate believer in integrating and interpreting nature’s elements into our daily lives to create a warm, nurturing and positive environment,” Melania said in a statement. “I believe that these same natural benefits can be instrumental to enhancing the health and well-being of all children. It is important to me that children can recognize, identify and express their feelings in order to promote their mental wellness and healing process.”
Melania’s trip to the Children’s National Medical Center demonstrates the stark contrast she will be to her predecessor. It appears that Melania plans to make children a central focus of her work as First Lady, though in a supportive and nurturing way. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, set about micromanaging every bite of food American school children put in their mouths with her failed Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. It certainly is refreshing to have a First Lady who acts properly after eight long years of embarrassment on a global scale.
