- Melania Trump is accompanying her husband on his first foreign trip
- “I am very excited for the upcoming trip,” she said in a statement
“I am very excited for the upcoming trip,” said the first lady in a prepared statement one day before her departure.
“This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and foreign relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives,” she added.
The trip, which includes stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel, Rome, Brussels and Sicily, will likely shine the biggest spotlight on Melania Trump to date. As a first lady who hasn’t yet moved into the White House, nor staffed an office, outlined a succinct platform or had a robust schedule of events, the curiosity factor surrounding her as she leaves American soil is at an all-time high.
