After more than a year serving as FLOTUS, Melania Trump seems to be hitting her stride.
Mrs. Trump recently announced she will be making her first solo trip abroad.
Come October, the First Lady will have the presidential fleet busy heading to Africa.
She is planning her trip sometime in October.
As usual, the focus of her trip will be children.
In a prepared statement, the First Lady stated, “This will be my first time traveling to Africa and I am excited to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history.”
Social Media Backlash
When the trip was announced, liberals could not help themselves from spinning a yarn about her choice of destination.
The comments ranged from accusations of racism to reliving the alleged comments uttered by President Trump about some of these countries.
Coming in to Form
It is no secret Melania came into this role kicking and screaming.
Even though she had a career as a supermodel, she has always been rather private about her personal life.
Being Donald Trump’s wife, that is no easy chore.
Since she did not crave the headlines as one previous First Lady had done, she had been accused of not fulfilling her role as the First Lady by liberals.
That could not be further from the truth, though.
Melania has been very active since Trump took office, she has just chosen to stay behind the scenes and do things quietly.
Over the last couple of months, though, her office has been keeping the press much more informed.
Since that has happened, the media has seemed to back off her quite a bit.
However, they still continue to find hidden meanings in just about everything she does or says as a way to drive a wedge between FLOTUS and POTUS.
