The first lady may have found her White House calling.
Late last month she returned to the border to speak with officials at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Tucson, Ariz., where she held a roundtable discussion with those on the front lines of the immigration crisis.
Im here to support you and give my help, whatever I can, said Mrs. Trump.
Its her second trip to the border, and she seems laser-focused on the issues there affecting children. She cares about children deeply and when the news started to hit I think she was very concerned and wanted to make sure the kids are being well taken care of, said her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham. She doesnt like to see parents and kids separated, she told The Associated Press.
Melania Trump has not had an easy go of it since becoming first lady. She and other family members have been the target of late-night talk shows, and social media has been cruel to Melania. Being married to the president of the United States can be daunting to anyone but it is fair to say that her husband has drawn more ire from all sides than most.
We applaud Melania Trump and her efforts to understand the situation on the border and use her position to improve it. She is a smart and accomplished woman and has the unique circumstance of being an immigrant herself.
She is becoming more high-profile in her current role and that can be a powerful thing as weve seen with some of her predecessors.
Border security is important but so is empathy, and this first lady is certainly exhibiting it.
In all due respect to the First Lady, I don’t see how that helps solve the problem. Please remember that Americans are raped, murdered, and harmed in any number of ways as a direct result of the illegal invasion.
It might take the edge off politically, but that’s about it.
She’s a jewel.
Melania Trump is a class act, a superb First Lady. President Trump is also a class act...in the parlor. In the P.C. and Political world, which he knows little about nor wants to, he carries over to those two entities a tough leadership for which we can be proud Americans.
There should have been a “honeymoon” with Congress the first few weeks and then giving him a chance for the good of the country. Carter and Obama were given that.
I can’t tell you how much I loathe the despicable American media and Dem-Socialists and protesters for what they did to the Trumps before they even had one day in DC.
When I’m dieting the posts start with “love” and end with grudges. I’ll feel better when I’ve eaten. Sorry.
No need to apologize, I totally agree!
She is everything a woman, wife, and mother should be.
