The First Lady will be visiting a local hospital in Boston on Wednesday this week to learn about the program where volunteers take part in cuddling babies that are going through drug withdrawal. Some newborn babies experience withdrawal symptoms when they are born because their parents used certain drugs during pregnancy.
Melania’s visit to the Boston Medical Centre is part of her BeBest initiative.
However, the FLOTUS has received backlash on Twitter for retweeting an article from WCVB-TV Boston about her upcoming visit.
One user said: “Careful... the babies might get Frost Bite!”
Another said: “The doctors and nurses at Boston Medical see this as a betrayal of our patients and our mission.”
First Lady Melania Trump’s relationship with Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen Pence, has been revealed as rocky, to say the least. In a new biography, ‘Free, Melania: The Unauthorised Biography’, CNN Correspondent Kate Bennett gives the first behind-the-scenes look at President Donald Trump’s wife. According to Ms Bennett, there is something “strange and telling” about the connection between the two most important women in America today.
The biographer points to a trip to Corpus Christi, Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, as a key example.
As she tells it, Ms Bennett remembers "watching someone who looked a lot like Karen Pence, moving from the section ahead of ours, typically where aide and advance teams sit, and head toward the back lavatory”.
The CNN journalist speculated that this perhaps meant that Mrs Pence's place among aides was because the First Lady had not invited her to the spacious private cabin at the front of the plane.
It could also be that Mrs Pence didn't accept an invitation.
First Lady Melania Trump made a stunning appearance at the Congressional Ball on Thursday, lighting up the White House Grand Foyer in a white floor-length dress as President Donald Trump avoided talk about his impeachment process moving ahead.
All eyes were on Melania who appeared in a $4,000 crystal-embellished cape-effect silk-crepe gown from Lebanese designer Reem Acra, which is recommended for a wedding ceremony or reception as it pools at the bottom and has a chiffon lining to ensure coverage.
But POTUS took the time to point out her flair for interior decoration rather than her fashion sense - which has seen her wearing the cape style and the Beirut-born designer before.
After thanking Karen and Mike Pence for attending, Donald Trump said: 'I want to congratulate Melania, she did such a beautiful job with the decorations.'
He'd began his speech by making the audience laugh after he brushed past impeachment talk and said it had been a 'very exciting month in Washington, DC'.
The First Lady was asked by a member of the press for her new year's resolution to which she responded by saying “peace on the world.” After the US President immediately corrected his wife and explained to her that new year's resolutions are not to be said aloud while also praising his own resolution. He said: “But I can tell you, we really have a good resolution and it’s a resolution for our country.”
Mr Trump explained to his wife, “I’m not sure you're supposed to say a resolution out loud.
“I don’t want to say what my resolution is because I think we jinx it.”
This news comes after the First Lady was humiliated on social media after citizens accused her of plagiarising Christmas.
The First Lady revealed her Christmas decorations for the first time earlier this month in a video on her official Twitter account.
On the same day President Donald Trump repeated a favorite slur to mock political rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren over a past controversy, First Lady Melania Trump championed the role women play in American society during a speech at the International Women of Courage Awards.
It was only the latest example of the so-called split screen of the Trump administration, in which one moment has to compete with the contradictions of another.
“I’m proud of what this country continues to do for women,” Mrs. Trump, 49, said at the Wednesday awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. She added moments later that “in the United States, women are playing vital roles in society. They are mothers, wives, doctors, CEOs and elected officials, to name just a few.”
But at nearly the same time on Wednesday morning, President Trump continued to slam Warren, one of the remaining Democratic presidential candidates looking to face him in the 2020 general election, as “Pocahontas” in reference to past controversy over her claiming Native American ancestry.
“Wow! If Elizabeth Warren wasn’t in the race, Bernie Sanders would have EASILY won Massachusetts, Minnesota and Texas, not to mention various other states,” Trump, 73, tweeted. “Our modern day Pocahontas won’t go down in history as a winner, but she may very well go down as the all time great SPOILER!”
