First Lady Melania Trump took time out of her busy schedule to visit some very special patriots this holiday season. Placing politics to the side, Mrs. Trump dazzled in snazzy ensemble by Max Mara and Hervé Pierre as she posed for photographers and visited with her new friends.
In an pre-Christmas visit to Children’s National Hospital, the First Lady spent time with the young patients and their families. Mrs. Trump read books with the children, played games, and sang Christmas songs.
Check it out, per the White House Office of the Press Secretary:
First Lady Melania Trump visited Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., today to visit with patients, families and staff members. The tradition of First Lady visits to Children’s National dates back more than 60 years to First Lady Bess Truman.
Mrs. Trump began her visit by touring the neuroscience center, where she spent time with patients and their families, as well as doctors, nurses, and other staff. After the visit, Mrs. Trump, escorted by two patients, arrived in the hospital’s main atrium where she read one of her favorite holiday books, “The Polar Express” and answered questions from some of the patients about the holidays and what they mean to her.
Here’s what the First Lady had to say, per Daily Caller:
“I was so grateful at the opportunity to spend time with the children and their families today and want to thank the medical staff at Children’s National for their lifesaving work,” the First Lady stated
“The holidays are a time for hope, love, traditions and family, and it is my wish for everyone to be able to celebrate them in good health with their loved ones. Many of the patients and families I visited with today cannot spend the holidays at home this year, so I ask everyone to keep them in their thoughts and prayers as we hope for a speedy recovery and joyous New Year.”
For all the commotion and holiday cheer, the press in attendance really seemed to focus on the gorgeous First Lady’s fashion choices. Melania wore a cozy, white wool Max Mara coat over her shoulders for the visit and it looked stunning! She chose to pair it with a ribbed, creme-colored Max Mara sweater.
The high-waisted Hervé Pierre skirt she wore sold out within hours of the photos appearing in the press.
