First Lady Melania Trump has now officially signed off from her first official foreign trip, before returning back to Air Force One-in-hand with the President.
Melania giving a speech is not a common thing to see, which is why everyone was stunned when the first lady got up to address the US military personnel at a naval base in Italy, this Saturday afternoon, before heading back to Washington with President Trump.
Melania, who left the military base stunned with her speech, was once again largely noticeable in a black custom-made Dolce & Gabbana dress, with button embellishments. In her speech, the first lady noted how she will never forget the children and women she met during her 9-day overseas trip to Europe and the Middle East.
“It has been a great trip and many strides have been made,” Melania said, adding that
“My husband worked very hard on behalf of our country and I’m very proud of him.”
She also made it clear how the trip was incredible for her as a first lady as well and from what she said, we could see that it was a great experience for her as well.
Melania also added how she was both honored and blessed to have been granted an audience with Pope Francis, and she also shared stories of her time spent with sick children in several hospitals.
She also recalled meeting a boy at Vatican’s children’s hospital in Rome back on Wednesday
‘Just hours after leaving, a young boy I spent time with found out he had received a new heart donor. Receiving that news is a moment I will never forget and I wish him a speedy recovery,’ she stated.
Most importantly, Melania, took a moment to thank the service members for sacrificing on behalf of the U.S.
‘I also want to take a moment to thank you all for the sacrifices you make on behalf of our country,’ said Melania, adding,‘To the families who endure time apart or constant time apart, your sacrifices do not go unnoticed.’
