Melania Trump Welcomes Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu in Her First Official White House Appearance
First Lady Melania Trump was by President Trump‘s side on Wednesday as they welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, to the White House.
The moment marked Mrs. Trump’s first official appearance at the White House since her husband was sworn in as president nearly a month ago on Jan. 20. Mrs. Trump, 46, has decided to continue living in New York City with her 10-year-old son, Barron, while he finishes the school year.
Mrs. Trump greeted the Netanyahus with kisses when she and her husband met their guests outside the South Portico of the White House at noon. The two couples chatted and posed for photos before heading inside for the president and prime minister’s news conference.
After leading Mrs. Netanyahu to her seat in the Oval Office, Mrs. Trump sat down next to daughter-in-law Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.
Following the press conference, the Trumps and Netanyahus spent some time together in the Oval Office, where they posed for more photos.
The first lady then escorted Mrs. Netanyahu around the White House while their husbands had private meetings. Later, the two women visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where they were given a tour.
After the museum visit, the two women said their goodbyes, holding each other’s hands as they spoke, according to a pool report.
“Nice to see you. Thank you for coming to D.C.,” Mrs. Trump told Mrs. Netanyahu before they left in separate cars.
The two women will be reunited later Wednesday night, when the Trumps will throw a private dinner for the Netanyahus. Florida Senator Marco Rubio and his wife, Jeanette, will co-host.
