The president and first lady left on Wednesday for their second whirlwind overseas trip that started in Poland. The second stop was in Hamburg, Germany today where the annual G-20 summit meeting with other world leaders is being held along with an overwhelming riot that started at 8,000 angry people and is expected to swell to 100,000 violent activists protesting the summit that the Trumps and other world leaders are attending. During the intensity of the quick trip, Melania Trump managed to slip away for a moment for an unbelievable reason that left millions of Americans stunned.
The 24 hours that the Trumps were in Warsaw were different than the couple’s other international visits since Melania proved she’s a powerful first lady with an influential voice. She gave a speech to thousands of Polish people in attendance at the Uprising Monument on Thursday who were as moved by her messages as Americans who heard it back in the homeland. However, there was something privately she did while in Poland after slipping off on her own that speaks volumes beyond what she said in her speech today.
Before she gave her speech about everyone in the world, regardless of location, being able to live without fear, she replaced hate with love in something that’s become very familiar and unique to her, compared to all other first ladies. While Melania’s love of sick and afflicted children has been evident in her short time in the White House and on ever state trip she makes, this brief afternoon getaway before her speech was not at a children’s hospital.
Although Melania has an official platform as first lady, which is to combat the destructive epidemic of cyber bullying, just being her incredibly compassionate self is far more impressive than a specified focus she’s expected to have. Her actions are an example and influence not just in America, but around the world as we’ve seen on her recent international trips, including this one to Poland after what she did at Warsaw’s largest science centers.
The Daily Mail reports:
“Melania Trump delivered one of her most assured speeches to date on Thursday afternoon as she addressed a crowd in Warsaw after a day spent with her Polish counterpart visiting children at a local science center.”
“Melania said at one point in her speech that ‘people should be able to live their lives without fear’ while standing beside the landmark which serves as a reminder of Poland’s occupation by Nazi forces during World War II.”
“She also spoke about her ‘wonderful’ visit to Poland’s largest science centers, with the First Lady continuing her tradition of visiting with children on her trips with President Trump.”
“It was announced just before her remarks on Thursday that she would soon be heading back to the region as well, with Slovenian President Borut Pahor’s cabinet announcing that President Trump had agreed to travel to the country of his wife’s birth for a meeting.”
Melania was only in Poland for a few short hours after arriving the night before and had a big day of delivering an impressive speech, but that didn’t stop her from taking time for what’s most important to her. There was little to no coverage of this sudden hospital trip until now, hours after she arrived there.
Our gracious first lady has made children her number one priority in her role as well as special patients such as heroes being treated at Walter Reed for their serious injuries received while fighting for our country. She has visited a number of hospitals and spent genuine time with patients there, never in a hurry to get to other pressing matters within the presidency. She’s compassionate and caring to strangers with a real level of concern that hasn’t been seen in years.
“Melania was joined by Poland’s First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda for her visit to the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw earlier in the day, where the two women spent time speaking with local children and posing for photos,” according to Daily Mail.
She came bearing gifts for these special kids, as she always does, to show her thoughtfulness. Melania reportedly handed out “red, white and blue backpacks covered in stars and stripes to some of the children at the center. “Photos from her visit to the science center show the First Lady smiling alongside the children and her Polish counterpart as she holds a hot-pink toy high heel, which perfectly matched the stripes on her designer dress,” Mail Online reports.
Melania is not trying to make an impression on anyone but the children who she prioritizes over irrelevant people’s opinions of her. Proof of that is that she doesn’t often bring an entourage to document her hospital visits and stays for a substantial amount of time so she can interact with each child individually.
