First Lady dedicates 'healing' garden at children's hospital

First Lady Melania Trump visited the Children's National Health System in Washington to help the hospital mark the official opening of a healing garden dedicated to all the first ladies of the U.S., the media reported.

"It has always been my belief that the nurturing and positive environment is vital to the health and well-being of all children", Melania Trump said. "Melania is an unbelievable mother", she previously told People.

The former Slovenian model, who turned 47 earlier this week, is apparently a very private person who has little interest in politics, Ohio University professor Katherine Jellison, whose research has partly focused on USA first ladies, told EFE.

First lady Melania Trump has largely kept a low profile since her husband President Donald Trump took office in January - but she has had some headline-making moments.

Telesco also said the Chargers had discussions about trading down, but made a decision to stay put and take Williams at No. 7. "He's a great quarterback and I am looking forward to getting to the facility and start catching balls from him".

Ivanka has had a busy week herself between ringing in the First Lady's birthday to her travels to Berlin, but she made sure to make time for her kids.

It's a much different picture that on inauguration day when President Trump awkwardly left her behind while greeting the Obamas at the White House.

Jellison said she can not envision Melania advising or differing with her husband on political matters, although she said she may give him recommendations relating to his style as the head of state, such as urging him to stop sending out his regular daily barrage of early-morning tweets.

Melania's birthday week has been filled with events, as just a day earlier she welcomed Argentina's president to the White House.

American Airlines Group's (AAL) "In-Line" Rating Reaffirmed at Imperial Capital
Following the sale, the director now directly owns 35,077 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $1,586,181.94. American Airlines Group Inc . has a beta of 0.94 and the weekly and monthly volatility stands at 2.22% and 2.32% respectively.

The learning curve has been steep.

During the campaign, Mrs. Trump promised to combat cyberbullying as first lady. Most recently she's focused on women's empowerment and access to education.

As she continues to define her causes, she is also expected to build her east wing staff. Although she has yet to move into the White House with her husband, she was on hand to welcome Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, and his wife, Juliana Awada.

Melania's visit to children's hospital Friday is another sign that she's learning to dive in a bit more, and engage the press, more evidence she's taking on this role as first lady.
