Melania Trump has decided to focus on her duties as FLOTUS by touring a beautiful garden in Florida with the Japanese Prime Minister’s wife, Akie Abe. Hours after getting slammed for spending too much time in her comfortable apartment at Trump Tower, First Lady Melania Trump was a vision of white as she escorted Akie Abe at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden in Delray Beach, Florida. Mrs. Trump also made news by revealing that she will indeed be keeping former First Lady Michelle Obama’s famous White House garden.
Barron’s mother looked stunning in a sweater dress and matching cardigan. Following the latest fashion trend started by Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid, Mrs. Trump wore her cardigan on her shoulders. The former model also sported her wide sunglasses during the public outing and carried around a fan which appears to have Japanese motifs on it.
As for the outspoken Mrs. Abe, she looked very elegant in a white blouse and black skirt. The two ladies, who were being followed by a pool of reporters, were seen smiling and chatting a storm as they explored the garden with a park administrator named Bonnie White Lemay.
It was Mrs. Trump’s first public appearance as the first lady of the United States without her husband who was photographed miles away happily playing golf with the Japanese prime minister. Just moments ago, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, senior adviser to the first lady said in a statement that Mrs. Obama’s garden would be cared for by Mrs. Trump’s staff.
Michelle took pride in a very productive garden which she cultivated at the White House to teach children about healthy eating habits. It produced various fruits and vegetables that were used by the personal chefs of POTUS and FLOTUS.
Wolkoff explained that Melania sees herself as a nurturer and a mother, which is why gardening is important to her. She said: “The First Lady has a deep personal commitment to her role as caretaker and nurturer, beginning with her family.”
The statement went on to say: “She believes there is a connection between a child’s mind and places of calm and beauty to be used as a tool for us all. As a mother and as the First Lady of this country, Mrs. Trump is committed to the preservation and continuation of the White House Gardens, specifically the First Lady’s Kitchen Garden and the Rose Garden.”
Mrs. Trump also shared some brief remarks on her meeting with Mrs. Abe that read: “I hope that together Mrs. Abe and I can continue to inspire our youth to enjoy the beauty around them and to restore their minds in the peacefulness of their surroundings.”
It is not known if the two ladies will take part in other outings during their weekend stay in the Sunshine State.
