United States President Donald J. Trump, center left, and First Lady Melania Trump, center right, went to a United States Marine base, along with Chief Of Staff John Kelly.

Trump brought his wife to the marine barracks to meet some of the fine young men serving to protect the country. And Melania seemed very impressed with some of the men.

President Trump and the First Lady were at the barracks to meet with Marines who responded to a building fire at the Arthur Capper Public Housing complex on September 9, 2018.

And by the look on Melania's face, she seems happy that she decided to go.


Besides willing to risk it all at Melania said on Thursday that she isn’t surprised by the criticism directed at her “Be Best” campaign, which, in part, addresses cyberbullying and urges parents to teach their children about using social media responsibly.

She said during a speech at the Family Online Safety Institute’s annual conference: “It is not news or surprising to me that critics & the media have chosen to ridicule me for speaking out on this issue, and that’s OK. I remain committed to tackling this topic because it will provide a better world for our children.” 

According to NPR, the first lady has also faced criticism for not appearing to be advancing her “Be Best” anti-bullying campaign, which was officially launched on May 7.
