The joy of one young man upon seeing Mrs. Trump is evident. Standing at the end of the row to Mrs. Trump’s left, his feelings shine as bright as a Christmas tree star.
Arriving at the charity with Suzanne Johnson, wife of US Ambassador Woody Johnson, Mrs. Trump, and Mrs. Johnson were joined by Marines from the US Embassy.
Wearing a black and white checkered coat, Melania spent time talking with the children before they sang Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas Is You’ for her.
She donated footballs with her ‘Be Best’ logo to the centre.
Mrs. Trump was greeted by dozens of well-behaved schoolchildren (a contrast to our children in Baltimore) wearing blue and green Santa hats with festive music adding to the Holiday ambiance.
Mrs. Trump helped to wrap Christmas presents and make holiday wreaths with the children.
Her visit comes as world leaders gathered to meet in London during for the NATO summit, which is the alliance’s 70th.
