President Donald Trump revealed on Thursday that First Lady Melania Trump was at the Southern border, visiting facilities detaining children who entered the country illegally.
The president revealed the nature of her trip during a cabinet meeting at the White House.
It really bothered her as it bothered me, as it bothered everybody at this table, Trump said. Were all bothered by it.
The First Ladys Communications Director Stephanie Grisham spoke about the trip during the flight to Texas with reporters.
She wanted to see everything for herself. She supports family reunification. She thinks that its important that children stay with their families, she said.
The First Lady is scheduled to tour two law enforcement facilities in McAllen Texas The Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center and a Customs and Border Patrol/DHS intake center.
She first appeared at the New Hope Childrens Shelter, an HHS grantee facility run by Lutheran Social Services to care for the children.
During the visit, the First Lady asked the managers of the facility if the children were well cared for, educated, and had access to communicate with their parents or adult family members.
This was 100 percent her idea. She absolutely wanted to come, Grisham said. She wants to see whats happening for herself and she wants to lend her support.

That pitch is coming in right over the plate about 90 mph so I have to send it over the fence. They will say that it shows Melania has had with him and this is the real beginning of her separating from the President by showing him up.
Expecting the hate-mongers to chime in (in unison) in 3...2...1...
Bad move. Smacks of Trump admitting he was wrong so he sends his wife to meet with then children.
Ducks are always jealous of swans
Indeed. Just more blood in the water.
In America all your dreams can come true.
My dream is to push my Niece's Illegal Mexican Father out of a Helicopter over the Pacific Ocean.
Excellent move. Everyone knows that Michele Obama made many visits to the border and detention centers her husband ran...oh wait, she didn’t go there? She went to Paris and Martha’s Vineyard instead? Well, sure hope the media doesn’t pick up on that, it would make the Obamas look heartless and cruel...
Thats the way the MSM and Rabid Libs will spin it. But she did the right thing for non political reasons, unlike wookie and Laura Boosh, and thats what true American patriots will see.
Oh wait til the wailing and thrashing comes out over this. Now he’s REALLY using these kids as pawns.
The only negative would be that she didn’t just ignore this farce or didn’t remind everyone she came here the legal way.
Bet she wore heels. The horrors!
They are pure evil from the pit of hell.
No doubt she went to view which ones would be suitable for sale to pedos.
You can bet your bippy they will
You can bet your bippy they will
Melania illustrates the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VIRTUE SIGNALING AND ACTUAL VIRTUE.
I agree completely. The evil is on display for all to see.
Just last night I was telling my husband, we must always remember when dealing with liberals...their base belief is that killing babies is OK in their sick evil minds. Therefore, being that they are fine with the worst evil imaginable...they sleep well doing all other evil things. They do serve the devil, literally.
Agreed. Also plays into the idea of Melania as some sort of liberal captive to Trump.
