First Lady Melania Trump is expected to make her first public appearance in front of press cameras. This comes after 26 days away from cameras — her last appearance being on May 10.
According to CNN, Melania will join her husband for a visit to Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters in Washington. During the visit, Melania and President Trump will discuss preparedness ahead of the 2018 hurricane season, which officially began on June 1.
The FEMA visit will represent an interest from the first lady in hurricane recovery efforts.
It is interesting to note that she did not attend this annual briefing with the president in 2017. But the first lady did very notably travel with her husband to the most devastated areas of the 2017 hurricane season, including Florida, Texas, and Puerto Rico. She also helped to survey the damage and helped to hand out supplies during the storm.
Furthermore, in December, the first lady returned to Texas without her husband to visit Corpus Christi and unveil a FEMA trailer. She also brought Christmas gifts to a family whose home was lost to Hurricane Harvey. This is, of course, only one of many examples of Melania Trump's active role in responding to hurricane recovery efforts.
Although this will be her first appearance in front of cameras, it is not her first public appearance in the last month. On Monday, the first lady attended an event at the White House with President Trump honoring more than 40 Gold Star families.
Her public debut since having a medical procedure has therefore already occurred, although the event was closed to the press.
"Tonight @POTUS & I were honored to pay tribute to our fallen heroes. Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance," she said.
In recent news, Tim Tebow just made the surprising remark that he doesn't care to be remembered for sports.
