Melania Trump always looks great… but grabbing that shovel proves she’s a full-blooded American.
As the First Lady—and wife of Donald Trump—Melania Trump gets plenty of scrutiny.
The American people love her. An immigrant who came here and become a legal citizen, she embodies the American dream.
Despite heavy criticism from bitter liberals, Melania continues to impress citizens and the world.
This week she attended a special ceremony on the White House grounds and as usual, the talk was about her impeccable fashion.
But she wasn’t there to be eye candy for the cameras. Stunning many, she picked up a shovel and participated in the historic moment…
From The Western Journal:
First lady Melania Trump had the fashion world buzzing this week when instead of the kind of grubby work clothes many folks wear when they plant a tree, she was decked out in stiletto heels and a $4,000 dress.
On Monday, the first lady was joined by the descendants of past presidents as she planted an oak tree to replace one that fell during a storm…
The tree being planted was a sapling that came from the original Eisenhower oak in an East Wing garden created by Jacqueline Kennedy, Fox News reported.
I had the honor to contribute to the beautiful & historic @WhiteHouse grounds today by planting a sapling from the Eisenhower Oak. Thank you to @WhiteHouseHstry for organizing the #PresidentialSites and to the previous first family descendants who joined us today. pic.twitter.com/uqzKxNbL9H

The Guardian’s gardening expert Alys Fowler defended Melania’s fashion choice. She said:
“There is nothing wrong with wearing a skirt to garden in. Skirts are free-moving.”
Leave it to Melania Trump to wear clothing that is both appropriate and eye-catching.
But Melania is no wallflower or eye candy: she was happy to help plant this tree that replaces the great Eisenhower’s oak tree.
Also attending the event was a descendant of President James Monroe. The day marked the 200th anniversary of when Monroe moved back into the White House after it was burned during the War of 1812.
The First Lady did not let talk of her fashion choices overshadow such a momentous day, which proves she’s an extremely patriotic person.
This day was about history, and this tree will be a reminder of three administrations and their important roles. Monroe, Eisenhower, and Trump all served during crucial periods in our history.
This tree unites all three leaders and will be remembered for years to come.
