First Lady Melania Trump is back in New York City after spending Tuesday in the nation’s capital to watch her husband address his first joint session of Congress, and on Thursday she decided to spend some time giving back.
The 46-year-old was spotted exiting Trump Tower a little before 11am and making her way into a waiting car to spend the afternoon reading books to sick children at New York Presbyterian hospital.
The First Lady hid her perfectly contoured face behind a pair of oversized sunglasses while braving the March chill in a black overcoat draped over a royal blue sweater.
She arrived to the hospital at 11.04am and got to work talking to the young patients and reading from one of the many Dr. Suess books she brought along with her, which were carried out to the car by an aide in a white box decorated with gold ribbon.
‘I came to encourage you to read,’ Melania told the children before launching into Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
She later added that she wanted the children to think about ‘what you want to achieve in life.’
