First lady Melania Trump was back in Washington today and hosted her first luncheon in her new role 

 

( Daily Mail ) First lady Melania Trump made a rare appearance at the White House today, as she hosted a ladies luncheon in the State Dining Room in honor of International Women’s Day.

‘As an immigrant myself, having grown up in a communist society, I know all too well the value and importance of freedom and equal opportunity,’ the first lady said, according to prepared remarks provided to CNN. ‘Ideas which this great nation was founded and has continued to strive towards throughout its history.’  

The White House also announced that there would indeed be an Easter Egg Roll this year, which will be held on Monday, April 17, as it’s tradition to host the event a day after the Easter holiday.

At the luncheon, the first lady was dressed in a black Ralph Lauren – and not the red many protesters are wearing in solidarity today – and was given a standing ovation when she entered the room.

Later on, both President Trump and Vice President Pence dropped by to say hi to the crowd
