Melania Trump is not Michelle Obama, she needs to prove her ability to be a real White House hostess. In March, two months after an inauguration, she is slowly starting to embrace her new position as the First lady as her approval ratings soar. This alarming signal made Melania hurry up and to take on more roles at her husband’s side to keep the Americans’ approval.
Mrs Trump wasn’t ready to hold the position of the FLOTUS immediately, she held her first big luncheon at the White House in March only, the event was dedicated to an International Women’s Day.
Why was Melania so busy during these two months after an inauguration? She and Donald lived separately because of their son Barron who lives with mum in New York while President’s residence is in Washington, DC. Melania Trump needed a certain transition period to keep the things together, and now, the ex-model is taking her first steps into her very public new role.
Melania Trump as the FLOTUS: approval rating raised up to 52 percent
Americans seem to be thrilled that their first lady’s has reemerged into the spotlight, as Mrs. Trump’s popularity has seen a dramatic spike since inauguration day in late January.
The first lady invited for the IWD luncheon the group of high-powered women including ambassadors, Cabinet members, at least one U.S. senator and stepdaughter Ivanka Trump. These ladies joined Melania at the White House, she strode into the State Dining Room for her first solo White House event after an announcer intoned:
‘Ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the United States, Melania Trump,’
and was greeted by the all-female group of about 50 people.
