Melania Trump made another secret trip Tuesday, though she stayed a little closer to home.
The first lady visited with wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after traveling to the Washington-area hospital on a trip the White House did not publicly announce until after she had arrived.
That shows that even on this great day our First Family doesn’t forget the people that gave everything for our country!
Today we celebrate the signing of our Declaration of Independence, the birth of our great nation. Our Independence from Great Britain. Our freedom. Our prosperity. So for that, enjoy yourself today.
For today Trump’s Fourth of July plans involve a picnic and firework display that will be broadcast across the nation.
“I’m delighted to welcome this new addition to the annual White House July 4th celebration,” First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement referencing the White House festivities. “Americans will be able to tune in from their homes and be part of the festivities. Thank you to the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation, and the event sponsors for helping make this possible.”
They will be welcoming military families to the South Lawn for an afternoon picnic. In the evening, staff and guests will join the military families to enjoy the traditional fireworks display provided by the National Park Service,” the White House announced in late June.
Below you can view some of the photos from today:
