Melania Trump: a look back

The first lady of the United States of America (FLOTUS) is an unofficial title usually held by the wife of the president. Should a president be unmarried, or a widower,  he usually asks a relative or friend to act as White House hostess.

Every 4 years, a president of the United States is democratically elected by the Americans, and with every new president comes an other first lady to the white house. The 1st first  lady of the United States of America was Martha Washington, wife of George Washington. United States of America has 46 president (including the current one, Joe Biden, whose term began in 2021), 45 of them have lived in the white house, apart from George Washington who oversaw the construction of the white house. We can see that presidents comes and go but institutions stays.

The first lady play a very important role in the daily life of the American people. Despite the responsibility handle by the FLOTUS in a daily basis ,they do not receive a salary, as it is not an official post in the administration.

Melania Trump is the 45th president of the united states of america Donald Jr. Trump’s wife . On January 20th. 2017, Melania Trump become the first lady, a moment she celebrated with great joy with the trumps and the Americans who voted for Donald jr. Trump . She was born on April 26, 1970, in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. She is the second first lady born outside of the United States, and she is the only first lady to become a naturalized U.S. citizen. Like the first ladies before her, Mrs. Trump has made her mark on history.

Four years have passed, Donald jr. Trump has lost the election, a new president is elected (Joe Biden the 46 president of the united states of america), that means who ever lost the election has to vacate the white house to the president elect, including the first lady. During Melania Trump’s 4 years in the white house, we look back to see what she has achieved.

The role of the first lady has never been officially defined, and this have changed over time considerably, that involves :

  1. championship of the social causes: first lady Melania Trump has championed a campaign that she have called “Be Best”, this is an awareness campaign, dedicated to the most vulnerable and fragile people especially children. She have traveled to Africa to raise awareness.
  2. Involvement in Political campaign: Melania Trump has supported and stood by her husband Donald Jr. Trump side till the last minute, she campaigned with him en his first term ,and then again but he lost the election.

  4. Representing the president at official and ceremonial occasions, which she manage to do it quite well and the video blow of her delivering a farewell remarks on her final days in the White House.

Finally Melania Trump has managed to stay in the white house for 4 years , media and individuals in America especially and around the world have showed lots of interest in the daily life of the First lady. She will remain the focus of lots of people even after Donald Jr. Trump has left office, and her influence will live on.
