MEALS DELIVERED SAFELY

She revealed how the first lady was continuing to “reach out to people in a variety of ways” as we navigate these difficult times. Trump also made sure to adhere to social distancing guidelines when delivering the items, according to Grisham.

People at the hospital were protected by having the meals sent “securely with a contact-free delivery.” Before sending food to the hospital, Trump also donated lunches to Trader Joe’s staff.
