First Lady Melania Trump looked chic in her simple, Navy-inspired ensemble during her surprise visit at a military hospital in Maryland.
On July 3rd, just before Independence Day, Trump surprised the injured men and women in uniform, along with their families, at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
Trump arrived in style and appeared patriotic with her navy blue blouse and culotte pants. Her shirt was tucked into the pants which made her outfit seem like a business casual look. Her heels were also navy in color and had a snakeskin-like texture.
She wore minimal jewelry, and her loose curls were worn down around her shoulders. Check out some of Trump’s iconic looks over the years. Follow us on Twitter at AmoMama USA.
The White House did not announce the 48-year-old First Lady’s visit to the public until after she arrived.
Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham only tweeted about the visit on the day, emphasizing that it was an unannounced visit.
She also wrote, 'This administration will never stop supporting our men & women in uniform & the families who love them. Thank you!'
Trump also shared a series of snapshots on her Instagram page, showing her meetings with the patients at the hospital.
She shared that she had a ‘wonderful visit’ at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. She then added, 'Thank you to the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.'
One of the photos revealed Trump posing with U.S. Army Captain Luis Avila.
In 2011, he became almost completely paralyzed after an improvised explosive device exploded too close to him during a combat tour.
Another photo showed the First Lady having a serious conversation with an Army man who lost both of his legs and was seated in a wheelchair.
Trump also paid the hospital’s employees a visit to the medical center’s gym. She posed for a photo alongside them as well.
In May 2018, Trump was also a patient at the hospital and stayed there for five days after she underwent kidney surgery.
