Melania Trump visited Ohio wearing a crisp white skirt suit with polka-dot details.

On Friday the first lady and President Trump boarded Marine One from the White House to Columbus, Ohio, where they visited the Nationwide Children’s Hospital and, later that night, attended the Ohio Republican Party state dinner. During the flight from D.C., Melania wore a white skirt with a matching Michael Kors jacket, a black blouse with white polka dots, and white stilettos. 

After landing, the first couple toured the neonatal unit of the hospital, which treats babies born addicted to opioids, reported the Star Tribune, followed by the president sitting with children who colored American flags and telling them, “Great job.” Opioid abuse is one of several issues Melania targets in her “Be Best” campaign, which she launched in May, along with cyberbullying and wellness.


After the tour, the Trumps attended the Ohio Republican Party state dinner, where the president was a keynote speaker.

POTUS concluded a newsy week during which his former attorney Michael Cohen admitted to handling payments to women who allege to have slept with the president while he was married to Melania, according to CNN. Adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal have shared their version of events, although the president has denied both stories.

Melania is making her own plans, announcing Monday her upcoming solo trip to Africa. “This will be my first time traveling to Africa and I am excited to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history,” the 48-year-old said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.

Melania’s trip struck social media, where President Trump’s January comments that African nations were “s***hole countries” echoed.

And on Monday while delivering a speech on cyberbullying in Rockville, Md., Melania spoke of “destructive and harmful” behavior on social media while her husband tweeted that Robert Mueller and his department investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 election were a “group of Angry Democrat Thugs.” 

Next week the first lady will take part in a tree-planting ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House.
