Who better to learn from about being a First Lady than from the woman who currently holds the position herself?! Melania Trump heard from the best of the best when she met up with Michelle Obama at the White House on Nov. 10. See them greeting each other here!
Melania Trump, 46, has some BIG shoes to fill when she takes over the title of First Lady from Michelle Obama this January. Once her husband, Donald Trump, 70, is officially inaugurated as president, Melania will have a huge new role of her own, and she started the transition process by meeting with Michelle at the White House on Nov. 10 while her husband took some pointers from Barack Obama.
“[First Lady] Michelle has had a chance to meet the incoming first lady and they had an excellent conversation as well,” the president told reporters after the Trumps came to visit. “We want to make sure they feel welcome as they prepare to make this transition.” We only have one photo of the meeting between Melania and Michelle, but it’s a good one!
The two ladies can be seen chatting enthusiastically in the gorgeous Yellow Room of the White House, and Melania is listening carefully as Michelle seems to be explaining something with gusto. Both women look stunning, of course. Melania is wearing a simply black knee-length frock as her gorgeous balayaged hair flows smoothly over her shoulders. The ever-classy Michelle wore a navy blue dress with a pop of color in an orange streak across the front. Her silver shoes added a little more fun to the look, and we love them! If only we knew what these stunning ladies were talking about!
The 46-year-old was noticeably missing throughout much of Donald’s campaigning — she said her focus was on being a mother to the pair’s 10-year-old son, Barron, first, which is why she was absent from the trail until the very end. However, being First Lady comes with a lot more responsibilities, so she’ll have to be much more in the spotlight. Find out her plans once she’s in the White House HERE.
And while Melania and Michelle have their first professional pow-wow, President Obama is also meeting with Donald to officially welcome him to the White House. Although the President campaigned hard for Hillary Clinton, 69, before the election, the reality is that Donald was elected, and on Nov. 9, Obama promised to do whatever it took to ensure the smoothest transition possible for America.
During his post-election speech, President Obama reminded Americans that we are “all on one team” and that we have to work together to be the best country we can, even if the election results aren’t what some of us wanted. Truth!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Melania and Michelle would get along outside of politics?
