WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is playing the supportive spouse as Melania Trump unveils her initiatives as first lady.
Trump sat in the front row in the Rose Garden Monday as his wife outlined her plan, dubbed “Be Best,” to support children, with a focus on well-being, cyber-bullying and opioid addiction.
At the conclusion of Mrs. Trump’s remarks, the president kissed her on the cheeks and thanked her before signing a proclamation declaring May 7 “Be Best” day.
Trump called it a “beautiful” and “heartfelt” speech.
The announcement from Mrs. Trump comes as her husband battles accusations about his past encounters with women. Porn actress Stormy Daniels is seeking to be released from a nondisclosure agreement barring her from speaking about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
