Melania Trump has always been the complimenting piece to the Trump puzzle. While many of the Trumps have their own respective niches — as does Melania — she always seems to make time to help them with their projects, too. She’s supportive and brings a strong sense of class back to the White House that has been missing for many years.
The first family is currently on their first international tour where they are making stops in various countries to discuss business, jobs, and ways to work together that allow both countries to mutually benefit. President Trump gave a keynote speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudi Arabia, where he made it clear that terrorist organizations should fear what is coming for them, that other nations in the Middle East need to step-up and finally start helping with the fight against terrorism, and he called out Iran and Syria as the guilty parties of global terrorism.
Melania, however, is also generating a lot of buzz from the Arab News Media as being a much better first lady than Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama ever were. Melania is not only receiving compliments about her beauty and modest nature, but also how polite she is.
As reported by Arab News:
“The first lady’s decision to visit Saudi Arabia without a wearing a head covering prompted headlines across the globe on Saturday — but many in the Kingdom took to social media to comment on her classy and conservative look.
Melania Trump landed in the Saudi capital of Riyadh wearing a Stella McCartney jumpsuit adorned with a statement belt, which was the most eye-catching feature of the all-black overall.
The stretch cady jumpsuit — with wide-leg silhouette, keyhole cut-out at the bust, and cuffed sleeves — caught the attention of many international media outlets and was admired by Saudis who appreciated the modest, yet classy look of the first lady.
“Melania Trump before leaving the United States vs. Melania while landing in Saudi Arabia. Respect for the country’s traditions,” one Twitter user said with a thumbs-up. “Not only modest, but elegant at the same time.”
The Arab News paper was highlighting what many of already knew. When former first lady’s like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama visited, they never generated as much attention — in a positive way — like Melania was able to capture.
The country was able to see beyond Melania’s beauty and into the fact that she was very intelligent, classy, modest, and was appreciative of the opportunity to be in another country aiming to bring more positive news back to the United States. Melania understands that she is just as important to our country and the president is, and we need both of them to continue to work for us every single day to make the lives of all Americans better.
Melania also received widespread support when both she and Ivanka Trump refused to wear a headscarf in the Muslim nation, breaking away from both Hillary and Michelle cowering and wearing one on their trips.
Russia Today reported:
America’s first lady has not been “ordered” to dress conservatively in Saudi Arabia, the country chosen by her husband as his first official overseas destination. Along with meetings on the US president’s itinerary, there will also reportedly be time for entertainment in the lavish Arab kingdom.
While the choice of the first country to be visited by Trump as America’s 45th president has been widely discussed in the media, a question has arisen whether there is a chance to see the US president’s wife covered in a traditionally strict Muslim attire.
Women in Saudi Arabia, including foreign visitors, are typically expected to wear a floor length dress – abaya, and a head scarf. However, when asked whether the US first lady would have to dress accordingly, a Saudi Arabia official said Riyadh “usually doesn’t demand” a specific dress-code, but rather “accepts suggestions.”
“We welcome any style in clothing,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir told the media on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
Islamic culture is one that suppresses women, forces them to attend to all of their husband’s needs, and that is not something the Trump’s were going to cower to. Other countries are free to do whatever they please, but it is nice knowing that this First Family won’t allow Islam to dictate how they dress or what they are allowed to wear in other countries.
In the United States, we have our own culture — we allow for freedom of expression. Allowing another country to take that away from us, especially our First Family, would be a disgrace.
Kudos to Melania and Ivanka Trump for standing up to the oppressive culture and daring to showcase freedom, boldness, and toughness while acting on before of the United States of America!
