Melania Trump steps up pace of public events, without saying a word to the media

We haven’t heard much from first lady Melania Trump in recent weeks since she got a White House national security official reassigned , so it’s noteworthy that she’s scheduled two public occasions this week for speaking out.

She’s delivering remarks but she’s not taking questions. She does not feel the need to be in the media spotlight that much, says her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.

On Tuesday, Trump and second lady Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, traveled a block from the White House to the headquarters of the American Red Cross to help assemble military comfort kits for American troops who have been deployed in Iraq, Poland, Kuwait and Djibouti. 

She briefly addressed volunteers at the event, which is a fairly typical FLOTUS engagement: Former first lady Laura Bush did the same in December 2008.
