First Lady Melania Trump has made a secret trip to visit wounded service members. Melania headed to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after traveling to the Washington-area hospital on an under-the-radar trip that the White House only announced after she had arrived.
The first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said on Twitter that Mrs. Trump was visiting with “combat-injured service members & their families.”
“This administration will never stop supporting our men & women in uniform & the families who love them. Thank you!!!” she added.
Mrs. Trump took to Twitter later Tuesday to exclaim that she had a “wonderful visit.” She also offered thanks to the “many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.”

Making unannounced trips is becoming something of a habit for the First Lady. At the end of last month, Melania visited a children’s holding center where kids were being looked after while their parents faced prosecution for illegally crossing the border.
Yesterday, I visited @CBParizona facilities & a nonprofit social service shelter of @hhsgov in #Arizona. Thank you to the compassionate & dedicated law enforcement & care providers working hard to secure our nation & take care of children in a difficult situation. @CBP #USBP pic.twitter.com/goFdaJCaWt
