Though she has visited many worldwide destinations while accompanying President Donald Trump - including Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy, France, Poland, Turkey, China, South Korea, Japan, England and Belgium - she had yet to branch out on her own for a significant journey.

Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, spelled out the willful refusal by many to take the first lady's message as honest and needed, whatever the president's actions may be, calling Mrs. Trump "independent".

ROCKVILLE, MD - AUGUST 20: US first lady Melania Trump delivers remarks during a Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention summit.

When asked about the pinstriped dress Trump wore, he told Page Six, "She purchased a dress from a store, and I think she looked lovely in it".

"I am well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic", she said at the time.

She rejected his advice, and publicly said she was willing to face the criticism.
