Melania Trump has proudly signed off from her first foreign trip as first lady before walking to Air Force One hand-in-hand with the president.
In a rare speech for Mrs Trump, the first lady addressed US military personnel at a naval base in Italy on Saturday afternoon ahead of the trip back to Washington with Donald Trump.
The trip took the Trumps to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy where Melania spent time with Pope Francis and at various children’s hospitals.
‘It has been a great trip and many strides have been made,’ Mrs Trump said.
My husband worked very hard on behalf of our country and I’m very proud of him.
‘This trip has also been incredible for me as first lady.’
The 47-year-old said she was honored and blessed to have been granted an audience with Pope Francis, and she shared stories of her time spent with sick children in various hospitals.
She recalled meeting one specific boy at Vatican’s children’s hospital in Rome on Wednesday.
‘Just hours after leaving, a young boy I spent time with found out he had received a new heart donor. Receiving that news is a moment I will never forget and I wish him a speedy recovery,’ she said.
The first lady also recalled drawing pictures with children in Brussels and one child gave her a picture that said: ‘We are all the same.’
‘This trip for me has been very special and I will never forget the women and children I met,’ she told the crowd.
President Trump gave Melania a kiss and held her hands before they got on the plane.
