A radiant Melania Trump visited a children’s hospital earlier this month, continuing a tradition that has been carried out for many years.
After touring the hospital, the first lady sat down with Santa and answered questions from a small group of patients before reading the “Polar Express.”
One young patient named Andy, asked Melania if she could spend the holidays anywhere in the world, where would she go?
To which she replied, “I would spend my holidays on a deserted, tropical island with my family,” prompting laughter and cheers from the audience.
The day made for a myriad of touching and festive photos as can be seen while first lady Melania Trump visited Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
