First Lady Melania Trump wore a stunning lemon yellow Christian Dior dress to accompany her husband for dinner with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space museum on the Hudson River.
The color has special meaning to Australians – it’s their national color.
While the event was a chance to reaffirm good relations with Australia, the best part was when veterans were honored during the dinner to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea during the Second World War
This battle started America and Australia’s partnership and support of each other during world turmoil.
President Trump said about Australia and the United States that they’re, “rebellious children of the same parent.”
Melania tweeted out after the event:
The President and First Lady made a triumphant return to New York City after celebrating the House passage of a repeal of Obamacare.

Daily Mail reported:
The President commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea during WWII onboard the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum where he was joined by his wife, youngest daughter Tiffany Trump, actor John Travolta, News Corp Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, Greg Norman and Gina Rinehart.
Murdoch, 86, introduced Trump during the American Australian Association gala event that was attended by roughly 700 guests. The Australian media titan got a special greeting from Trump: a presidential hug in front of a global audience including his nation’s prime minister.
Trump’s visit to the Big Apple was shorter than first expected so that he could commemorate the House vote with a Rose Garden news conference:
After years of debate, the House on Thursday voted to repeal key parts of the Affordable Care Act and replace them with new provisions.
But winning approval for the bill could be even more difficult in the Senate than it has been in the House, where Republican leaders struggled for nearly two months to wrangle enough votes in their caucus to secure its passage.
The bill passed by a vote of 217 to 213. All 193 Democrats voting opposed the bill; they were joined by 20 Republicans voting “no.”
