Lucky military families got the chance to meet our “delightful” and very “genuine” First Lady Melania Trump during a stopover to refuel in Alaska. She was all bundled up and cozy in a down coat that was perfect for the cold in Alaska. She received a very warm greeting from military families during her short visit…

She made a refueling stop at the Anchorage base en route back to Washington, D.C., after spending the last week with President Donald Trump in South Korea and China. The president continued his official visit to Asia.

Melania Trump, wearing a three-quarter length winter coat over a brown turtle neck and white slacks, spent about 35 minutes visiting with children and teachers.

“Any time we have an opportunity to share with others what our program does and the educational basis for all the activities that we do, it’s a chance to show our story and to share with other individuals how we serve our military population,” said Tamra De Benedetto, who oversees all activities at the base for children under age 18.

Trump viewed items children made on a 3D printer, saw sewing projects, and watched as they constructed fish out of compact discs, glitter and gems.

THE FIRST LADY EXITED THE PLANE  IN A CASUAL BUT CHIC ENSEMBLE:

“Every program we offer has an educational purpose and a reason for why we do it,” De Benedetto said.

De Benedetto said she exchanged a few private words with Trump. “She is just delightful and very genuine,” she said.

Trump didn’t make a public speech or address reporters, but did take time to shake hands and talk briefly with parents and military members who flocked to the community center.
