Melania Trump took off to Texas to meet with Hurricane Harvey first responders just after hours when her husband made an announcement that the U.S. formally recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.
For the trip, the 47-year-old first lady was joined by Vice President Mike Pence’s wife Karen, 59, and they were in a great mood when they shook hands with the local heroes on Wednesday upon their arrival.
Melania stayed warm in olive green puffy coat by Rag & Bone, which she wore over a brown turtleneck and skinny green pants, while the second lady wore a modest black jacket over a button-down shirt.
Even though she received lot of criticism for wearing sky-high heels when visited Hurricane Harvey flood zones in August, Melania chose brown stiletto boots for her latest trip to Texas.
The former model wore her highlighted brown hair loose around her shoulders and she stuck to natural-looking make-up for the visit.
Following the warm welcoming of the first responders at the Coastal Bend, the two women traveled to Rockport to meet a family who lost their home in the storm.
During the visit, Melania and Karen had a chance to see the remains of the family’s home, as well as the FEMA manufactured residence they are living in now.
The first lady’s Director of Communications Stephanie Grisham was happy to tweet a photo of Melania and Karen ordering their meals.
‘On our way out of town, @FLOTUS & @SecondLady decided to stop in to @Whataburger for some lunch! The American chain opened its 1st restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950!’ she wrote.
