First Lady Melania Trump has been participating in her own events in Saudi Arabia, visiting a school and a business center.

The First Lady and First Daughter Ivanka Trump have been focusing on women’s issues in Saudi Arabia, the first leg of the president’s five-state foreign trip, his first in office. The president and First Lady spent several days in Saudi Arabia, where Trump on May 21 delivered a speech on extremist Islamic terrorism to a group of Muslim leaders.

“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations,” Donald Trump said in the speech, which called for a coalition to defeat terrorists. “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”

According to ABC news, she “visited classrooms and gave several Dr. Seuss books to a preschool class,” and a school chorus “sang the song ‘Lean on me.’”

At the other stop, Trump visited what ABC News called “an all-women GE business center in Riyadh where she spoke to women there about the center’s work and work-life balance in general.”

“I love children. It’s my passion,” she said, according to ABC.

The White House previously announced that Melania would accompany her husband on each part of the trip and would attend some events on her own.

“On Friday, May 19, 2017, the First Lady will join her husband President Donald J. Trump on an eight-day, five-stop trek to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Israel, Rome, Brussels, and Sicily, returning to Washington, DC, on Saturday, May 27, 2017,” the White House Press Office said in a statement.

“The First Lady will join her husband throughout each day, but will also participate in many of her own events. In the latter part of the trip, Mrs. Trump will attend spousal programs at the NATO and G-7 summits,” the statement said. “She will conclude the trip by delivering remarks to United States military personnel and families in Italy.”

Ivanka Trump is also attending events on her own in Saudi Arabia focused on women’s issues, although she was photographed behind her father during his speech on terrorism.

Melania has eschewed wearing a headscarf during the journey, although her husband once criticized Michelle Obama for doing the same. Melania wore a khaki dress on the Sunday tours but arrived in Saudi Arabia in a black pantsuit with large gold belt:

When will Don Trumpleone’s family start paying attention to “men’s issues”? When will so-called egalitarians like Ivanka and Melania begin (50 years after the National Organization for Women was founded) to attend pro-male events that deal with subjects like:

Anti-male divorce laws.
Male-only combat obligations.
Male genital mutilation.
Male homelessness.
Male on-the-job deaths.
Male suicide rates.
Mockings of male suffering (“We feminists bathe in male tears!”).
Male lower life expectancies.
Males treated a success objects: valued only for their utility to others.
Anti-male college admissions and loans.
The lack of men’s centers and “Masculine Studies” at universities.
Boys being raped by female teachers deemed a joke.
Male-only colleges being sued out of existence while female-only schools, gyms, hospital wings, postage stamps, roadraces, times in coed healthclubs, courses, libraries, loans, clubs, etc. expand. The Boys Club was ended, replaced by the Boys and Girls Club…while Girls, Inc. remained. The YMCA welcomes females while the YWCA is for women-only.
Females not being kicked in crotches in movies for audience amusement.
One female soldierette’s paper-cut behind frontlines outweighing 10,000 male combat deaths.

Why is their a total denial that males do most of the dirty, dangerous jobs in life? If all men went on-strike for a month, civilization would collapse because it’s almost always males who do the hard work of driving long-haul trucks, mining coal, mining diamonds, mining copper, mining other minerals, drilling for oil, harvesting crabs, deep-sea fishing, stringing high-tension electrical wires, creating dams, tunneling, logging, being steeplejacks, building suspension bridges, installing elevators, repairing escalators, building skyscrapers, washing high-rise windows, cleaning septic tanks, picking up garbage, maintaining sewers, paving/maintaining roads, building dams, laying railroad tracks, policing cities, creating production machinery to build cars and can food, crewing on cargo ships, stringing cable-car wires, test-piloting jets, fighting on front-lines, filling military cemeteries, tunneling through mountains, logging, butchering meat, harvesting chickens, making first-moves sexually, cleaning oil spills, detoxifying chemical spills, decontaminating nuclear accidents, covering roofs, operating cranes, installing plumbing, parachuting into forest fires, rescue swimming, being under-fire combat medic, stringing and repairing high-tension electrical wires, and working on farms.

Who can deny that the women of Islam are the most beautiful. They must keep covered the face and body, or will drive all the men crazy!
