Mrs. Trump strode into the State Dining Room for her first solo White House event after an announcer intoned, "Ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the United States, Melania Trump," and was greeted by the all-female group of about 50 people, including ambassadors, Cabinet members, at least one U.S. senator and stepdaughter Ivanka Trump.Trump said recently that his wife, who turns 47 next month, feels strongly about "women's difficulties".The White House allowed a small pool of journalists to watch as guests and the first lady arrived for Wednesday's lunch, but they were ushered out as Mrs. Trump began to speak.In recent weeks, Mrs. Trump helped plan their first big White House social event, an annual, black-tie dinner for the nation's governors. Mrs. Trump has also been slow to staff the East Wing of the White House, where the first lady's office is based.Mrs. Trump also hadn't been seen in public for several weeks after the inauguration, whereas the president appears on camera most days of the week.Harris said the public is giving Mrs. Trump "a little bit of a honeymoon period" but predicted the mood will change if she doesn't move to the White House.
