This FLOTUS seems to have a true heart for suffering children. It seems like every time she travels, I see a story about how she visited the pediatric ward of a local hospital.
This holiday season, she visited with patients and staff at Children’s National hospital in the nation’s capital. Then-FLOTUS Bess Truman began the now-traditional practice more than 60 years ago.
Mrs. Trump answered questions from the kids and read The Polar Express to them.
- Her favorite Christmas song is “O Holy Night.”
- Her favorite family Christmas tradition is eating dinner on Christmas Eve before they attend midnight Mass or worship services on Christmas Day, followed by another family dinner. “On the 25th, Santa comes. We open the presents and spend time together.”
- Her favorite thing to eat for Christmas dinner is “healthy food. You feel very good after. Not too much eating,” she said. “The most important part is to spend time with the family.”
- Her dream Christmas destination would be to “spend my holidays on a deserted island, tropical island with my family,” she said.
It was not Mrs. Trump’s first visit to Children National. She visited earlier in the year to help prepare a “healing garden” for patients that she helped dedicate on a follow-up visit.
