Melania Trump will be accompany President Trump in a visit to Saudi Arabia. Beautiful Melania Trump will not wear a head scarf. Not a surprise, really.
Let's chalk this up as another thing that the Trumps do differently than the Obamas. Also, another thing that we are happy they do differently than them. You don't need to cater to the needs of people in Saudi Arabia. Especially when you are the leader of the free world. You dress how you want. With style and class. You don't cover your head.
Melania Trump Will Not Wear a Head Scarf Like Michelle Obama Did
Per Russia Today:
America’s first lady has not been “ordered” to dress conservatively in Saudi Arabia, the country chosen by her husband as his first official overseas destination. Along with meetings on the US president’s itinerary, there will also reportedly be time for entertainment in the lavish Arab kingdom.
While the choice of the first country to be visited by Trump as America’s 45th president has been widely discussed in the media, a question has arisen whether there is a chance to see the US president’s wife covered in a traditionally strict Muslim attire.
Women in Saudi Arabia, including foreign visitors, are typically expected to wear a floor length dress – abaya, and a head scarf. However, when asked whether the US first lady would have to dress accordingly, a Saudi Arabia official said Riyadh “usually doesn’t demand” a specific dress-code, but rather “accepts suggestions.”
“We welcome any style in clothing,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir told the media on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
It's great to have a First Family who is not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Instead of being wearing a head scarf to Saudi Arabia, Melania shows off her beauty. Instead of bowing to the leaders of foreign countries, President Trump offers a handshake.
