During a visit to Britain when the Queen was showing President Donald Trump various artifacts related to the U.S., First Lady Melania Trump stepped in when Trump didn’t recognize a pewter horse figure that had been a gift from him. the Daily Mail reported.
“I think we gave that to the Queen,” Melania Trump said when Trump was asked if he recognized the statue and said he didn’t. Royal Collection director Tim Knox confirmed that Trump had given the horse to the queen last year after they had lunch together.
Eight tables of artifacts from the collection were set up for viewing by the Trumps after they had lunch with the Queen. Included were many items from Trump’s Scottish history, including the MacCleod tartan from his mother’s Scottish ancestry.
An early copy of the Declaration of Independence and many letters from George Washington were also part of the display. A first edition of Churchill’s 1959 book The Second World War and other gifts were given to Trump and the First Lady by the Queen prior to the viewing.
Melania’s recognition of the gift shows that she’s a great First Lady and a true partner for Donald Trump, who can depend on her to help in these situations. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, White House senior advisor Jared Kushner also toured the Royal Collection with Britain’s Prince Andrew.
