Melania Trump, Karen Pence Visit Joint Base Charleston to Survey Emergency Response
JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. — Melania Trump and Karen Pence are traveling to South Carolina to learn about some of the military’s emergency preparedness and humanitarian efforts.
They will also be visiting an area elementary school to meet with 5th grade students who are participating in the Red Cross Pillowcase Project emergency response program, which helps children mentally and physically for natural disasters like hurricanes.
The first lady is also scheduled to deliver remarks to troops and their families. Her visit comes just days after President Donald Trump‘s trip to South Carolina , where he participated in a criminal justice forum last week.
