During Trump’s last visit to Mar-a-Lago, Melania Trump quietly visited a HomeSafe residence for girls victimized by abuse and domestic violence in Lake Worth.

“This is a day that the girls will never forget,” said HomeSafe’s chief executive officer.

Melania Trump also visited the Morikami Japanese Museum and Gardens west of Delray Beach with Akie Abe, the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in February.
