Me­la­nia makes time to tour on Far East visit

Pretoria News Weekend - - WORLD -

DANANG: US first lady Me­la­nia Trump vis­ited China’s famed Great Wall at Mu­tianyu, about two hours north of Bei­jing city cen­tre yes­ter­day.

She rode a ca­ble car to a watch­tower, signed a guest­book and strolled along a stretch of the wall for about half an hour with a small group of aides and se­cu­rity of­fi­cers.

Me­la­nia re­ceived a scroll as a gift and chat­ted to her Chi­nese hosts be­fore she de­parted.

The first lady stayed in China as Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump flew to Danang, Viet­nam, to take part in an eco­nomic and se­cu­rity con­fer­ence.

She planned to re­turn to Wash­ing­ton af­ter tour­ing the Great Wall. The pres­i­dent tweeted that his wife would first stop in Alaska “to greet our AMAZING troops”.

Ear­lier yes­ter­day, she went to the Bei­jing zoo to check out the pan­das. – AP
