Melania makes time to tour on Far East visit
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
