On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump is scheduled to give his first speech to a joint session of Congress. The speech will be attended by both houses of Congress and their guests, as well as Supreme Court justices and Trump’s cabinet.
Some say that these family members have been invited to sit with Melania to counteract a plan by Democrats to bring illegal immigrants to the speech.
Other guests that have been invited to sit with Melania include Megan Crowley, whose father founded a pharmaceutical company that helped keep her alive by treating her chronic Pompe Disease; Denisha Merriweather, who used the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship to attend private high school, a type of school voucher program for which the Trump administration advocates; and Maureen McCarthy Scalia, the widow of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Her appearance at this speech will be only Melania’s second post-inauguration foray into the official presidential limelight. It comes days after she hosted the Governor’s Ball, an event which she planned herself and gave an opening statement at.
