"Mrs. Trump will be moving to D.C. and settling into the White House at the end of the school year," Wolkoff said, "splitting her time between New York and D.C. in the meantime."

CNN reports that in clearing up confusion about the matter Wolkoff also noted, "Mrs. Trump is honored to serve this country and is taking the role and responsibilities of first lady very seriously. It has only been a short time since the inauguration and the first lady is going to go about her role in a pragmatic and thoughtful way that is unique and authentic to her."
