Melania Trump meets with Venezuela opposition leader's wife

Melania Trump‘s meeting with the wife of Venezuela’s opposition leader is being met with mixed reactions, including those who think that FLOTUS is only adding to the South American country’s problems.

Trump took to her social media on Thursday to share photos and a message of hope following her Mar-a-Lago meeting with Fabiana Rosales, where the two discussed the ongoing political and economic crisis in Venezuela and their plans to restore democracy for the sake of the country’s children. But with the turmoil taking place in America, specifically with children of immigrant families, some people think that Trump might not be the woman for the job.
