Melania Trump made a rare midweek trip to Washington on Wednesday to celebrate her 47th birthday.
The First Lady, who maintains her home at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan, spent the day with the vice president’s wife, Karen Pence, at a luncheon for Senate spouses at the National Gallery of Art.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our @FLOTUS, Melania!” President Trump tweeted earlier in the day.
The first couple was expected to hold a private celebration Wednesday evening at the White House residence, according to spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

The bash comes on the heels of a Vanity Fair profile that claims Melania Trump has no interest in embracing the role of First Lady and her “unhappiness and the couple’s apparent lack of closeness are becoming more noticeable.”
