First Lady Melania Trump joined the President in attending Ford’s Theatre tonight for their annual gala in tribute to former President Abraham Lincoln.  Mrs. Trump is an Honorary Chair of the Ford’s Theatre Gala and this is the third year that the Administration has hosted Ford’s Theatre for a pre-gala reception at the White House.

“We had a lovely evening at Ford’s Theatre,” said First Lady Melania Trump.  “Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the Lincoln Medal.  The President and I thank each of you for the powerful impact your work has on so many of us.  Thank you to Ford’s Theatre Society for welcoming us and for your continued dedication to the arts – they are a vital part of our society.”
