First Lady Dedicates 'Healing' Garden at Children's Hospital

Donald Trump spent his life running a family firm and the White House is no exception: the first 100 days have given his adult children an unprecedented role even if the first lady lives in the shadows.

The garden was inspired by a terminally ill young patient who asked her caregivers to go outdoors one more time before she died in 2013. Trump, as well as former first ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush and Rosalynn Carter, serve as honorary chairs.

"It took so many kind and caring people focused on these very courageous and fantastic children, and the end result is something everyone should be proud of", she said.

"This garden will be a quiet space for children to benefit from nature's most important elements: fresh air and attractive views, to relax and enjoy in peace", she said. The two are expected to make a permanent move to the White House in early summer when Barron's school year concludes.

After a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Trump sat a table with young patients, helping them with a craft activity: painting flower pots.

Donald Trump downplayed this incident, saying that what happened "was not booing like we all know it".

"My birthday was this Wednesday", Trump told the girl. "She gave an answer, and she's cool".

Under new rules brought in by the Trump administration last month, immigration officials are required to prioritise the removal of any foreign national who has "engaged in fraud or wilful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter or application before a government agency".

Although she's still a newcomer at giving speeches, the first lady was a natural - warm, playful, inquisitive - at interacting with the patients.

She said, "It is therefore our duty to continue to shine the light on each miraculous victory achieved by women".
