Melania Trump leaves her New York City home after a three-day getaway.
The first lady left Trump Tower in Manhattan for the weekend with her husband in Bedminster, NJ.*
As she left the city, she was escorted by eight Secret Service vehicles that got caught in midtown traffic before making its way to the Lincoln Tunnel.
In a TV interview before she left, the First Lady said she could not be happier after moving into the White House with her son Barron.
“We are enjoying it very much,” Melania said. And her 11-year-old son “loves it,” she added. “Yes, all settled. He loves it there.”
Barron will attend St Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, when school starts in September.
