President Trump began observing Memorial Day with a tweet Monday morning: “HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!” He then participated at a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, and will also attend a ceremony at Fort McHenry in Baltimore.
Mr. Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Monday morning. Although the wreath laying is usually part of a ceremony that involves a presidential address, Mr. Trump did not deliver a speech at the cemetery, which is closed to the public because of the coronavirus pandemic.
For the solemn occasion, the first lady wore a white double-breasted coat with gold military style buttons. She teamed the coat with matching white stiletto pumps.
Old school style rules dictate that women should only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day — and the first chance she got Melania Trump donned white from head to toe.
She also showed off perfectly manicured nails and a dark smoky eye.
After the ceremony, she and Trump walked hand-in-hand to Marine One, with Trump then putting his hand on his wife’s back to guide her into the plane on the way to their next stop, Fort McHenry in Baltimore.

Despite large ceremonies being canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event went ahead. However, it took place on a smaller scale than would usually be the case, with participants who were not wearing masks, maintaining requisite social distancing protocol.
