Trump defends Melania for wearing stilettos to hurricane area

According to Politico, Melania was the only speaker at the luncheon, where she was seated with other first ladies such as Brigitte Macron of France, Sophie Trudeau of Canada, and Emine Erdogan of Turkey.

The Invictus Games were launched in 2014 by Prince Harry as an global sporting event for servicemen and women injured in combat.

Mrs. Trump is leading a USA delegation to this year's event, which opens Saturday in Toronto.

She told them to "take that fighting spirit that I know you have and bring home the gold".

When the first lady initially announced her intent to campaign against bullying a year ago, she drew the same sort of criticism since the effort seemed so at odds with her husband's approach to politics. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst U.S. First Lady Melania Trump works in the White House kitchen garden with children from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, at the White House in Washington, U.S. September 22, 2017. About 100 American athletes are participating in the games.

The events comprise 12 sports designed for wounded service members, including wheelchair tennis, sitting volleyball, and cycling.

"I'm a big believer in healthy eating", she said before walking through the garden. She's leading the USA delegation to an global sporting event in Toronto for wounded service members, her first solo trip representing the US without President Donald Trump at her side.

Mrs. Trump is scheduled to meet with Britain's Prince Harry, who founded the Invictus Games in 2014. Mrs. Trump will also attend Saturday's opening ceremony.

This year, she has already accompanied the president on three overseas visits, but the Saturday event will be her first solo trip abroad. Saturday will be the first time she crosses the border alone.
