U.S. First Lady Melania Trump visited Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Organization, a hospital that was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for its diversity of staff and care of people without regard to race, religion, or nationality.
Mrs. Trump was in Jerusalem on May 22 with President Donald J. Trump, who is visiting Israel as part of an eight-day international trip. The First Lady was a guest of Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The women met with a group of young Jewish and Arab patients, some in hospital pajamas, who sat around a table and presented their guests with pictures they had drawn.
The hospital also dedicated a bench with both women’s names in honor of their visit.
