The GOP Proudly Declares That Donald Trump ‘Appointed’ Melania As His First Lady

The GOP’s official Instagram account included first lady Melania Trump and second lady Karen Pence in a post Friday morning that celebrated women that Donald Trump had appointed to political positions.

While the first and second ladies are not political appointees, the Republican Party said in an Instagram post marking Women’s History Month that Trump is “empowering ALL Americans with his winning agenda,” showing photos of the leading female figures.

“Contrary to mainstream belief, @realdonaldtrump has appointed more women to senior-level government and campaign positions than previous administrations,” the post reads, adding, “Take a look at some of these leading ladies.”

The GOP included photos of several female Trump political appointees, including White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

A photo of Ivanka Trump, who is serving as an adviser in the White House, was also included.

Donaldo Trump also released a statement Thursday marking International Women’s Day touting the work he’s done for women since taking office. The White House also announced that the first lady would be presenting an award to women who have advocated for women’s rights around the world.
