Isreali Prime Minster, Bibi Netanyahu, and his wife, Sara made their first trip to the White House since Donald Trump became the president. The powerful men held an informal press conference in which the takeaway was they both have a great deal of respect for each other, according to Sarah Palin.
Sara and Melania also met for the first time today. They spent the afternoon together sightseeing in D.C., while their husbands had “closed- door meetings.” Their first stop was the Smithsonian National History Museum of African-American History and Culture. The wives were guided through the museum by director Lonnie Bunch and Smithsonian Secretary David Skorton.

First Lady Melania Trump reportedly said after her visit, “As we remember, with deep humility and reverence, the historic plight of slavery which the Jewish and African-American people have known all too well, we rededicate ourselves to those powerful words that both our nations hold dear: “NEVER AGAIN!”
During the press conference, Trump praised the way Sara Netanyahu treated his wife during their visit to the White House.
President Trump stated,”I also want to thank Sara, can you please stand up? You’re so lovely, and you’ve been so nice to Melania, I appreciate it very much.”
After the way the media has treated Melania lately, Trump said it was “refreshing” to see someone give his wife the “respect she deserves.”

After their afternoon at the museum, Melania and Sara will attend a private dinner that the Trump’s are hosting for the Netanyahus’ at the White House.
According to ABC News, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and his wife, Jeanette will co-host the dinner alongside the Trumps.
The partnership between the Trumps and Netanyahus looks like it’s off to a fabulous start. Donald and Bibi seem to have a mutual respect for each other, and the wives appeared to enjoy each other’s company.
