President Donald Trump continues facing scrutiny from his critics no matter what he does. Trump was busy doing his presidential duties when he decided out of the blue that he was going rogue and ditching everyone to make an important stop somewhere else. His tasks are usually on the calendar and his schedule is most likely planned out well in advance, but this time he went off the grid to make his secret stop and it was well worth it. In fact, it wasn’t the first time he made the secret unscheduled visit either.
President Trump ditched his job for a brief moment so that he could visit his wife Melania in the hospital as she recovered from the surgical procedure she had on her kidney. Trump had left the White House to visit the First Lady and it wasn’t on his official list of duties, but he didn’t care. He wanted to visit his wife to check on her and remind her that she’ll always be his only First Lady.
Trump’s critics might use this information to chastise him and say he was using taxpayer money or taxpayer time to visit his wife in the hospital. At the end of the day, it’s more important that he sets an example and shows everyone the kind of person he is as he does what’s right and visits his loved one who needs support as she recovers. Visiting his ailing wife in the hospital is nothing less than respectable and what every good husband should do. His critics may disagree, but he did the right thing by making a few unscheduled and surprise visits to help her during her recovery.
The Daily Caller reported more on the secret visit: “President Trump made an unscheduled visit to check on First Lady Melania Trump in the hospital Tuesday afternoon.
Trump’s visit was not on the official White House schedule, but he made time for his wife as she recovers from a minor surgery on her kidney. The White House pool reports that he left the White House just after 4:00 pm.
Melania was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a surgery “to treat a benign kidney condition” on Monday.”
President Trump’s actions towards his wife should remind Americans that family comes first, even if you’re the President of the country. Of course, he should visit her, even if he has to put off a few presidential tasks to get it done. Just because he’s President of the United States, that doesn’t mean Donald is a robot and doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be allocated the time to visit and take care of his family. If anything, he needs to take care of her first, and everyone else second.
His visit with Melania, who seems to be recovering well, reminds people of the old saying “happy wife, happy life” and taking time out of a busy POTUS schedule to visit her a few times must mean the world to her. It also sets an example for others that sometimes people need to put their job on the side and make sure their family is taken care of.
Sometimes we work too hard and forget that we have familial duties.
He might be the President of the United States, but he’s also a father and husband and he has the family duty just like millions of fellow Americans have.
Unfortunately, there will be critics who spin this into a story about a man who ditched his country or how he should be impeached for visiting his wife while he was probably supposed to be doing something else. Trump’s critics are always coming up with something negative instead of focusing on the positive aspects of his tenure in the White House.
Nevertheless, Trump persisted in the face of his opposition and showed people what it’s like to do the right thing.
