Melania Trump flies solo to visit Great Wall of China

Mrs. Trump toured China's famed Great Wall at Mutianyu, where she rode a cable vehicle to a watchtower, signed a guestbook and strolled along a stretch of the wall for about half an hour with a small group of aides and security officers. After her walk on the wall, and having already checked out the Beijing Zoo to see the pandas, the United States first lady was due to head back to America, stopping first in Alaska to greet U.S. troops.

The First Lady finally got to see the "big, attractive wall" she was promised by her husband. "This is unbelievable", according to Vanity Fair magazine.

First lady Melania Trump poses for a photograph after she presented stuffed toy eagles, from the US, to children at the Beijing Zoo in Beijing on November 10, 2017.

With President Trump and the First Lady now overseas in Asia to discuss foreign relations, the 47-year-old former model stepped out in Beijing to meet with President Xi Jinpeng and his wife, Madame Peng Liyuana, in a custom Dolce & Gabbana gown with an estimated price tag of $3,975.

Trump also reiterated that he would put America first when it comes to global trade relations.

In reflecting on her time as first lady, Melania Trump told CNN: "Well, it's my honor to be a first lady of the United States, and it was a very busy year".

"We love to live in Washington, we have a very busy life". The piece was custom made for her (alterations included adding sleeves and a longer hemline), but a similar version retails for $2,475. Trump tweeted that his wife will first stop in Alaska "to greet our wonderful troops".

At the Panda House gift shop, Trump signed a picture of a giant panda, writing, "Thank you to the Beijing Zoo!"
