First lady Melania Trump will be hosting her first event in the White House Kitchen Garden that was established by former first lady Michelle Obama in 2009.
On Friday, a local children’s group will join Trump in the garden, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.

Trump and the children will plant and harvest vegetables with the help of the National Park Service.
Obama created the garden on the South Lawn grounds as part of her platform to help promote healthy eating among children.
Produce from the garden was often served at White House events, including state dinners. Some of the fruits, vegetables, and herbs were donated to local food banks.
“I take great pride in knowing that this little garden will live on as a symbol of the hopes that we all hold of growing a healthier nation for our children … I am hopeful that future First Families will cherish this garden like we have,” Obama said.
Twitter quickly pointed out that Melania will never fill Michelle Obama’s shoes:
"Melania Trump to tend the White House garden Friday"…Yeah right. I can just see her doing this. Just like Michelle use to do. pic.twitter.com/oDvZKOU0lO

In place of Michelle Obama's vegetable garden, Melania is planting a fashion shoe garden for disadvantaged feet.

Does she know what a kitchen garden is for? Or even a kitchen for that matter?
