LOVE IT! Look Where Melania Took Queen Rania During Her U.S. Visit…

First Lady Melania Trump hosted Jordan’s Queen Rania Wednesday, and took her to visit a girls’ charter school in an impoverished area of Washington, per CNN.

Melania and the Jordanian Queen sat in on a series of classes at the school, which houses grades pre-K through 8th.

The model and the monarch visited Excel Academy located in southeast Washington, and were greeted by students bearing bouquets of flowers.

“That’s so beautiful, thank you,” the first lady said as she gave student Danielle Chatman a hug.

The down-to-earth Queen engaged with the listening session participants frequently, asking a parent on the panel where she was from, and inquiring about the school’s mission regarding building life skills.

“We believe that in educating a girl, we educate a family, we educate a community,” school CEO Deborah Lockhart said, discussing the school’s social services, extracurricular and special needs programs.

Charter schools are an important piece in the mission many conservatives have to maintain school choice for Americans, as they often offer opportunities for many communities that some publicly-funded schools cannot.
