“Mrs. Trump will be moving to D.C. and settling into the White House at the end of the school year, splitting her time between New York and D.C. in the meantime,” Wolkoff said. “Mrs. Trump is honored to serve this country and is taking the role and responsibilities of the First Lady very seriously.”
