French President Macron at Mount Vernon

First Lady Melania Trump is vastly underestimated.  She is planning Macron’s visit to our country, which includes a tour of Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, today.

After rendering great service to the American Revolution, Lafayette came to the home of his spiritual father to say good bye in 1784.   He urged an immediate end to slavery.  Back in France, he participated in the early stages of the French Revolution.  He returned for a triumphal tour in 1824, and paid his respects at Washington’s grave.

His most treasured gift to America  is on display today  at Mount Vernon  —   the key to the Bastille.

Vive le France.
