"It has been an honour to take on the responsibility of the position of First Lady, with its long history as an important representative of the President, our family, and the traditions of our nation around the world", she said in a statement released by the White House.
"Melania says she's most happy at Mar-a-Lago", a source confided. "It was Donald's", the stylist and friend of the pair, Phillip Bloch, told American gossip magazine Us Weekly.
Melania, who according to our spy "won't be moving to the White House before June", has been busily sprucing up her Trump Tower fortress on Fifth Ave. Her retreat from the public eye has made her the butt of the jokes from late-night hosts. "It was Donald's. Truthfully, it's a lot to cope with". President Donald Trump is on his his first visit to Palm Beach since his inauguration. "I am excited to be organizing and bringing together such a dynamic and forward thinking group of individuals who will work together to make our country better for everyone".
But beyond her desire to support her child, Melania's early speeches and social media posts suggest children's welfare in general will be at the top of her agenda. Trump has also been fighting a libel suit against the Daily Mail, which she sued for implying she previously worked as a high-end escort.
However, the notoriously private First Lady has recently created her own hashtag that she adds to each of her tweets: #PowerToTheFirstLady.
"Don't let [Melania's] smile in those photos fool you", the family source said of the pictures of Melania's outing with Akie.
"Melania has the Secret Service take Barron to school and retrieve him", the source explained.
After school, they both stay in, with Barron doing his homework and watching cartoons, United States said. However, Melania did accompany Akie to a Japanese garden in Delray Beach, Florida, - far from the scrutiny of her husband's turbulent presidency in Washington DC.
On entering the White House one poll found she had the lowest favourability ratings of any modern First Lady.
