"My considerations and petitions are with the general population whose lives and families were broken by the abhorrences of the Holocaust", said Trump in an announcement discharged after her visit.

Mrs. Trump on Thursday said she was visiting the museum in advance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday to honour millions of people who were victims of the Nazis.
First lady Melania Trump's office is fed up with speculation about marital strife in the White House.

In a tweet Friday afternoon that did not mention a specific report, Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham accused news outlets of "salacious & false reporting", and referred to some outlets as "fake news".
Ms Grisham backtracked on January 22, saying Mrs Trump had pulled out of the trip: "It was determined there were too many scheduling and logistical issues". It's a reference to the museum's new initiative, "Never Stop Asking Why", aimed at inspiring people to join an online conversation "about the important questions that Holocaust history raises and what they mean for people and societies today", the museum said.
The White House faced one of its first controversies a year ago when a statement marking the day omitted any mention of Jews.
