The First Lady rode in a cable auto to a watchtower to visit the section of the Great Wall of China, which is two hours north of Beijing city centre.

First lady Melania Trump and China's first lady, Peng Liyuan, are escorted by a student after a cultural performance during a visit to the Banchang Primary School in Beijing on November 9.

"They were in the United States before and we have a great relationship with all three of them", she said.

In the video, the billionaire tycoon can be seen greeting Chinese president Xi Jinping and wife Madame Peng Liyuan. Later, she greeted a group of schoolchildren and handed over stuffed toy eagles to them.

"We did, we did".


The first lady, clad in designer duds and big sunglasses, said, "This is attractive".

"We love to live in Washington, we have a very busy life".

Exciting is an accurate description for Trump, who as a Slovenian immigrant and a former fashion model, likely never anticipated that one day she would be holding the iconic position.

Mrs. Trump toured China's famed Great Wall at Mutianyu, where she rode a cable vehicle to a watchtower, signed a guestbook and strolled along a stretch of the wall for about half an hour with a small group of aides and security officers.
