|WATCH: First Lady’s visit ‘made their day’|
| First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Wyoming last week as part of her signature Be Best initiative, which focuses on childhood well-being and the crucial fights against cyberbullying and drug abuse. While there, she encouraged children to spend more time outdoors and learn more about America’s beautiful National Parks.|
Arriving in the town of Jackson, Mrs. Trump joined some of the Jackson District Boy Scouts under the town’s iconic elk antler arches, where they told her about their ongoing conservation efforts. The Scouts have a longstanding relationship with the National Elk Refuge dating back to the 1950s: They go out and collect antlers on the refuge, sell them at auction, and donate a majority of the proceeds to the refuge in support of elk management and habitat enhancement. The remaining funds stay with the local Scout troop.
Later that day, aboard a river raft, the First Lady explored Wyoming’s scenic Snake River with a group of fourth graders from the Teton County School District.
Friday morning, dozens of second and fourth graders waited for the First Lady’s arrival inside the Grand Teton National Park’s Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center. The young students were at various stations set up around the room, each with an activity designed to help children learn more about the outdoors. While there, Mrs. Trump distributed “Every Kid Outdoors” passes to provide students with free access to amazing National Park Services lands and waters across the country.
“Spending time outdoors with children and learning more about our incredible and complex surroundings was a very meaningful experience for me,” the First Lady said.
“I want to thank the people of Wyoming for making me feel so welcomed.”

While Congress wastes time, the Trump Economy makes history
When President Trump was elected, the left’s most famous economist-turned-newspaper-columnist predicted “a global recession, with no end in sight.”
Instead, the Trump Economy has delivered month after month of job creation and wage growth, even as the Beltway Pundit Circus foams at the mouth for either a recession or an impeachment coup to bail out their busted prophesies.
Friday’s historic jobs report won’t help matters for them, but it will help millions of American workers who are being pulled off the sidelines—and up the income ladder:The big headline: America’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.5 percent, its lowest level in 50 years
African-American unemployment is now at the lowest level ever recorded
Hispanic-American unemployment is also at a historic low
For those without a high school diploma, the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in nearly 3 decades
🎬 Watch the reactions to Friday’s incredible jobs numbers.
Stephen Moore: Democrats are wrong. Middle-class incomes are surging.
