Melania Trump Covered her Hair in the Vatican – Unlike in Saudi Arabia

On Wednesday morning President Donald Trump and his common-law wife Melania arrived at the Vatican for a meeting with Pope Francis. The first lady was wearing a black mantilla, a lace head scarf.

Last Saturday Melania and Ivanka Trump refused to cover their hair while visiting Saudi Arabia. Women are legally required to cover their heads in the Muslim kingdom.
