Melania Trump said she will auction off “three one-of-a-kind signed items” stemming from French President Emmanuel Macron’s first formal state visit in April 2018 when she was first lady.
“The important collection features three one-of-a-kind signed items, including the iconic white hat worn during the French Republic’s State Visit,” the Instagram post also said. “A portion of the proceeds will support children from the foster care community. #MelaniaNFT #FosteringTheFuture #BeBest #HeadOfState.”
