On Wednesday (September 20, 2017), Melania Trump has attended the UN General Assembly luncheon to give a speech about protecting the rights of the children.
However, Honeylet was not the official First Lady of the Philippines, but she was performing most of the functions reserved for her title for accompanying the president on its foreign trips and welcoming foreign dignitaries and their spouses.
Duterte’s common-law wife has been invited to attend side meetings as part of her advocacy work although she was not a part of the Philippine delegation to the UN General Assembly.
