The White House released First Lady Melania Trump's official portrait Monday. Not much information was given about the photo beyond the fact that it was "taken in her new residence at the White House." "I am honored to serve in the role of First Lady, and look forward to working on behalf of the American people over the coming years," said the first lady in a statement, per Fox News. Early reaction seemed mostly positive, though some wondered if the portrait was "overly airbrushed." There were, of course, some jokes made on Twitter, like this one: "Breaking News: First Lady Melania Trump's portrait will hang in Trump Tower and First Lady Ivanka Trump's portrait will hang in the WH." No word on when the photo was shot or who the photographer was, notes the Hill. (More Melania Trump stories.)
