Melania Trump celebrated the record number of women in Congress at an International Women"s Day celebration even though it was Democrats who propelled the House of Representatives to that record.


"We now have more women in Congress than any other time in our nation"s history," the first lady told the audience at the State Department during the 2019 Annual International Women of Courage (IWOC) Awards.


"Women"s unemployment in the United States has reached its lowest level in 65 years," she said, adding "this is something to celebrate."
