"Slovenian President Borut Pahor invited president Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a visit to Slovenia," a spokesperson for Borut said in an email to CNN. "The Presidents did not set any dates or exact opportunity when the visit would take place."
Slovenian Ambassador to the United States, Dr. Božo Cerar, recently told CNN that Slovenians are "very proud" that Melania, 47, is first lady. Barron Trump’s mother, who is the second foreign-born first lady, is originally from Novo Mesto, Slovenia. While delivering a speech at the Republican Convention in 2016, Melania opened up about her upbringing saying, “I was born in Slovenia, a small, beautiful and then-communist country in Central Europe.”

“I am fortunate for my heritage, but also for where it brought me today. I traveled the world while working hard in the incredible arena of fashion,” she added. “After living and working in Milan and Paris, I arrived in New York City 20 years ago, and I saw both the joys and hardships of daily life. On July 28th, 2006 I was very proud to become citizen of the United States, the greatest privilege on planet earth!”
