Melania Trump is heading out on her first solo foreign trip as first lady. She'll lead the US delegation to the Invictus Games, an international sporting events competition in which wounded service members participate, the Hill reports. Ninety US athletes are heading to Toronto for the third annual games, which start Sept. 23 and last for one week. In a statement, Trump says she is "heartened by the great success" of the games in the two years since Prince Harry founded them. She will meet the British royal during the event, USA Today reports.
