President Donald Trump on Saturday praised first lady Melania Trump on her first solo trip abroad, calling her "a truly great representative for our country."

Here is Trump's post:

Melania Trump on Saturday led a U.S. delegation to Toronto for the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded service members.

She met with Britain's Prince Harry, who founded the competition, and with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump also spoke at a reception for the nearly 100 American athletes participating in the weeklong Olympic-style event — and she attended the opening ceremony.

Other members of the U.S. delegation include Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, professional golfer Nancy Lopez and entertainer Wayne Newton.

Prince Harry established the Invictus Games in 2014 for sick and wounded service members worldwide.

More than 550 individuals from 17 countries are expected to participate in 12 sports during the coming week, from cycling to wheelchair tennis to sitting volleyball.
