Melania Trump’s visit to Africa in Pictures

Melania Trump’s visit to Africa in Pictures

"We just completed an fantastic trip - we went to Ghana, we went to Malawi, we went to Kenya, here we are in Egypt", the first lady told reporters Saturday.

Everything about her tour to Africa was ideal but her dressing while in Kenya is what has made her tour to Africa look bad.

But wildlife conservation has not been Melania Trump's only focus during her four-country tour.

Seay did praise Trump for one item on her itinerary: a trip she took to Cape Coast castle, a former slave trading fort in Ghana.

The first steps of the visit of Melania Trump in Africa, presented as a "diplomatic and humanitarian", have not mobilized the crowds or aroused of genuine fervour.

"This is a first lady who's very, very careful about what she wears and what messages she does send, from her clothes to her facial expressions to. how she looks and acts", Bennett told NPR's Mary Louise Kelly.

"Colonizer outfit! What was she bloody thinking, showing up in Africa in this outfit".

"I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear".

Trump flew to Cairo from Nairobi earlier on Saturday on the last stage of her visit to Africa, a continent her husband once referred to derisively.

While there, she also received a briefing about USAID's Water Table Reduction Project at the base of the Sphinx, according to the statement. "And we want to show the world that we care".

American citizens in Malawi this week staged a peaceful protest telling US First Lady Melania Trump to return home and persuade President Donald Trump to reverse the proposed health-care budget cuts to poor countries that include Malawi.

The Trump administration recently made a decision to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport.

First lady Melania Trump is tired of pundits who bury news of her initiatives with talk about clothes. Appearing reticent at first, she ultimately engaged them and ended up obviously enjoying the experience of feeding baby elephants milk through a super-sized baby bottle, patting one elephant's head and stroking another's ear.

Let's be honest, it's no "Let's Move" (Michelle Obama's initiative during her husband's time in office, tied to his national taskforce into childhood obesity). The visit also included promoting the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development, whose funding President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

"She thinks animals are precious and doesn't like big-game hunting", said Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's spokeswoman.

Now back in Washington, it is unconfirmed what is next on the First Lady's agenda.
