Melania began her first solo African tour in Ghana and arrived in Malawi shortly after 2pm.

On Friday, she visited the Nairobi National Park in Nairobi, Kenya, where she was spotted wearing a white blouse, brown riding trousers, boots and the white pith helmet - which is associated with colonial rule across Africa, The Guardian reported.

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion for days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination.

Melania Trump, the First Lady of the United States, is on tour in Africa and is inexplicably cosplaying like a French Nazi archaeologist.

As for whether she's ever told him to put his phone down, she said, "yes", with a laugh.

'I don't always agree what he tweets, ' she said in a rare, unscripted interaction with reporters. "Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't". "I give him my honest opinion and honest advice".

The US first lady is expected to launch her initiative in Egypt in partnership with the USAID, according to Ahram Arabic news website.

Melania also reportedly complained that she wishes people would focus on what she does rather than what she wears.


She met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, Entissar Mohameed Amer, before heading to the nearby city of Giza to see the pyramids and Sphinx to highlight USA -backed preservation efforts.

The First Lady held a one-hour meeting with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife at the palace, the longest of her tour, and was then driven to the U.S. embassy before heading to the Pyramids of Giza.

Over in Kenya, she visited an elephant orphanage where she fed baby elephants and was given a gift of one them.

During her whistlestop five-hour stay in Cairo, she was also scheduled to visit the new National Museum under construction next door to the Pyramids. Kate Bennett, of CNN, tweeted: "I have never seen her smile..."

At the meeting which lasted for almost an hour, Sisi sat in the middle, with Trump on one side and his wife on the other. In June, the first lady was photographed wearing a jacket emblazoned with the words "I really don't care, do u?" on its back. No statements were made to the press.

There she led a line of children singing to traditional music. An agreement with Republicans on the committee led to President Donald Trump calling on the FBI to complete a supplemental background investigation into the allegation.

Mrs. Trump arrived at The Nest orphanage on Friday after helping feed baby elephants, still clad in the riding trousers and tall brown boots she had worn on a safari.
