The First Lady left Washington Tuesday to make stops in Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt in a week-long journey focusing on children.

Kim Yi Dionne, an African politics expert at UC Riverside, tweeted: Melania Trump wearing a pith helmet on her trip to Africa is more than a silly sartorial choice.

"I don't always agree what he thinks and I tell him that", Mrs Trump said. "But, I have my own voice and my opinions and it's very important for me that I express what I feel".

Seay insists that the valuable focus of a first lady could have been better applied in contexts that felt more representative of the triumphs and challenges of today's Africa. That's very important what we do, what we're doing with U.S. aid, what I do with my initiatives.

"Do you see the cameras?" she said to the boy before cradling another baby.

During their discussions at State House, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta gave the US First Lady a copy of Beyond Zero's strategic framework for 2018-2022 which she launched earlier in the year.

And she sashayed and shimmied and danced.

The US Senate is expected to confirm conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice.

Kavanaugh has denied the charge and on Saturday was confirmed to a lifetime appointment on America's highest court.

Mrs. Trump opened the trip Tuesday in Ghana.

Emery stated: "Yesterday he came in with pain and he can not train yesterday or play today". Arsenal started the season poorly and lost their opening two league games.

The First Lady described her tour as "amazing" and said she hoped people would talk more about her visit and less about her fashion choices.

The struggle over Kavanaugh resurfaced the roiling debate over the treatment of women who allege sexual misconduct.

However, she declined to say if she believed the accusations.

Unsurprisingly, the choice was met with a fair amount of criticism. "I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear".

"Thank you for what you do and taking care of them", Trump told the orphanage's staff after learning more about the facility and the circumstances that brought numerous young children and babies to it.

President Trump, for his part, hailed his wife's recent visit as a great success. The people love her, and she loves them!

On Thursday, her husband tweeted: "Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa".

"As a public diplomacy tour, it seemed successful", he said.

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).

People on social media were quick to draw comparisons between Trump's look and colonizer garb. While there, she also received a briefing about USAID's Water Table Reduction Project at the base of the Sphinx.
