US First Lady Melania Trump wraps up solo African tour in Egypt

US First Lady Melania Trump wraps up solo African tour in Egypt

Back in Washington, the US Senate is expected to give President Trump a big political win later on Saturday by confirming conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice.

When the topic of POTUS's itchy Twitter fingers came up, she said, "I don't always agree [with] what he tweets and I tell him that".

Trump drew some criticism for wearing a white pith helmet during a safari in Kenya because of its association with the exploitation of Africans.

Meanwhile, back at CNN, they were recollecting the good old days when former first lady Michelle Obama wore bright, colorful outfits on her trips to the continent - not pith hemets.

The hard, brimmed helmets originated in the 19th century and were adopted by military officers in Africa, becoming a symbol of oppression in colonial times.

Before arriving in Egypt, Mrs Trump travelled to Kenya, Malawi and Ghana, where she focused on promoting her signature issue of advocating for children, with stops at a hospital, primary school, and an orphanage, Reuters reported.

She and her local counterpart Margaret Kenyatta held talks on the welfare of mothers and children, and conservation, according to the Kenyan presidency.




One gushing user praised the "gorgeous" First Lady, calling her "mesmerising to watch". "I have my own voice and my opinions, and it's very important for me that I. express what I feel".

Melania Trump's outfit choice in Egypt got plenty of people talking.

"Melania Trump wearing pith helmet on her trip to "Africa" is more than a silly satirical choice".

The first lady refused to take the bait, telling reporters Saturday that she had no comment on her wardrobe.

US First Lady Melania Trump has found herself in the middle of yet another controversy related to her attire. Her clothes make me uncomfortable. She donned a beige suit, black tie and fedora-style hat and social media was quick to light up with Michael Jackson "Smooth Criminial" comparisons. "It is a attractive thing to see".

She was welcomed by Egyptian First Lady Intissar Amer al-Sisi, who wore an ankle-length blue dress and matching headscarf.
