A group of children is also listed to entertain her on Friday. The people love her, and she loves them!

During her visit, the first lady spent time with children at the Chipala Primary School in Malawi's capital, Lilongwe, which receives assistance from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

"I also wanted to be sure to personally thank each of you for the work that you do here at the embassy in Malawi", she added.

"I think she's kind and nice".

But a few signs of protest were afoot, too, as President Trump is not widely seen as a friend of Africa.

During Trump's tour, she is focusing on child welfare.

Melani then made a stop over in Malawi on Thursday, October 4, where she visited a number of primary schools benefiting from U.S. assistance and handed over another 1.4 million books through an American funded national reading program.


However, Phiri said the protesters could have done better, observing that the timing of their actions did not tally with the work the USA first lady came to do in the country.

She visited the school to highlight the benefits of a USAID scheme to support African education, which has seen the United States distribute 9.6million books to schools across Malawi.

She will also visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt to complete her week-long visit to Africa.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", Trump said. "I was heartened to spend time with the students, and was honored to donate school supplies and soccer balls", she said.

Melania Trump met with Malawian First Lady Gertrude Maseko at the state house for tea before watching three traditional dance performances.

On her second day in Ghana, the first lady toured Cape Coast Castle, a former slave fort.
