  • Melania Trump was steadied by her security guard after an elephant nearly knocked her over

Joshua Meservey, a senior Africa policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Institute, said there were modest expectations for the first lady's trip, and she largely met them, avoiding any major gaffes along the way.

Her next destination was Malawi before going to Kenya and finishing her tour in Egypt. Melania Trump's main agenda to Africa is about childhood nutrition and wildlife conservation.

Melania Trump briefly lost her footing when a baby elephant startled her with a sudden move, but the first lady was anything but out of step when children at an orphanage welcomed her to their home with African song and dance. "I give him my honest opinion and honest advice", she said adding that "sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn't".

The four-country trip was a coming out of sorts for the US first lady on the world stage.

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

They went on: 'As far as she's concerned, the hat she wore [in Kenya] was just a hat, so people need to get over it. Melania tries her hardest to tune out the negativity, but of course, it gets to her sometimes... "I'm against any kind of abuse".

The US Senate is expected to confirm conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice. His confirmation would give the USA president a clear win in his drive to cement conservative dominance of the high court.

First Lady Melania Trump landed in Cairo, Egypt on Saturday Morning.


It comes after the U.S. president allegedly called some African countries "shitholes" during a White House meeting on immigration in January.

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.

"Nobody discussed that with me, and I never heard him saying those comments". And she says she doesn't always agree with what he tweets. "I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear".

When reporters asked her about the choice of headgear, she replied, "You know what?"

Pairing tanned riding trousers with a simple white collared shirt, the first lady topped off her outfit with colonial-era headwear - a white pith helmet, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Trump's visit to Cairo included a planned visit with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer, and the visit to the pyramids to highlight USA -backed preservation efforts there.

Even before the pith helmet, Seay had started a hashtag - #FLOTUSInAfricaBingo - to note the ways in which she found that Trump was "fulfilling a lot of stereotypes" on her trip. No statements were made to the press. In Lilongwe, she visited a school that is funded by the United States Agency for International Development.

"I am honoured to meet the honourable lady, the wife of the American president, in Cairo tomorrow, and to wish her a successful and happy stay in her second country, Egypt", she wrote in Arabic.
