US First Lady in Cairo wrapping up Africa trip

US First Lady in Cairo wrapping up Africa trip”

US First Lady Melania Trump is on Thursday evening expected to land in Nairobi for a two-day visit to the country. Remember that time when she wore an olive-green army jacket with the words, "I don't really care".

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.

Kenya was the third stop on Mrs Trump's week-long tour of Africa, which her husband is said to have described as a continent of "shithole countries".

The first lady is due to leave Egypt later on Saturday. "Also, she was photographed in safari attire multiple times on this trip". "Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't, but I have my own voice and my own opinions and it's very important that I express what I feel", she said, adding that it is her husband, not her, in elective office.

Melania arrived in Cairo on Saturday after a flight from Kenya. Melania stepped out of the plane wearing a cream linen blazer, cream wide-legged pants, a white shirt, a black tie and Chanel ballerina pumps. But for many observers it will be remembered for her choice of headgear. "I'm glad that Dr. Ford was heard; I'm glad that Judge Kavanaugh was heard". "We have to look for her non-verbal cues sometimes. this was a puzzler".

"Nobody discussed that with me, and I never heard him saying those comments, and that was anonymous source and I will leave that at that", she said.

Military guards stood to attention as Sisi and his wife greeted Trump at the front door.

Trump has focused on her signature issue of campaigning for children with stops at a hospital, primary school and an orphanage.

It was the second time in as many days that the first lady promoted policies out of step with her husband's.

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.
