Melania trump caused a scandal in Africa

Melania trump caused a scandal in Africa”

The president, for his part, said he was pleased with what he saw.

Maybe you're wondering what the first lady is doing in Africa.

@FLOTUS wore "I don't care" while visiting migrant children & wore the colonial hat while visiting #shithole continent.

"I have my own voice and my opinions, and it's very important for me that I express what I feel", she added.

No one can say, first lady, Melania Trump doesn't understand the power of an image.

For the past several years the US Agency for International Development has worked with the Egyptian government on a project to prevent additional damage to the landmarks.

Trump seemed to snap when asked by reporters about the chosen headgear. "We have to look for her nonverbal cues sometimes". "So we are helping the countries, and we are working hard for helping them, and we will continue to help". Now the wife of the head of the White house was staying in Kenya, where he had been on Safari.

The First Lady's visit to Africa has offered up a softer side of the Trump administration, which is facing a critical vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday. "I'm against any kind of abuse".

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

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.

Asked about her wardrobe choices, the first lady lamented the fact that her clothes drew more attention than her work on children's issues.

In rare comments to the press, Trump said her trip - which also took in Ghana, Malawi and Kenya - was created to "show the world that we care".

The headwear has direct ties to European imperialism and colonialism, often worn by the British soldiers who colonized Africa and India in the 19th century.

Others urged that Trump be given some leeway as she stakes out an unconventional approach to her role.

The jacket also caused debates that provoked the American president to explain that she was sending the message to "Fake News Media" and not the detained kids. "And he praises her for it".

Mrs. Trump arrived at The Nest orphanage on Friday after helping feed baby elephants, still clad in the riding trousers and tall brown boots she had worn on a safari. Or at least his Twitter account.

The stylish former model also said she did not always agree with her husband's tweets and shared her opinions with him directly, even though he did not always follow her advice.
