KENYA: Melania Trump Laments Elephant Poaching

Melania Trump, ending Africa tour, says glad Kavanaugh, accuser been heard KENYA: Melania Trump Laments Elephant Poaching

But it was her attire which drew concern on Twitter, as she donned a white pith hat, with her riding pants and boots. The U.S. first lady also went on a quick safari.

The US First Lady landed in Kenya on Thursday night and was received by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi County.

First lady Melania Trump has been criticized for wearing a white pith helmet while on a safari in Kenya on Friday.

"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.

After the Ghana visit, she made a brief stop in Malawi where she toured a primary school.

Melania Trump also touched on Brett Kavanaugh, the embattled Supreme Court nominee who is expected to be confirmed by the Senate Saturday afternoon after multiple women publicly accused him of sexual misconduct.

Kavanaugh a step closer to lifetime Supreme Court post after Senate vote
If the vote fails, it would deal a major blow to the nomination and throw the possibility of confirmation into serious doubt. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Thursday, Kavanaugh said he "might have been too emotional at times" in his testimony.


Quickly, people across the globe slammed her because the hat was similar to the one used by colonial masters in Kenya.

Melania Trump is in Egypt to wrap up a four-country tour of Africa by visiting the pyramids and the Great Sphinx. "I'm glad that Judge Kavanaugh was heard", Melania Trump said, dodging a question on whether she believed Ford's accusations.

Asked whether she's ever told her husband to put his phone down, she smiled and said yes.

Egypt is the final stop on Mrs. Trump's tour of Africa.

Her office has described the trip as a "showcase" for the work of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), even at a time when her husband's government is looking to slash US aid across the world.

Ms Trump's focus on wildlife stands in contrast to efforts by her husband to lift a ban on some elephant trophy imports, which created a public outcry a year ago. "It's a attractive thing to see", he tweeted.
