Melania Trump has said she often disagrees with what her husband tweets and she tells him so - but he doesn't listen. She said the trip was "incredible" and wishes people would "focus on what I do, not on what I wear".

When asked by reporters about the pith helmet, Trump said she wants people to concentrate on her work, not her clothing choices.

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion in recent days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination which saw more than 300 arrests, including celebrities.

She said: 'You know what? "I'm against any kind of abuse".

She later visited an orphanage before meeting over tea with Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta and taking in a children's dance performance at the National Theatre in Nairobi.

While wrapping up her first global tour as First Lady, Melania answered questions from reporters while sitting outside the pyramids in Giza, Egypt.

Mrs Trump's visit to Kenya was the third stop on her Africa tour, which began on Tuesday in Ghana.

"I give my honest opinion and honest advice".

Stormy Daniels may get an embrace from Anna Wintour, but Melania Trump still has the Great Pyramid of Giza.

This is a line she's used before, of course, uttered by a White House spokesperson in response to a now infamous Zara anorak jacket bearing the slogan "I don't really care, do u?" she wore while visiting children held in immigration detention in the United States earlier this year.

However, social media users have been quick to mock the First Lady - questioning what it is she actually does beyond grabbing headlines with her outfit choices.

During her one-day excursion to meet Egyptian president Abdel-Fatah al Sisi she also found time to sightsee.

In Ghana, she visited an old fort and slave-holding.

In Malawi, Melania visited the Chipala Primary School where she donated textbooks, balls and supplies to the pupils and teachers.
