First Lady Melania Trump's Visit to Cairo, Egypt

First Lady Melania Trump's Visit to Cairo, Egypt

First Lady Melania Trump's questionable attire has become the focal point of her four-country African tour, along with her voicing support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Always under a microscope, the fashion-conscious first lady caught some criticism for the white pith helmet she wore with her safari ensemble in Kenya. "I give him my honest opinion and honest advice and sometimes he listens, and sometimes he doesn't". The style was frequently worn by European travelers and explorers visiting areas such as Africa, Southeast Asia, and the tropics in the late 19th Century, and by military personnel from countries such as Britain, France, Spain, and Italy while commanding colonial armies.

The first lady was wearing cream wide-legged slacks, a white shirt, with a black necktie, with a Ralph Lauren jacket over her shoulders.

Melania Trump helped feed baby elephants as she visited a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts.

Trump, in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.




Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion for days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination.

"It's likely that including Egypt on the agenda is meant to serve as an expression of Donald Trump's friendship with President Sisi", said Timothy Kaldas of the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy.

Melania wrapped up her eventful trip in Egypt, where she met president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife Entissar al-Sisi, before touring the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx.

However, she rejoined him when he visited Brussels for the 29th North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and for his first Presidential visit to the UK.

As reviews of her trip to the African continent continue to be written, Trump shared his own where he said the "people of Africa loved and respected her everywhere she went". She launched the campaign in May to focus on the overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behavior.

She participated in a ceremonial donation of one million textbooks in Malawi last week, even as her husband has suggested cuts to foreign aid.

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. "It is a handsome thing to see".
