And the helmet colonial that she wore in Kenya has raised a wave of criticism. That particular day she took a safari ride, fed baby elephants and saw some zebra.

In Ghana, she visited a former slave trading post, which she described as an "incredible experience" that others should also have.

This week, in particular, Melania was mocked a lot for the outfits she wore during her trip to Africa.

"Melania Trump causes eyebrows in Africa with a new" white hat", ran a headline including the New York Times on Friday. She seemed to ponder the question.

For her part, Melania Trump expressed her keenness to promote cooperation between the two countries, especially in the social fields, as an extension of the fruitful partnership between Egypt and the United States. "I give him my honest opinion and honest advice and sometimes he listens, and sometimes he doesn't". However, the first lady did make a statement in regard to her time visiting Kenya. "What happened so many years ago is really a tragedy", she said.

Asked if she believed Dr Ford's testimony, the First Lady indicated she did not want to comment directly.

McGregor tapped out when Nurmagomedov locked in a tight neck crank in the fourth round of their highly-anticipated UFC 229 lightweight championship fight.

But, what caught the attention of many people especially the media was the white hat she was wearing. " at the back during a visit to immigrant children who had been separated from their families and detained following an order by the US President Donald Trump".

Melania Trump is partway through her first extended solo worldwide trip as first lady, and as part of an effort to highlight conservation efforts in Kenya, she chose to feed some baby elephants in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. "I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear".

Security was tight with police deployed along the route and on rooftops as her convoy drove from the airport to the presidential palace. And to Lilongwe in Malawi, where she visited a primary school on Thursday, Ms Trump has been welcomed by slogans anti-Trump.

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 previous year.

Let's be honest, it's no "Let's Move" (Michelle Obama's initiative during her husband's time in office, tied to his national taskforce into childhood obesity).
