US First Lady Melania Trump wraps up solo African tour in Egypt

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Terminal Two to be closed during US First Lady's arrival

Asked about her husband's previous derogatory comments about African nations, Mrs. Trump said she didn't hear the president make the remarks and that none of her hosts during the trip brought up the topic. Many were puzzled, including CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett, who has covered Trump extensively. The first lady has had to grapple with that issue herself, given the multiple women who have accused her husband of sexually inappropriate behaviour, claims he says are false.

"None of [her] positions taken so far even paid lip-service to the degenerating status of freedoms in Egypt, including women or the so-called liberal values that the U.S. is supposed to stand for - these are never mentioned in conversation with Sisi", said El Mahdi.

Her visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, came on the fourth day of a week-long visit to Africa.

Pith helmets were originally worn by European explorers to cope with warmer climates, and soon became a key part of commanding officers' uniforms, as they led local troops. "It's a reflection of her outdated understanding of Africa". "It's not a place looking for white saviors in colonial getup".

At Nairobi National Park on Friday, Trump fed baby elephants and took a safari ride.

US First Lady Melania Trump Lands in Kenya This Week
Mrs Trump's week-long trip to the continent was seen as helping to heal some of the divisions. Trump is on a five-day tour with planned stops in Malawi , Kenya and Egypt .

She closed her tour in Egypt by touring the pyramids and the Great Sphinx to highlight US -backed preservation efforts there.

The Trump administration recently made a decision to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport.

Mrs Trump and Mrs Kenyatta's talks centred on the welfare of mothers and children and conversation, in line with their Be Best and Beyond Zero campaigns, respectively.

The first Lady snaps a selfie while being guided around the park. "Why didn't she go to a tech hub?" According to the Associated Press, she said the visit was "a solemn reminder of a time in our history that should never be forgotten".

First lady Melania Trump played with orphaned elephants in Kenya on Friday, providing a contrast with her stepson, Donald Trump Jr., who was photographed holding a severed elephant tail in one hand and a knife in the other during a big game hunting trip in Africa.
