  • The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi

But the current First Lady's tour sits at uncomfortable odds with her husband's policies, through which funding for foreign charities have faced major cuts since he came to power. Trump opened her first extended solo global trip on Tuesday in Ghana. She passed out "Be Best-themed" items, including blankets and teddy bears to some of the new mothers at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital. The internet thinks so.

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. It is her first major solo worldwide trip ever since her husband, Donald Trump became president.

"Thank you to Professor Mutharika and the many other key leaders in Malawi who made me feel very welcome today".

Egypt will be her final stop on her tour of the continent focused on child welfare, education, tourism and conservation. It's an extension of her "Be Best" campaign promoting children's social and emotional well-being.

The First Lady's visit to Kenya follows a discussion she held with Mrs Kenyatta at White House when the Kenyan First Lady accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta on a visit to Washington DC in August this year.

That's put a pair of female Republican senators, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, under excruciating pressure. Jeff Flake of Arizona - a key vote on the nomination - called for it with the backing of Republican Sens.

The first lady's visit to Africa is not something new since the other first ladies have also done the same including Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama. "I was heartened to spend time with the students and was honoured to donate school supplies and soccer balls".

The U.S. first lady was joyously welcomed at the airport, with singing and dancing by a troupe of women and scores of schoolchildren waving African and Malawian flags.

"I don't think it squares at all", said Reuben E. Brigety, a former USA ambassador to the African Union and now dean of George Washington University's school of worldwide affairs.

He said Melania Trump's trip will only make a real difference if she is able to persuade President Trump, upon her return, of the value of US investments in Africa. She will learn something about our culture and learn at first hand what Ghana is like.
