First lady visits Egypt on last stop in visit to Africa

Melania Trump was steadied by her security guard after an elephant nearly knocked her over

The First Lady held a one-hour meeting with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife at the palace, the longest of her tour, and was then driven to the U.S. embassy before heading to the Pyramids of Giza.

Of course, this isn't the first time Melania has stepped out in a controversial look.

The US First Lady is now on a week-long tour of the continent for her first solo trip, visiting countries like Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt to promote conservation and child wellbeing.

The first lady is, of course, no stranger to public commentary on her choice of dress.

Indeed, shortly before departing for her flight home, Trump again declared her independence from her husband.

Music accompanied by the beat of drums greeted her arrival at an orphanage in Nairobi, where a group of children dressed in bright yellow T-shirts and patterned bottoms escorted her up a driveway to the building.

"She works so hard and does it all out of love, " Trump added.

One Twitter user questioned simply: "What does she do?".

Asked about the judge, Mrs Trump said he was "highly qualified" to join the court.

I don't have time but we will talk about my future soon. "So, we just need to find a good solution", he summed up. It is a hard decision. "It's the way I've always played", the Italy global added.

Trump expressed some transparency with reporters in Egypt about her husband President Donald Trump's own Twitter comments. Moreover, the Trump administration loosened restrictions on the import of African elephant trophies past year, sparking criticism from conservationists. The administration said removing a ban on elephants imported from Zimbabwe and Zambia and encouraging wealthy big-game hunters to kill the threatened mammals would help raise money for conservation programs.

This isn't the first time Trump's style has caused controversy. Trump has twice tried unsuccessfully to slash USAID's budget by a third.

"Okay so yesterday it was a colonial pith helmet".

She also visited the great pyramids of Giza as well as the Sphinx as part of her visit to the nation. Ivory can only be extracted from elephants after they have been killed.

As always, Trump was unable to avoid criticism on her trip.

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

"I am honoured to meet the honourable lady, the wife of the American president, in Cairo tomorrow, and to wish her a successful and happy stay in her second country, Egypt", she wrote in Arabic.
