Melania Trump's menswear look in Africa inspires some praise - but mostly memes

Melania Trump was likened to a colonial administrator

When asked what message she wanted to send on behalf of the USA, the first lady said her trip was meant to "show the world that we care".

The first lady also did a few things she's never done before, like wave to journalists as she boarded a US government aircraft for the grueling five-day tour across multiple time zones.

Everywhere she has visited during her trip across Africa this week, first lady Melania Trump has cradled infants and held children.

"Well, I don't always agree [with] what he thinks, and I tell him that". We just completed an unbelievable trip.

"I'm glad that Dr. Ford was heard". 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.

She said her biggest achievement of the trip was "meeting people" and finding out about the "successful programmes that USAID is providing to the countries" that was "helping them on the journey to self reliance". "I am against any kind of abuse or violence".

According to a statement by the Egyptian presidency on Saturday, El-Sisi expressed to Mrs Trump Egypt's keenness on boosting the special strategic partnership between the two countries.

She added: "I tell him my opinions and maybe in some of them we don't agree".

When Tanushree Dutta levelled serious allegations of sexual misconduct against Nana Patekar , he maintained a stoic silence. Dutta's lawyer Nitin Satpute told ANI that she has been asked to record her statement before the police on 9 October.


In the past, her clothing choice has sparked widespread comment, notably when she wore a coat emblazoned with the slogan "I really don't care, do u?" while boarding an Air Force plane to visit migrant children at the Texas-Mexico border in June. President Trump has been quoted as saying immigrants from Africa came from "shit-hole countries", though he has denied making the remark.

Melania Trump, no stranger to sartorial controversy, is facing criticism for a hat she wore during her solo trip to Africa.

She's right though. In an ideal world, the focus would be on the First Lady's initiatives and what she said and did, rather than what she was wearing. He listened sometimes, and sometimes did not, she said.

She met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, Entissar Mohameed Amer, before heading to the nearby city of Giza to see the pyramids and Sphinx to highlight US-backed preservation efforts.

Egypt will be the next and final stop on her tour of the continent, focusing on child welfare, education, and tourism and conservation.

"Thank you for what you do and taking care of them", Trump told the orphanage's staff after learning more about the facility and the circumstances that brought numerous young children and babies to it.
