Melania Trump spotlights USAID reading programme in Malawi

The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi

The wildlife conservation is located in the capital city of Nairobi, and is considered to have the best elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.

Dressed in riding pants, boots and a white safari hat, she took photos and peered through binoculars for a closer look at zebras, giraffes, impalas, rhinos and hippos.

Many drew comparisons with Meryl Streep's character in Out Of Africa, while some said she was completing the look of "colonialiser".

Regardless of the controversy surrounding the Trump administration and Melania Trump's extended family, her communications director Stephanie Grisham told the New York Times that this happier Melania Trump is simply the first lady she knows.

US first lady Melania Trump feeds a baby elephant milk with a bottle, at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.

Egypt will be her final stop on the four-nation tour to highlight child welfare, education and tourism and conservation.

Planning for the trip began in earnest previous year. Trump's adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are trophy hunters.

The first lady spent time with a herd of elephants in the park and fed formula to two that are being raised at the park.




Her visit has included promoting the work of the US Agency for International Development, whose funding President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

The Trump administration recently chose to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport. "Her attire is a signal of her understanding of what Africa is in 2018".

The president praised his wife while she is overseas, saying, "The people love her, and she loves them! It is a lovely thing to see", Trump tweeted.

The First Lady's offensive headwear choice comes just months after her explosive, "I really don't care do u?" jacket.

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion in recent days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination which saw more than 300 arrests, including celebrities.

Mrs Trump has also said she is looking forward to meeting her Kenyan counterpart.

But if the comments appear to have bothered the First Lady she didn't it show it as she toured outdoor classrooms at Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe, which receives assistance from the US Agency for International Development.
