  • First lady Melania Trump looks out over Nairobi National Park in Nairobi Kenya

Melania Trump is partway through her first extended solo global trip as first lady, and as part of an effort to highlight conservation efforts in Kenya, she made a decision to feed some baby elephants in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

She then made a brief stop in Malawi where she toured a primary school.

Standing in front of the Sphinx, Mrs Trump said makes her opinions clear with her husband.

Back at the orphanage, Mrs. Trump left the same way she arrived.

Even in the lead-up to the 2016 election and afterwards, Ms Trump was largely hidden in the background, while Mr Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka was dubbed the "unofficial First Lady".

When reporters asked her about the choice of headgear, she replied, "You know what?"

Melania Trump waves as she boards her military airplane prior to departing from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, October 6, 2018.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp: Nations League a 'senseless' competition
In many ways it was an uncharacteristic City performance but a controlled one which satisfied Guardiola. Jurgen Klopp's side now sit level on points with Man City at the top of the Premier League table.

The president's wife caused a stir after appearing at Nairobi National Park in Kenya, wearing the headgear accompanied white shirt and light brown jodhpurs, an outfit commentators described as reminiscent of white colonial settlers in Africa.

The 17th century Cape Coast castle, now a monument, has attracted world dignitaries including America's first black President Barack Obama and his family, who also shared their emotions at the site. As she says, the campaign is "shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children tools and skills". I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear'.

First lady Melania Trump is tired of pundits who bury news of her initiatives with talk about clothes.

However, the Trump administration has proposed a raft of austerity measures to curtail U.S. funding of various programmes aimed at helping poor countries across the world.

But this tour, without statements to the press, takes place far from the bustle that reigns in Washington a few weeks before the mid-term elections in November, crucial for the second part of the mandate of the president Donald Trump.

When pressed on whether she believed Christine Blasey Ford, Melania remained evasive, but added, "I think all the victims-we need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had, but I am against any kind of abuse or violence". It was at Greater Accra Regional Hospital that she plucked a chubby baby boy from the arms of the woman holding him. After the readings, she was encircled by the singing children and danced some more. But the president twice has proposed slashing the agency's money. "And that was anonymous source and I would leave it at that".
