  • Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Terminal Two to be closed during US First Lady's arrival

The first lady visited Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt, where she discussed child care on her first extended solo worldwide mission without the American president.

"If we're talking about the Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh, I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court", she said. So, should that be the case here, let us not be distracted: thanks to a white woman, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is nearly certainly going to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, President Donald Trump has mocked a survivor of sexual assault, and Ivanka Trump continues to be complicit in her father's administration.

Kavanaugh, who denies the allegation, is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as a Supreme Court justice this weekend.

The first lady described her tour, which took her to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt, as "amazing" and said she hoped people would talk more about her visit and less about her fashion choices.

Egyptian First Lady Enitssar Amer received Melania Trump, wife of the US President Donald Trump, at Cairo International Airport on Saturday. She added that she is glad that the Senate voted, keeping her answers very general.

"We are having funding, so we are helping the countries, and we are working hard for helping them, and we will continue to help", she said.

Amazon Wage Increase Includes Removal Of Stock Options, Bonuses

When asked if any African leaders had asked about her husband's alleged remarks about "s**thole" countries on the continent, she said no.

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 United States embassy before heading to the Pyramids of Giza. "Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't, but I have my own voice and opinions, and it's very important to me I express what I feel".

During her one-day excursion to meet Egyptian president Abdel-Fatah al Sisi she also found time to sightsee.

She wore slacks and a tie as she stepped off the plane in Cairo, where she proceeded to the presidential palace, an ornate cream stone building with arabesque designs.

Some have claimed the trip is a snub at her husband.

This person even had a recommendation for the First Lady's next stylish look. There she led a line of children singing to traditional music. Some commentators said she had made a mistake by wearing a white pith helmet, a hat favored by 19th century European colonialists, because of its association with the exploitation of Africans.
