Melania Trump feeds baby elephants in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts

US First Lady Melania Trump has arrived in Nairobi on the third day of her solo trip to Africa to promote health and education.

Upon arrival in Nairobi, Kenya, Mrs Trump is expected to visit State House as her first stop.

Malawi is the second nation stop on Trump's four-nation tour of the continent that includes Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and Egypt. She approached a crowd of children in royal-blue-and-orange school uniforms who sang in English, "Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome all of you".

The US First Lady then visited Chipala Primary in Malawi's capital, Lilongwe.

Her former real-estate mogul husband also appeared to be pleased with the success of his wife's visit, tweeting, "Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa". With a smile on her face, the first lady read along with children during their lessons.

The move began when Coutinho burst down the left before the former Liverpool man pulled the ball back across goal. Messi aimed for the same post he had hit twice earlier, and this time found the side netting.

We did okay in the Liverpool one and might've got a result there, so you always have to be positive going into games like this. Guardiola said: "I believe too much in that team, in those guys".

"We see, first hand, in Malawian hospitals, the shocking effect the budget cuts may ultimately have".

She visited the school to highlight the benefits of a USAID scheme to support African education, which has seen the U.S. distribute 9.6million books to schools across Malawi.

The first lady was greeted by students with a song, Fox News reported: "We are happy today to see you". "Takulandirani [Welcome] First Lady Melania Trump" was spelled out in red, white, and blue letters on the chalkboard.

"I wanted to be here to see the successful programs that [the] United States is providing the children, and thank you for everything you've done", Trump said. "I was heartened to spend time with the students". The soccer balls, along with tote bags donated for the teachers, sported the logo of "Be Best", the child well-being initiative Mrs. Trump launched this year.

The convoy of the US First Lady however passed by without any incident and Mrs Trump might have seen the protests.
