Melania Trump Told Reporters She 'Doesn't Always Agree' With Her Husband

The "Be Best" campaign went worldwide last week as Mrs. Trump visited Africa, but media covering the four-nation tour often spent time opining on the cultural messaging of her clothes. "We went to Ghana, we went to Malawi, we went to Kenya, here we are in Egypt", Trump said.

The four-country trip was a coming out of sorts for the first lady in the world stage.

"I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear".

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

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations. "She got to know first-hand the people of Africa, and they loved and respected her everywhere she went". "I am against any kind of abuse or violence".

The US Senate is expected to give President Donald Trump a big political win later on Saturday by confirming conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice. His confirmation would give the USA president a clear win in his drive to cement conservative dominance of the high court.

The African sojourn also follows sharp criticism of the president after he was quoted in an Oval Office meeting in January with several lawmakers as referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as "s--thole countries" when discussing immigration. She fed formula to two of the elephants that are being raised at the park and reached out to others, patting one's back and stroking the ear of another. "And that was anonymous source and I would leave it at that", she said. "I don't always agree with what he says and I tell him that", she said.

"I have my own voice and my opinions, and it's very important for me that I express what I feel", she said.

The first lady was similarly immersed in the moment earlier at Nairobi National Park, where she had gone early Friday to highlight elephant conservation.

Pairing tanned riding trousers with a simple white collared shirt, the first lady topped off her outfit with colonial-era headwear - a white pith helmet, according to Harper's Bazaar.

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. It should also, according to the egyptian press, visit the site of the future grand museum to house the rich collections of egyptian antiquities.

Trump's trip, which took her to Ghana and Malawi as well, has also focused on children - one expressed goal of the trip was to highlight her "Be Best" campaign, which promotes "encouragement, kindness, compassion and respect" among kids.

Kim Yi Dionne, an African politics expert at UC Riverside, tweeted: Melania Trump wearing a pith helmet on her trip to Africa is more than a silly sartorial choice.
