Melania calls Kavanaugh 'highly qualified' for Supreme Court

  • The First Lady fed an elephant and met with national park workers

The First Lady has been criticised for choosing to wear a pith hat while on safari in Kenya, after its connections to colonialism.

During her visit to Kenya, she was also shown a pile of ash of ivory that was seized and burnt in the country recently.

Melania Trump wore slacks and a tie as she stepped off the plane in Cairo, where she proceeded to the presidential palace.

The First Lady was photographed wearing a white pith helmet while on a safari in Nairobi National Park in Kenya.

Mrs Trump described her tour as "amazing" and she said she hoped the talk would focus on her visit, rather than her fashion choices.

This isn't the first time Trump has been discussed on social media for her style choices. "The regime she's representing in Kenya is a white supremacist one whose policies & ideological grounding are a continuation of earlier forms of imperialism, represented by the pith helmet".

According to a statement by the Egyptian presidency on Saturday, El-Sisi expressed to Mrs Trump Egypt's keenness on boosting the special strategic partnership between the two countries.

She proceeded to dress nearly exclusively in tailored whites and tans (from a mix of mainly European luxury fashion brands), an aesthetic that really did make her look a bit like Jane Porter before she met that Tarzan chap.

Melania was seen off by her host First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

The first lady also would not say if she believed Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh.

Her fashion choice is likely a carry-on of this outdated understanding of the continent.

"I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court", the First Lady told reporters traveling with her in Egypt on her first solo trip.

She later visited an orphanage before meeting over tea with Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta and taking in a children's dance performance at the National Theatre in Nairobi.

USA Today reports Trump has since responded to the controversy, sharing how she wishes everyone would stop focusing on what she wears and instead, what she does. She also promoted the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development - an agency whose funding her husband has proposed slashing twice during his presidency, per The Washington Post. "Her husband campaigned successfully under the fascist slogan "America First, ' and has since implemented his "Muslim ban" and encouraged the detention of migrants, including separating children from their parents and keeping them in 'tender age" cages". And to Lilongwe in Malawi, where she visited a primary school on Thursday, Ms Trump has been welcomed by slogans anti-Trump.
