The First Lady left Washington Tuesday to make stops in Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt in a week-long journey focusing on children.

The first lady also did a few things she's never done before, like wave to journalists as she boarded a US government aircraft for the grueling five-day tour across multiple time zones.

On her four-country tour of Africa (which wrapped up in Egypt on the weekend) Trump's wardrobe had a freakish "safari chic" vibe, starting from when she stepped onto her jet in Maryland wearing a pair of leopard print Manolo Blahniks.

"I don't always agree with what he tweets, and I tell him that", she said, per The Daily Mail. According to Associated Press, she also said, "I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", after a hat she wore drew ire and comparisons to British colonialism of Kenya.

Melania Trump doesn't want us to talk about what she's wearing.

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

However, she declined to say if she believed the accusations.

Juncker added that he hoped the European Council later this month would make "enough progress" that "we can see it through in November".

"I think all the victims, they need - 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", she added.

President Trump has been quoted as saying immigrants from Africa came from "shithole countries".

"Melania told me all about her trip in great detail and I'm so proud of the job she's doing on behalf of children everywhere, "Trump said. And that was anonymous source and I would leave it at that".

After donning a white pith helmet, Mrs. Trump later climbed into an open-air vehicle for the 90-minute safari, taking photos on an iPhone and peering through binoculars for a closer look at zebras, giraffes, impalas, sleeping rhinos and hippos bobbing in water.

Trump's visit to Cairo included a planned visit with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer, and the visit to the pyramids to highlight USA -backed preservation efforts there.

Trump's trip, which took her to Ghana and Malawi as well, has also focused on children - one expressed objective of the trip was to highlight her "Be Best" campaign, which promotes "encouragement, kindness, compassion and respect" among kids. During the ride, she stopped to visit a site where ivory is burned in an effort to discourage the trade of that material. She later traveled to Malawi where she took in a school lesson with children.
