US First Lady Melania Trump wraps up solo African tour in Egypt

US First Lady Melania Trump speaks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al Sisi and his wife Intissar Amer upon her arrival at the Presidential palace in the Egyptian capital Cairo

"FBI investigation was done, is completed and Senate voted", Trump said while speaking with reporters in front of the Sphinx in Egypt during her first major solo trip overseas. But for many observers it will be remembered for her choice of headgear.

"We care, and we want to show the world that we care, and I've partnered and am working with USAID", Trump said, referring to the U.S. Agency for International Development.

She and her local counterpart Margaret Kenyatta held talks on the welfare of mothers and children, and conservation, according to the Kenyan presidency.

Melania Trump was also asked about any role she has advising her husband and the contrast between her words and actions and those of the president.

In one widely shared photograph, Donald Trump Jr poses with a knife in one hand and an elephant tail in the other, the animal's corpse beside him.

It didn't take long for the typically reserved USA first lady to dive fully into the moment.

After visiting a national park, where she was nudged by an orphaned baby elephant, the first lady visited the Nest, a children's home about 20 miles outside the Kenyan capital. She also visited Ghana and Malawi.

The first lady seemed more into the swing of things - literally - at events later that day with Kenyan children.

On Thursday, her husband tweeted: "Our country´s great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa".

Another key goal of her tour is to promote "education, healthcare, some conservation, and tourism", her spokeswoman said earlier. "It is a handsome thing to see". "I'm glad that Dr. Ford was heard; I'm glad that Judge Kavanaugh was heard".

Despite her expressed desires, a series of beige outfits Trump wore on her trip to Africa has been under scrutiny - not because critics find them unfashionable, but rather, because they say the clothing references harmful colonialist attitudes about the continent.

Kim Yi Dionne, a political-science professor at the University of California, Riverside, told the New York Times, "When people think of Africa, they have these standard narratives".
