Reporters asked her opinion about the judge, and she said he was "highly qualified" to join the court.

We just completed an fantastic trip.

First Lady Melania Trump's sartorial decisions in Egypt left Twitter in a flurry.

However, social media users have been quick to mock the First Lady - questioning what it is she actually does beyond grabbing headlines with her outfit choices.

Trump has previously faced criticism for wearing a jacket that said "I really don't care, do u?" while visiting immigrant children detained at the USA border and for wearing R9,000 Manolo Blahnik pumps to visit the site of Hurricane Harvey. "I want to talk about my trip, not what I wear", she said.

This trip marks Trump's first visit to Africa, as Time reports.

Melania wore a pith helmet which is commonly believed to be a symbol of European colonialism in Africa.

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

Her next destination was Malawi before going to Kenya and finishing her tour in Egypt. Melania Trump's main agenda to Africa is about childhood nutrition and wildlife conservation. "And that was anonymous source and I would leave it at that", she said. "It's a reflection of her outdated understanding of Africa".

Kavanaugh, who denies the allegation, is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as a Supreme Court justice this weekend.

At a photo shoot in Egypt trump appeared in a bright ensemble, which she complemented with a black tie and a hat. "She works so hard, and does it all out of love". Melania told me about her trip in great detail, and I'm so proud of the job she's doing on behalf of children everywhere. Earlier in the day, she opened her visit to Kenya by feeding baby elephants and going on a safari at Nairobi National Park.

After an outdoor book reading session, she was encircled by the same children she led up the driveway as they sang and danced some more.

When asked Saturday in front of the Great Sphinx about remarks, which NPR and other news outlets have reported, in which President Trump disparaged African nations, the first lady said they never came up during her trip: "Nobody discussed that with me and I never heard him saying those comments".
