The former model stepped off a plane at Cairo worldwide airport where she was welcomed by Egyptian First Lady Intissar Amer al-Sisi.

She was welcomed by Egyptian First Lady Intissar Amer al-Sisi, an observant Muslim who wore an ankle-length blue dress and matching headscarf covering her hair.

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

"I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", Melania said, even though it was hard not to be drawn to her outfit at the Pyramids.

"The way she's dressed and the activities she's undertaken reflect an outdated view of the continent", Seay says.

"She got to know firsthand the people of Africa and they loved and respected her everywhere she went", he continued. "I'm against any kind of abuse".

Mrs. Trump seemed most happy in Kenya, where she visited Nairobi National Park to highlight elephant preservation.

She added: "I tell him my opinions and maybe in some of them we don't agree. Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't, but I have my own voice and opinions, and it's very important to me I express what I feel", she continued.

Pompeo optimistic Pyongyang trip will yield US-North Korea progress

Jesus unhappy with Guardiola’s penalty call
I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence. Mahrez let slip a good chance on the hour when he shot wide when well placed in the penalty box.

Mrs Trump's outfit choices have drawn considerable attention, as when she wore a jacket that read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" during a trip to visit migrant children who'd been separated from their families at the southern border.

It comes after the United States president allegedly called some African countries "shitholes" during a White House meeting on immigration in January. "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".

"Nobody discussed that with me (during the trip), and I never heard him saying those comments".

In her meeting with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Egyptian First Lady Entissar al-Sisi at Cairo-based Presidential Palace on Saturday, Melania voiced her admiration for the Egyptian civilization.

"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".

The low-key tour came to an end as her husband was set to score a big political win after days of acrimonious deadlock inside and outside the Senate over his Supreme Court pick.

But Melania Trump doesn't want us to talk about that.

Melania Trump has her "Be Best" initiative for children's wellbeing. She later traveled to Malawi where she took in a school lesson with children.
