Melania Trump: 'Glad' both Kavanaugh and Ford were heard

Melania Trump loses footing with elephant, but not with kids

US first lady Melania Trump went on a short safari on Friday in Kenya, the third country on her almost week-long Africa tour.

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion for days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination which saw more than 300 arrests, including celebrities.

The US first lady tour to Africa has been part of her BE BEST initiative which focuses on improving the lives of children.

Asked whether she's ever told her husband to put his phone down, she smiled and said yes. "I am against any kind of abuse or violence". 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'.

"I tell him my opinions, what I believe, and in some of them maybe we don't agree", she added.

"We are having funding, so we are helping the countries, and we are working hard for helping them, and we will continue to help", she said. As photos from the visit show, she donned a white pith helmet.

It didn't take long for the typically reserved USA first lady to dive fully into the moment. Kate Bennett, of CNN, tweeted: "I have never seen her smile..." She also walked through the "Door of No Return", the portal through which the slaves were shipped to the New World, and gazed out at the Atlantic Ocean as if trying to imagine the harrowing journey. No statements were made to the press.

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

Her meeting with Sisi and his wife, Entissar Amer, did, however, touch on the Egyptian state's "interest in enhancing the role of women in the society", according to the president's office, though without further details.

Mrs. Trump arrived at The Nest orphanage on Friday after helping feed baby elephants, still clad in the riding trousers and tall brown boots she had worn on a safari. "Do U?" jacket on the way to visit detained migrant children in Texas, as well as wearing heels to meet hurricane victims.

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 promote her "Be Best" campaign, which promotes "encouragement, kindness, compassion and respect" among kids.
