First Lady Melania Trump criticised for 'colonial' hat choice in Kenya

First lady Melania Trump visits the ancient statue of Sphinx with the body of a lion and a human head at the historic site of Giza Pyramids in Giza near Cairo Egypt Oct. 6 2018

During her whistlestop five-hour stay in Cairo, she was also scheduled to visit the new National Museum under construction next door to the Pyramids. But for many observers it will be remembered for her choice of headgear.

Kim Yi Dionne, an African politics expert at UC Riverside, tweeted: "Melania Trump wearing a pith helmet on her trip to "Africa" is more than a silly sartorial choice".

Trump's predecessor Barack Obama criticised alleged human rights abuses in Egypt following the army's 2013 ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi but relations have since stabilised.

The US First Lady landed in Kenya on Thursday night and was received by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi County.

Quickly, people across the globe slammed her because the hat was similar to the one used by colonial masters in Kenya.


She appears to be relishing her time in Africa. It began in Ghana on Tuesday and continued in Malawi.

The US Senate is expected to give President Donald Trump a big political win later on Saturday by confirming conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice. "It's a attractive thing to see", he tweeted.

Speaking to reporters near the Great Sphinx, she says she's glad that both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, were heard.

The U.S. Agency for International Development has been working with the Egyptian government for the past several years on a project to lower groundwater levels to prevent additional damage to the landmarks.

President Trump in an Oval Office meeting in January grew frustrated at a proposed bipartisan immigration plan and asked those in the room why they would want people from Haiti, Africa and other "s--hole countries" coming into the United States, according to multiple sources either briefed on or familiar with the discussion.
