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

06 October 2018, 10:43 | Myron Mathis

Speaking in Cairo on the tour's final leg, Trump praised Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said she was glad he and his accuser had a chance to be heard following allegations of sexual assault.

Standing in front of the Sphinx, Mrs. Trump said she makes her opinions clear with her husband.

CAIRO Melania Trump says she has, at times, told the president to put his phone down.

On a day when President Trump tweeted comments calling anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators "paid professional protesters", the First Lady admitted she sometimes disagrees with his social media posts. They alleged that Trump and her husband, President Donald Trump, are out of touch with modern Africa and only know the region through various stereotypes.

She met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, Entissar Mohameed Amer, before heading to the nearby city of Giza to see the pyramids and Sphinx to highlight US -backed preservation efforts.

Matt Carotenuto, a historian who coordinates St Lawrence University's African Studies programme, told CNN that Melania's choice of the hat was like her showing up to "an Alabama cotton farm in a confederate uniform".


Her office has described the trip as a "showcase" for the work of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), even at a time when her husband's government is looking to slash US aid across the world. Kate Bennett, of CNN, tweeted: "I have never seen her smile..."

Kenya is the third stop on her Africa tour, which began Tuesday in Ghana and continued in Malawi on Thursday.

The first lady was similarly immersed in the moment earlier at Nairobi National Park, where she had gone early Friday to highlight elephant conservation. " jacket. Her latest outfit while in Kenya has people disturbed".

However her choice of a white colonial-style pith helmet while on safari drew some criticism on Twitter, with one person comparing her look to that of a "colonial administrator".

Trump departs for Egypt on Saturday morning before returning to the United States.
