USA first lady says Egypt's pyramids a 'historical treasure' - Politics - Egypt

In a brief five minute press conference, she also told reporters she believes SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford when the pair were in high school is "highly qualified", and said: "I'm glad Dr Ford was heard".

However, following reports of her husband, President Donald Trump describing some African countries as a "shithole" in February, Mrs Trump's visit could also be an attempt to build diplomatic relations.

Trump drew some criticism for wearing a white pith helmet during a safari in Kenya because of its association with the exploitation of Africans. Sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn't.

Meanwhile, back at CNN, they were recollecting the good old days when former first lady Michelle Obama wore bright, colorful outfits on her trips to the continent - not pith hemets.

On her first stop, Melania visited children at a healthcare center with the country's First Lady before laying a wreath at at a slave fortress on the coast of Ghana.

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.

"Her husband campaigned successfully under the fascist slogan "America First, ' and has since implemented his "Muslim ban" and encouraged the detention of migrants, including separating children from their parents and keeping them in 'tender age" cages". I give him my honest opinion and honest advice.

@Thoreaus_Horse said: "Melania trump is showing up in these colonial imperialist landowner outfits in Africa and Egypt".

Pompeo: 'Progress on agreements' after meeting Kim in N. Korea
Kim made a verbal promise to destroy a missile engine testing site and Trump promised to suspend war games with South Korea. Neither the US nor the North Korean side released an immediate detailed readout on the content of Pompeo's talks with Kim.

The pith faux pas came while Melania toured Nairobi National Park in Kenya on Friday.

She replied with a laugh and said "yes".

The first lady rarely talks to reporters, and she chose a historic site to do so, near the Great Sphinx.

Melania Trump wore a white pith helmet on a visit to Africa that many pointed out is heavily symbolic of colonial rule. Remember that time when she wore an olive-green Arny-type jacket with the words, "I don't really care".

She was accompanied by Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled Anani and Egyptian Minister of Tourism Rania al-Mashat.

"I'm not elected, he's the president", she added.

The First Lady held a one-hour meeting with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife at the palace, the longest of her tour, and was then driven to the U.S. embassy before heading to the Pyramids of Giza. "It is a lovely thing to see".
