Melania Trump has told her husband to put the phone down

Posted October 09, 2018

First lady Melania Trump said she was glad both Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford were heard with regard to the sexual assault allegations Ford made of him, but that Kavanaugh was also highly qualified for the job.

"I don't always agree with what he tweets, and I tell him that", she said, per The Daily Mail.

"Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't", Melania continued.

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.

Ms Trump's visit to Africa is seen by some observers as an effort to mend fences after her husband's reported comment that the continent contained "shithole" countries.

Security was tight with police deployed along the route and on rooftops as her convoy drove from the airport to the presidential palace.

The controversial wardrobe choice was interpreted to mean that the First Lady was out of touch with African history.

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

First Lady Melania Trump has been condemned for wearing a hat seen as a "symbol of status and oppression" during her trip to Africa.

She will visit the Great Sphinx and the pyramids, and had planned to meet Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer ahead of her day sightseeing.

Trump flew to Cairo from Nairobi earlier on Saturday on the last stage of her visit to Africa.

Laura Seay, an assistant professor at Colby College who studies African politics, conflict and development, told NPR that even before the (gasp!) pith helmet, Trump was "fulfilling a lot of stereotypes" on her trip.

Aljazeera: "My own view is that the USA first lady's decision to wear a pith helmet was appropriate and should be taken seriously". She revealed that she wishes people would stop worrying about her wardrobe.

Ms. Trump has left Egypt in the late afternoon.

First Lady Margaret Kenyatta is the patron of the transformative Beyond Zero initiative while US First Lady Melania Trump is the founder and promoter of the "Be Best" initiative created to improve the welfare of children.
