First lady talks Trump, Twitter as she tours the pyramids

US First Lady Melania Trump boards her military plane prior to departing Cairo International Airport in Cairo

The first lady has said that she looks forward to spreading the message of her "Be Best" child-welfare initiative.

Melania Trump concluded her trip to Africa on Saturday by voicing support for her husband's controversial Supreme Court pick and urging people to pay less attention to what she wears.

"I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", she said bluntly.

Melania Trump is in Egypt to wrap up a four-country tour of Africa by visiting the pyramids and the Great Sphinx.

In Egypt, Trump was due to meet with the wife of President Abdul Fattah al-Sissi and tour the world-famed pyramids and sphinx in Giza near Cairo.

Earlier this week, eyebrows were also raised when she wore a pith helmet - a symbol of British colonial rule across Africa - during a brief safari in Kenya.

The First Lady left Washington Tuesday to make stops in Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt in a week-long journey focusing on children.

Braves have a lot of history at Dodger Stadium
Then it felt like he smelled the blood in the water and just made a decision to take matters into his own hands, so to speak. The Braves got nothing going offensively and could only watch while the Dodgers sluggers launched multiple homers.

Over in Kenya, she visited an elephant orphanage where she fed baby elephants and was given a gift of one them.

The first lady also did a few things she's never done before, like wave to journalists as she boarded a USA government aircraft for the grueling five-day tour across multiple time zones.

Melania faced backlash and mocking multiple times this week for the outfits she donned while on her solo tour of Africa.

No one in Africa brought up the "derogatory comments" Mr Trump was alleged to have made, she added, despite the African Union demanding he "retract and apologise" for them.

Mr Okwaroh did agree that spouses of presidents may influence the perception of their foreign audiences, but it may not necessarily ease bilateral tensions unless she engages in a programme that can determine relations.

Her fashion choice is likely a carry-on of this outdated understanding of the continent.

Kavanaugh, 53, was selected by President Donald Trump to replace Anthony Kennedy, a Ronald Reagan-nominee who announced his retirement on June 27.
