Melania Trump Visits the Pyramids as She Wraps up Solo Africa Tour

First lady Melania Trump looks out over Nairobi National Park in Nairobi Kenya

In kenya during safari she was photographed wearing a white pith helmet. Earlier in the day, she opened her visit to Kenya by feeding baby elephants and going on a safari at Nairobi National Park.

Mrs. Trump visited a few of Egypt's many cultural sites including the Sphinx, and the Great Pyramid - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Her trip through four African nations-Ghana, Malawi, Egypt, and Kenya-has featured her doing numerous things you would expect of someone going on a stereotypical vacation through the Motherland, including going on a safari and visiting the Sphinx.

This isn't the first time Trump has been discussed on social media for her style choices. The regime she represented in Kenya is a white supremacist one.

Mrs Trump addressed the criticism over her sartorial choice Saturday while stood in front of the Great Sphinx in Giza, Egypt.

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". In June, the first lady was photographed wearing a jacket emblazoned with the words "I really don't care, do u?" on its back.

It was a striking moment for a first lady who, perhaps more than any other in modern times, has been happy to be a walking contradiction.

Egypt was the fourth and last stop of her African trip, which had seen her promoting the work of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), a department that has seen its funding cut twice by Mr Trump.

She will have a couple of weeks to return to her normal duties, after her tour of Africa.

However, she declined to say if she believed the accusations. She launched the campaign in May to focus on the overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behavior.

Trump expressed some transparency with reporters in Egypt about her husband President Donald Trump's own Twitter comments.

In Malawi, Melania visited the Chipala Primary School where she donated textbooks, balls and supplies to the pupils and teachers.

"You know what? We just completed an wonderful trip".

Let's be honest, it's no "Let's Move" (Michelle Obama's initiative during her husband's time in office, tied to his national taskforce into childhood obesity).
