She also visited a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade. She then also paid a visit to the presidential palace for having a private tea with Rebecca Akufo-Addo, Ghana's first lady.

People on Twitter agree with Bennett's sentiment - suggesting that it's likely a result of her distance from her husband and the controversy surrounding his Supreme Court nominee.

Melania Trump's solo trip to Africa has captivated worldwide aid and global health advocates, who have otherwise watched in frustration as the Trump administration moved to defund and deprioritize longstanding American programs aimed at strengthening Africa and solidifying US interests across the developing world. The internet thinks so.

Melania Trump was greeted by a young girl and Gertrude Maseko, the first lady of Malawi, upon her arrival Thursday.

Staff praised her for visiting.

Her visit has included promoting the work of the US Agency for International Development, whose funding President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

Mrs Trump arrived in Ghana on Tuesday with a big wave, a smile and a baby in her arms, aiming to promote child welfare during a five-day tour of Africa. The visit will "focus on maternal and newborn care in hospitals, education for children, the deep culture and history are woven into each African country, and how the United States is supporting each country on its journey to self-reliance".

She is on her first-ever visit to Africa and her first extended solo worldwide trip as first lady.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", the first lady said.

USMCA will "allow us to reclaim a supply chain that has been off-shored to the world because of unfair trade issues". But, the USA market is allowed to go into it now.

The first lady donated more "Be Best"-themed items there, including chalk for teachers and soccer balls with the White House logo".

Melania Trump has sashayed to the beat of African music while being welcomed to an orphanage in Kenya.

"Do you see the cameras?" she said to the boy before cradling another baby.

Others are not convinced the White House sees Africa as "extremely important", the first lady's trip notwithstanding.

"I was heartened to spend time with the students and was honored to donate school supplies and soccer balls", she said. One woman's sign said #MELANIATOO, with the "ME" in bold black.

LILONGWE, MALAWI-Melania Trump got a different view of educating children as she visited an African primary school Thursday that has benefited from USA assistance but struggles with an enrolment of more than 8,500 students.

The Trump administration recently made a decision to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport.

Observers in Africa said Melania Trump could use her glamour to greater effect - more so than any visits she might make to hospitals and babies in need.
