Melania Trump Faces Scrutiny for Hat Choice While Visiting Kenya

Melania Trump Faces Scrutiny for Hat Choice While Visiting Kenya

'I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court, ' Melania told reporters near the Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt on Saturday as she wrapped up a four-country trip in Africa.

So, should that be the case here, let us not be distracted: thanks to a white woman, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is nearly certainly going to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, President Donald Trump has mocked a survivor of sexual assault, and Ivanka Trump continues to be complicit in her father's administration.

Standing in front of the Sphinx, Mrs. Trump said she makes her opinions clear with her husband. She said her time on the continent so far has been "unforgettable" and "incredible".

"I give him my honest opinion and honest advice", she said.

"I don't always agree [with] what he tweets, and I tell him that", the first lady said.

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.

First lady Melania Trump visited the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx before leaving for the United States on October 6 as she wrapped up her first solo Africa trip. "I'm glad that Judge Kavanaugh was heard, FBI investigation was done, is completed, and [the] Senate voted". The people love her, and she loves them!

But it was her attire which drew concern on Twitter, as she donned a white pith hat, with her riding pants and boots.

Sancho, 18, has been named in a 25-man squad for the Nations League matches against Croatia and Spain alongside fellow first-timers Mason Mount and James Maddison.


This was Melania Trump's response when she was asked about her decision to wear a pith helmet while on safari in Kenya on Friday.

Melania Trump, 48, touched down at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, USA, this morning after spending the week on a whirlwind tour of Africa.

She was due to arrive back in Washington DC early on Sunday.

Melania Trump, in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.

But when she toured four African countries this week, ostensibly to market her new campaign called "Be Best", observers of worldwide politics saw it as soft diplomacy following President Trump's apparent disinterest - even disdain - towards the continent.

The first lady is, of course, no stranger to public commentary on her choice of dress.

Mrs. Trump seemed most happy in Kenya, where she visited Nairobi National Park to highlight elephant preservation. "It is a attractive thing to see".

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