Melania on Donald Trump: 'I don't always agree what he tweets'

First Lady Melania Trump criticised for 'colonial' hat choice in Kenya Melania Trump in Egypt to tour pyramids, Sphinx

While wrapping up her first worldwide tour as First Lady, Melania answered questions from reporters while sitting outside the pyramids in Giza, Egypt.

With the Great Sphinx of Gaza looming in the background, first lady Melania Trump weighed in on a number of topics Saturday, including the media obsession with her wardrobe, Brett Kavanaugh's qualifications for the Supreme Court and her view of his chief accuser's testimony, as well as her confession that sometimes she lobbies the tweeter-in-chief to put down his phone.

Even in the lead-up to the 2016 election and afterwards, Ms Trump was largely hidden in the background, while Mr Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka was dubbed the "unofficial First Lady".

The first lady was wearing cream wide-legged slacks, a white shirt, with a black necktie, with a Ralph Lauren jacket over her shoulders. It's a reflection of her outdated understanding of Africa.

"@FLOTUS we don't want to talk about your fashion choices either".

Mrs Trump arrived in Cairo on Saturday after a flight from Kenya.

However, she has been criticized for wearing a colonial hat during her tour in Nairobi National park. Earlier in the day the former model stepped off a plane at Cairo global airport wearing high-waisted white trousers, a pleated white shirt and a black tie with a beige jacket.

Melania Trump has said she often disagrees with what her husband tweets and she tells him so - but he doesn't listen.

"The First Lady did a tremendous job representing our country in Africa - like no one has before", he said in a statement to reporters.

Trump declined to say whether she believed Ford.

"Thank you for what you do and taking care of them", Trump told the orphanage's staff after learning more about the facility and the circumstances that brought numerous young children and babies to it.

"We need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had", she said.

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). Then she was encircled by a group of singing kids and danced with them. The U.S. Agency for International Development has been working with the Egyptian government on lowering groundwater levels to prevent additional damage to the landmarks. Trump has twice tried unsuccessfully to slash USAID's budget by a third. "It's very emotional", Trump said after her visit.

The first lady's focus on elephant preservation also clashed with the administration's decision to allow Americans to resume importation of body parts of African elephants hunted for sport.
