I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear.

Mrs Trump said Kavanaugh was "highly qualified for the Supreme Court" and was glad that both Ford and Kavanaugh had been given their say in front of the Senate.

However, she declined to say if she believed the accusations. "She got to know first-hand the people of Africa, and they loved and respected her everywhere she went". "I'm against any kind of abuse".

We think FLOTUS was trying to take a leaf of of Blake Lively's book - the actress has worn a slew of incredible tailored looks on her recent A Simple Favour film promo tour - but the choice of suit and the backdrop meant that instead of being praised for her sharp style she's been mocked.

Melania Trump is getting a lot of attention over a hat she wore during her visit to Africa this week - and not in a good way.

"Melania told me all about her trip in great detail and I'm so proud of the job she's doing on behalf of children everywhere, "Trump said". He listened sometimes, and sometimes did not, she said. "I have my own voice and my opinions and it's very important to me that I express how I feel".

Trump's visit to Cairo included a planned visit with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer, and the visit to the pyramids to highlight US -backed preservation efforts there.

The event will celebrate the Centenary of the end of the Great War, with other heads of state likely to attend.

Trump made a brief stop at the heavily fortified U.S. Embassy in downtown Cairo, driving through streets almost deserted because of a national holiday marking the 45th anniversary of Egypt's 1973 war with Israel.

A day earlier at a primary school in Malawi, Mrs. Trump highlighted work done by the U.S. Agency for International Development to help improve child literacy in the country.

Melania Trump is known to subtly communicate through her wardrobe, even offering potential jabs at the president with outfits that hold secret meanings.
