Trevor Noah pokes fun at Melania Trump's visit to Africa

USA first lady Melania Trump meets with Fante chiefs to gain permission to visit Cape Coast castle, Ghana, October 3, 2018.

Melania Trump said Wednesday that she "will never forget" her visit to a former slave holding facility on Ghana's coast.

Former President Barack Obama and his family toured the castle in 2009. Obama said it was a reminder of "the capacity of human beings to commit great evil".

As Trump entered the chief's permission ceremony, which last approximately 15 minutes, she was greeted by a seven-year-old girl in native dress who handed her a bouquet of flowers.

But just hours earlier, Mrs Trump was also pictured beaming widely on a well-received trip to the Ghanian capita of Accra.

"Their efforts aim to increase access to education, and work to ensure all children acquire the skills needed to succeed in school and life", she said.

"The dungeons that I saw, it's really something that people should see and experience", she told reporters.
