First lady visits Egypt on last stop in visit to Africa

First lady visits Egypt on last stop in visit to Africa

She met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, Entissar Mohameed Amer, before heading to the nearby city of Giza to see the pyramids and Sphinx to highlight US-backed preservation efforts.

Asked whether she's ever told her husband to put his phone down, she smiled and said yes. The first lady was quickly encircled by the gleeful children and she smiled and danced some more. It was her first major solo trip overseas and a rare example of a time when she has answered questions by reporters.

But to some - especially those who study African history - her fashion choice in Kenya was still a big error on the global stage: the sight of a first lady wearing something so closely associated with the exploitation of Africans.

"When people think of Africa, they have these standard narratives", Dionne said.

Her visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, came on the fourth day of a week-long visit to Africa.

While in Africa, Trump has gone into nearly no specifics about her visit, except to say that she has hoped to learn more about life in Africa and to promote her child-focused "Be Best" platform.

She toured Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt.

During their discussions at State House, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta gave the US First Lady a copy of Beyond Zero's strategic framework for 2018-2022 which she launched earlier in the year. "I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear".
