Melania Trump has tea with Kenya's 1st lady

Now in Kenya, the first lady's solo venture from the White House took her to Nairobi National Park where she fed a baby elephant and went on safari.

Everywhere she has visited during her trip across Africa this week, first lady Melania Trump has cradled infants and held children.

US First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Kenya on Thursday night, to a busy schedule of the East African nation, before heading to Egypt.

Even though some anxious that previous statements made by her husband, President Donald Trump, would affect Trump's visit, one resident said the complete opposite. "I wanted to be here to see the successful programs that the United States is providing to the children.

They are simply taking advantage of their First Lady's high profile visit in Malawi to speak out so that the media here takes their message along as well", he said.

Correspondents with her say she's never appeared so delighted as she has been on her trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Cairo. Her own 12-year-old son attends a private school in Maryland.

We think her visit will make a different on her husband decision of cutting Aid to African on reproduction health, HIV/AIDS among others.

Both the models feature a microSD card slot, enabling you to further expand the phone's storage capacity up to 400GB. The notch has allowed Nokia to squeeze a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display into the physical footprint of a smaller handset.

During a ceremony at the school, the first lady participated in giving the school 1.4 million books.

Another sign reportedly referenced President Trump's notorious remark about "s***hole countries."

Trump took the time to read a story to a group of children before a young boy read a story to her in turn.

Melania and her host are expected to head to State House for talks before going to the Kenya National Theatre where they will be treated to Kenyan creative cultural performances. The trip is part of her "Be Best" initiative, which focuses on improving the lives of children.

The US first lady received a joyous welcome in Malawi upon her arrival at Kamuzu International Airport, with singing and dancing by a troupe of women and scores of schoolchildren waving African and Malawian flags.

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. "It is a lovely thing to see", Trump tweeted. The first lady was quickly encircled by the gleeful children and she smiled and danced some more.
