First lady visits Egypt on last stop in visit to Africa

"I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court", Trump wrote.

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion for days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination.

But Trump declined to directly respond to a question about if she believed Ford, only saying, "I will move on that".

She added: "We need to help all of the victims no matter what kind of abuse they had".

She made the comments during a four-country tour of Africa in her first solo trip overseas. "I don't always agree what he tweets and I tell him that", she said.

The First Lady of the USA showed off a tan-and-white look while exploring Egypt.

"Nobody discussed that with me", she said of her hosts in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi and Egypt last week.

Sporting a white pith helmet, US first lady Melania Trump on Friday went on a short safari outside Nairobi, taking photos and video of a dazzle of zebras with her phone.

When asked if any African leaders had asked about her husband's alleged remarks about "s**thole" countries on the continent, she said no.

Melania Trump was brief in her comments on the controversy over Kavanaugh's nomination. "(Also, she was photographed in safari attire multiple times on this trip)", a person tweeted. "Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't".

Many drew comparisons with Meryl Streep's character in Out Of Africa, while some said she was completing the look of "colonialiser".

She was shown a pile of ashes, after the park burnt 105 tonnes of ivory to dissuade people from the trade.

In June 2018, the First Lady wore a jacket scribbled "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U? It is a handsome thing to see".

"We are having funding, so we are helping the countries, and we are working hard for helping them, and we will continue to help", she said.

Music accompanied by the beat of drums greeted her arrival at an orphanage in Nairobi, where a group of children dressed in bright yellow T-shirts and patterned bottoms escorted her up a driveway to the building.
