First Lady Melania Trump Will Not Attend Brett Kavanaugh's Official Swearing-In Ceremony

09 October 2018

The First Lady's visit to Africa has offered up a softer side of the Trump administration, which is facing a critical vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday.

On his sharp words on Twitter: "I don't always agree with his tweets and I tell him that". "That's very important, what I do, what we're doing with USAID, my initiatives, and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear". Sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn't.

Trump - wearing another white hat - used the symbolic backdrop as a moment to discuss her six-day trip to Africa, including whether any of her hosts had brought up the disparaging comments her husband has reportedly made about African countries.

She then moved to the presidential palace where she met with Mr. Sissi.

Entissar Amer, the First Lady of the Arab Republic of Egypt and Thomas Goldberger, the Chargé d'Affaires of the United States Embassy to Egypt, greeted Mrs. Trump.

Melania Trump, 48, has just touched back down on USA soil after a week-long tour around Africa.

On Oct. 5, Twitter users slammed her for wearing a colonial style hat while on a safari ride through Nairobi National Park in Kenya.

The U.S. first lady hopscotched across Africa without President Donald Trump, commanding a spotlight that was hers alone.

The visit came as Egyptian security forces face a persistent insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula across the Suez Canal to the northeast. "I feel I've seen that look somewhere before", another tweeted. She wore a Zara jacket with the words "I Really Don't Care".
