Melania Trump feeds baby elephants and goes on safari in Kenya - Ireland

First Lady Melania Trump criticised for 'colonial' hat choice in Kenya

Reacting to the storm over her attire, Mrs Trump told reporters in Egypt: "I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear".

The stylish former model also said she did not always agree with her husband's tweets and shared her opinions with him directly, even though he did not always follow her advice.

She was asked about her decision the day before to wear a safari hat that some people have criticised for its "colonial" associations, but refused to be drawn.

First lady calls out the press during her trip to Africa; reaction on 'Fox & Friends'.

The helmet, often seen for years in movies set in African nations like Indiana Jones and any number of the James Bond films is an enduring symbol of European, particularly British and French, colonialism.

She and her local counterpart Margaret Kenyatta held talks on the welfare of mothers and children, and conservation, according to the Kenyan presidency.

Her stepsons have also been criticised for their passion for hunting.

Who could forget the time she wore a pair of Manolo Blahnik stiletto heels to tour a Puerto Rican disaster zone?

Trump hosts Kavanaugh for ceremonial Supreme Court swearing
If there had been higher Democratic turnout in the 2010 and 2014 midterms, Kavanaugh could not have made it to the Supreme Court . "The way they really tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace", Trump said on Monday, US east coast time .

Trump calls Brett Kavanaugh allegations a 'hoax'
There is evidence that independent voters, especially women , in the suburbs have struggled with supporting Trump as president. Trump had originally called Ford's testimony credible but later changed his tune and mocked her for forgetting certain details.

Girl pulls sword out of Swedish lake
The Minnesota native, Saga Vanecek, initially thought it was a stick stuck at the bottom of the lake in Sweden. According to the museum, the sword is about 33 inches long and "exceptionally well-preserved".

Washington has been gripped by high drama and emotion in recent days, from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault - to protests against his nomination which saw more than 300 arrests, including celebrities.

During her whistlestop five-hour stay, the US First Lady was scheduled to visit the Pyramids of Giza and the new National Museum under construction next door.

Melania was seen off by her host First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

But it was her attire which drew concern on Twitter, as she donned a white pith hat, with her riding pants and boots.

The visit came as Egyptian security forces face a persistent insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula across the Suez Canal to the northeast.

"Her husband has been the biggest disgrace to any achievements of the women's movement, so they might need to turn their attention there first", said Rabab El Mahdi, a professor of political science at the American University of Cairo, when asked for her reaction to Trump's visit and her agenda. "It's a lovely thing to see", he tweeted.

It's interesting that she feels like that considering she wore a jacket reading 'I don't really care, do you?' while visiting immigrant children separated from their parents and detained in cages.
