United States president Donald Trump applauded the country’s first lady for ‘doing a tremendous job of representing our country’ on her first international solo trip, that took her to the African nations of Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.
Trump, who has had a somewhat controversial relationship with the African continent since coming to office in 2016, had been keenly following Melania’s trip in Africa.
‘‘Melania told me all about her trip in great detail and I’m so proud of the job she’s doing on behalf of children everywhere,” Trump said.
Melania arrived in Africa on her first solo trip on October 1 with the aim of partnering USAID to advance the activities of her “Be Best” campaign aimed at children and women empowerment efforts.
‘‘She works so hard and does it all out of love,’‘ Trump added.
Here’s a quick recap of Melania’s trip across the African continent.
In Malawi, Melania visited the Chipala Primary School where she donated textbooks, balls and supplies to the pupils and teachers.
“Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here,” she said after the school visit.
