Melania Trump criticized for wearing white pith helmet in Kenya during safari

Melania also offered some supportive words for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"If we're talking about the supreme court and judge Kavanaugh, I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court", she told reporters in front of the pyramids of Giza.

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.

Responding to a question, she said she does not always agree with her husbands' tweets, and she tells him that, sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn't.

Melania Trump is in Egypt to wrap up a four-country tour of Africa by visiting the pyramids and the Great Sphinx.

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

Soon she was petting and stroking the elephants, smiling and laughing and having a good time.

"We care, and we want to show the world that we care, and I've partnered and am working with USAID", Trump said, referring to the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The First Lady later visited an orphanage, where she played with babies and read a book to the young children, before heading to watch a dance performance at the Nairobi National Theatre.

But on social media, the angry tweets and hashtags about the helmet rolled in: #FLOTUSinAfricaBingo documented what some felt were Trump's tone-deaf fashion choices. The people love her, and she loves them!

Trump departs for Egypt on Saturday morning before returning to the United States. "This is a first lady who's very, very careful about what she wears and what messages she does send, from her clothes to her facial expressions to. how she looks and acts", Bennett told NPR's Mary Louise Kelly.

"That's very important what I do, what we're doing with USA aid and what I do with my initiatives and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", she said.

"Melania Trump wearing a pith helmet on her trip to "Africa" is more than a silly sartorial choice".
