Melania Trump doesn't want us to talk about what she's wearing.

It's not the first time Trump has been in the news for an outfit.

Her trip was also not without fashion controversies.

Melania Trump, who is in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.

Children living at The Nest in Nairobi greeted her with singing and dancing, and it didn't take long before the typically reserved US first lady gave in to the moment. "We used to see it sometimes with Michelle Obama". "This was a puzzler".

However, following reports of her husband, President Donald Trump describing some African countries as a "shithole" in February, Mrs Trump's visit could also be an attempt to build diplomatic relations.

Pith helmets were originally worn by European explorers to cope with warmer climates, and soon became a key part of commanding officers' uniforms, as they led local troops. She wore local designers when on tour, and a number of emerging and African-American designers when at home.

"It is amusing that she's cosplaying as a Nazi who literally gets melted by god at the end of a good movie", comedian Rob Delaney posted on Twitter.

Tito Mboweni appointed new finance minister after Nhlanhla Nene’s abrupt resignation
The rand and the country's bonds gained as traders welcomed the appointment of Mboweni as finance minister. In December 2015, Zuma fired Nene and replaced him with little unknown ANC MP Des van Rooyen.


Trump declined to say whether she believed Ford. "It's not a place looking for white saviors in colonial getup". Social media lit up with complaints about her choice of a hat viewed by some as a symbol of Kenya's colonial past and its one-time domination by the British.

Trump has focussed on her signature issue of campaigning for children with stops at a hospital, primary school and an orphanage.

Seay insists that the valuable focus of a first lady could have been better applied in contexts that felt more representative of the triumphs and challenges of today's Africa.

It must then go to the presidential palace, according to the egyptian press.

"We just completed an incredible trip - we went to Ghana, we went to Malawi, we went to Kenya, here we are in Egypt", the first lady told reporters Saturday.

"Personally, I think the US First Lady's decision to wear a pith helmet is appropriate", another person said, before grilling the first lady's style choice. In doing her own thing, the very private first lady essentially peeled back the curtain ever so slightly as she wiped away the serious face she wears around Washington.

The first lady is visiting Africa on her first big solo global trip.
