Melania Trump Visits Ex-Slave Holding Facility in Ghana

US First Lady Melania Trump arrives in Malawi on Thursday, during her solo African trip that has taken her to Ghana and will see her visit other African countries.

US First Lady Melania Trump visited a hospital in Ghana's capital Accra on the first day of her Africa tour.

"It's very emotional", the first lady said before departing.

The American First Lady thanked her hosts for the warm welcome she had received; describing her hosts "as attractive and warm people".

She added that it was a "special place".

The first lady also had a private tea and gift exchange with her Ghanaian counterpart, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

She then donned it again the following day before going to visit a local children's hospital, where she spent time meeting some of the patients.

During her tour on Wednesday, Melania Trump walked slowly with a guide through various wings, asking questions.

Trump has typically stayed out of the spotlight since her husband became president yet she has made headlines for rare public appearances. "The dungeons that I saw ... what happened so many years ago, it's really a tragedy".

It's a great, emotional privilege to meet cancer patients who've been successfully treated with immune checkpoint blockade. Such cancers can be hard to treat, and therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation can do damage as well as good.

Mr Kwamena Duncan said Ghana was honoured with the high-profile visit, saying it would deepen the ties between the two countries.

She has previously travelled alone to Canada and joined her husband on several foreign visits. "She's really doing a great job as first lady". "This is her trip, her initiative", she said.

She arrived Tuesday and toured a baby clinic.

"We both love Africa". The only issue is that most people in Africa are still waiting to get cyber.

The US president has yet to travel to Africa since taking office.

The 17th century Cape Coast castle, now a monument, has attracted world dignitaries including America's first black President Barack Obama and his family, who also shared their emotions at the site.

Many past American first ladies have also made trips to the African continent, including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.

However by the time she reached Cape Coast Castle, the mother-of-one had removed the addition to the look, leaving it free from any accessories, save for her diamond wedding band.

Ghana is seen as a haven of stability in an often turbulent region but despite the interest back home, the first lady's visit did not appear to have generated similar fervour locally.
