US First Lady in Kenya Highlights Conservation, Visits Orphanage

Melania Trump is visiting a national park in Kenya to highlight animal conservation efforts.

The first lady was greeted by Malawi's first lady, Gertrude Mutharika, when she arrived in the country.

She'll also go on a quick safari.

A white woman on the roadside held up a handmade sign as the first lady's motorcade passed that said "Melania Me Too".

Preparations are underway at the theatre where the Sarakasi crew shall present a creative piece depicting a Kenyan girl growing in the ghetto who shines to stardom. The Secret Service whittled down the list of available options for security reasons, and then Melania picked countries where she could mix work with a small amount of tourism.

The First Lady's visit to Africa has offered up a softer side of the Trump administration, which is facing a critical vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday.

Mrs. Trump also stopped to visit an ivory burn site, where the material has been destroyed to discourage the ivory trade.

Children living at The Nest in Nairobi greeted her with singing and dancing, and it didn't take long before the typically reserved USA first lady gave in to the moment.

Dressed in riding trousers, boots and a white pith helmet, she climbed into an open-air vehicle for the safari, taking photos on her iPhone and peering through binoculars for a closer look at zebras, giraffes, impalas, rhinos and hippos bobbing in water.

"No child in this country is without a book", Malawi's Education Minister Bright Msaka told the first lady. After the readings, she was encircled by the singing children and danced some more.

Despite the president's previous statement, Afful said that "she has come to see how wonderful we are".

She will finally wrap-up her four-nation tour in Egypt and Malawi.

On her trip, Trump has promoted the advocacy initiative "Be Best", which she launched earlier this year.

Melenia Trump's visit to Africa could be made hard because of the past actions and words of her husband President Donald Trump reportedly used a vulgar and insulting term to describe African nations. The people love her, and she loves them! "It is a handsome thing to see", wrote Trump.

Trump joins other first ladies - including Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama - in embarking on solo trips to Africa.
