First lady Melania Trump has been criticized for wearing a white pith helmet while on a safari in Kenya on Friday.

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. "Also, she was photographed in safari attire multiple times on this trip".

"FBI investigation was done, is completed and Senate voted", Trump said while speaking with reporters in front of the Sphinx in Egypt during her first major solo trip overseas.

"I don't always agree [with] what he tweets, and I tell him that", the first lady said as she stood near the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Trump, who has also visited Ghana and Malawi, kicked off her day with a stop at an elephant orphanage, where she helped bottle feed an elephant and patted another, clearly having a good time.

US First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Egypt from Kenya on Saturday as part of her first solo global trip, which has also taken her to Ghana and Malawi.

Trump said that her husband's alleged derogatory comment about African countries did not come up on her trip. Melania Trump has fed baby elephants as she visits a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts. " jacket. Her latest outfit while in Kenya has people disturbed".

However, her choice of headgear has been questioned.

"You know what, we just completed an wonderful trip, I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear, and that's very important, what I do, what we're doing with USAID, what I'm doing with my initiatives and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", she said.

"The way she's dressed and the activities she's undertaken reflect an outdated view of the continent", Seay says.

Mrs. Trump seemed reticent at first but she eventually stepped down from the platform she was standing on to take a large milk bottle with a big red nipple and feed some of the orphaned elephants being raised at the park a few miles outside of downtown Nairobi. "It's a handsome thing to see", he tweeted.

But Trump's seemingly small decision to wear the helmet appeared to show a similarly limited understanding of the places she's been this week, argued Dionne, the political science professor.
