First lady Melania Trump brings "Be Best" campaign to Malawi school

Melania Trump touched down in Africa for her four-nation tour on Tuesday, and people are pleasantly surprised to see how happy she looks during her first solo global trip as the first lady.

Trump opened her first extended solo worldwide trip on Tuesday in Ghana.

The first lady also caught flak for her outfit on Friday, which critics said made her look like a colonial conqueror.

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump quietly chose to once again allow Americans to import body parts of African elephants shot for sport. "I thought I wasn't going to have a chance to see her". Upon her departure, the first lady gifted children with dozens of "Be Best" soccer balls, tote bags and school supplies.

The remaining stops on her tour are Kenya and Egypt.

Some children have lessons outdoors, where they sit shoulder-to-shoulder on loose, red dirt.

Nana Amba Eyiaba, queen mother of Cape Coast, told the newspaper that Ghanaians were both excited and anxious about her visit.

Looking relaxed and happy, the former model gave a baby elephant bottled formula at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, famed for its work rescuing the orphans from the wild.

Reporters with Melania Trump are not as euphoric. It comes after January reports that her husband complained about immigrants coming to the USA from "s-hole" countries, a phrase President Trump denied making.

Trump met with her counterpart, Kenya's first lady Margaret Kenyatta, and attended a theatre performance.

After an outdoor book reading session, she was encircled by the same children she led up the driveway as they sang and danced some more.

She also stopped at a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade. For the first lady, who is famously private, her buoyant mood has been noticed around the world.

President Trump supported his wife's visit, sharing that, "It is a lovely thing to see".

"The continent of Africa is one that's extremely important to this administration, to the USA government, and I think that is evident in the fact that the first lady is making her first solo foreign trip to the African continent", Nauert said.
