'I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear'.

"I don't always agree what he tweets", she said in a rare, unscripted interaction with reporters.

Earlier this week, eyebrows were also raised when she wore a pith helmet - a symbol of British colonial rule across Africa - during a brief safari in Kenya.

Melania Trump has said she often disagrees with what her husband tweets and she tells him so - but he doesn't listen.

Her visit will wrap up what has been considered a successful trip, where she has been promoting her Be Best program, focusing on things like cyberbullying and wellbeing.

But Trump declined to directly respond to a question about if she believed Ford, only saying, "I will move on that".

Liverpool v Manchester City

Stormy Daniels may get an embrace from Anna Wintour, but Melania Trump still has the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Her first-ever visit to Africa is also her first extended solo worldwide trip as first lady.

She said her biggest achievement of the trip was "meeting people" and finding out about the "successful programmes that USAID is providing to the countries" that was "helping them on the journey to self reliance".

She was shown a pile of ashes, after the park burnt 105 tonnes of ivory to dissuade people from the trade. While the president has notably in the past referred to African nations as part of a collection of "shithole countries", he struck a markedly different tone at the United Nations general assembly in NY last month, before Melania's departure. It was announced that more than a year-and-a-half after becoming First Lady, Trump will now sit down for her first solo interview with ABC News for a 20/20 special airing Friday, Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. ET. In Kenya she saw baby elephants and visited orphanages, and in Malawi she visited schools, part of her so-called Be Best campaign, which focuses on child welfare. The White House produced several videos of Trump at each stop. "We used to see it sometimes with Michelle Obama".

During her trip, the first lady's focus has been on humanitarian efforts, specifically those funded by USA government aid, and those that work to better the lives of children.

Sometimes, she said, she even asks the president to put down his phone.
