But according to reports congress members have essentially ignored those requests. Afterwards, she visited the slave dungeon of the Cape Coast Castle. Just 77 teachers educate more than 8,500 students who attend the school. With just 22 classrooms, many students are forced to take their lessons outdoors, seated shoulder to shoulder in their uniforms on loose, red dirt.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", she said in a short speech afterwards at the USA embassy.

The US First Lady is now in Malawi on a tour focusing on promotion children's welfare. The high-pitched sounds of women vocalizing were heard at the airport and at her subsequent appearances.

The President of Ghana (where Melania will also stop on the trip), Nana Akufo-Addo, criticised the reported comments at the time, calling them "extremely unfortunate".

After leaving the ambassador's residence, Mrs. Trump went to the State House for tea with Gertrude Mutharika, her Malawian counterpart.

As Miliam sat sounding out letters and words, Trump sat with her hands clasped and smiled as she watched the group.

Melania Trump's visit, which started in Ghana and will continue on to Kenya and Egypt, has so far attracted varied interest levels in Africa with few crowds lining streets to see her.
