Melania Trump Discusses Brett Kavanaugh-And President Trump's Tweets-in Egypt

Melania Trump criticised for wearing 'colonialist' pith helmet on Kenyan safari

The U.S. first lady spoke briefly with reporters today as she was wrapping up a four-country tour of Africa with a visit to the pyramids and the Great Sphinx in Egypt. So, should that be the case here, let us not be distracted: thanks to a white woman, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is nearly certainly going to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, President Donald Trump has mocked a survivor of sexual assault, and Ivanka Trump continues to be complicit in her father's administration.

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.

And without voicing an opinion about the allegations, Mrs. Trump said victims of "any kind of abuse or violence" must be helped.

The first lady spurred outrage earlier this year when she wore a jacket bearing the words "I really don't care, do u?" during a trip to a Texas shelter that housed migrant children separated from their parents. She said her time on the continent so far has been "unforgettable" and "incredible".

The First Lady began wrapping up her solo tour of Africa in Egypt on Saturday with a trip to the pyramids and the Great Sphinx.

She was welcomed by Egyptian First Lady Intissar Amer al-Sisi, an observant Muslim who wore an ankle-length blue dress and matching headscarf.

Mrs Trump praised the reception and hospitality she has recieved in Egypt, expressing her appreciation and admiration of ancient Egyptian heritage and her respect for the friendship between the two nations.

As for whether she's ever told him to put his phone down, she said, "yes", with a laugh.

The first lady also stopped at a site where ivory burns take place - a conservationist effort meant to discourage the ivory trade.

Trump has focused on her signature issue of campaigning for children with stops at a hospital, primary school and an orphanage.

Melania also reportedly complained that she wishes people would focus on what she does rather than what she wears. She added that the tourism sector should promote Egypt as a travel destination during the visit.

It's not the first time Trump has been in the news for an outfit.

"We are having funding, so we are helping the countries, and we are working hard for helping them, and we will continue to help", she said.

"I think he's qualified for the Supreme Court", she said.
