Melania Trump feeds baby elephants as Kenya visit begins
Oct 06 2018
The United States First Lady Melania Trump was on Friday, October 5, at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, and either her or the baby elephants were excited to see each other.
The US First Lady will then visit the US Embassy in Nairobi wrapping up the only closed-door engagements on her Kenyan visit.
Spokesperson for the protestors, Rachael Pope, said the Americans living in Malawi had a "take-home" message for US First Lady.
One of the protestors told The Maravi Post that Trump's wife visit to Malawi will make a difference to her husband decision over African countries health well-fare. She has posed for photos with babies and children, often murmuring the same things at each stop - "Beautiful!" and "Hi, guys!" - while holding their hands or waving at the cameras.
"That's another book? You have great taste", Melania was heard telling the young boy who was reading the story to the audience.
While petting of the baby elephants, a calf run in her direction apparently startled by her touch - momentarily unsettling her.
The US first lady also went on a quick safari.
The First Lady's offensive headwear choice comes just months after her explosive, "I really don't care do u?" jacket. "I was heartened to spend time with the students, and was honored to donate school supplies and soccer balls", she said.
She also stopped at a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade.
Previous year he appeared to refer to a non-existent country called "Nambia" in a speech to ambassadors from the continent.
The Trump administration recently chose to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport.
Trump at first decried lifting the ban, but he did not intervene in a federal agency decision to begin judging the importation of elephant trophies on a "case-by-case basis".
Egypt is the final stop on a four-nation tour of the continent to highlight child welfare, education and tourism and conservation.
