Melania Trump to visit Africa - Daily Nation

The US First Lady Melania Trump is set to visit Africa for the first time.

"I look forward to highlighting the successful humanitarian work and development programs being done in numerous countries", Trump said in a statement. She recently launched a US -based effort focused on the well-being of children.

Her visit comes months after Trump sparked global controversies in January about his alleged "shithole" statement, claiming the USA was being flooded by immigrants from Africa and elsewhere.

The FLOTUS also said that the visit would afford her the opportunity to learn about Africa's rich culture and history.

Melania Trump indicated a gentler approach, saying "we are a global society and I believe it is through open dialogue and the exchanging of ideas that we have a real opportunity to learn from one another". The first lady's speech, which highlighted her Be Best campaign, was targeting harmful online behavior. Those programs include investments by the U.S.in children's health and education, Grisham said.

Trump previously traveled solo to Canada and has made several trips with her husband.

Her only solo worldwide trip was in September 2017 when she flew to Toronto for a day and joined Britain's Prince Harry for an Olympic-style athletic competition he established for wounded service members and veterans.

Mrs. Trump has accompanied the president to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey, Brussels, France, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom and Finland, for his recent summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
