Joshua Meservey, senior policy analyst for Africa and the Middle East at the Heritage Foundation sees Mrs. Trump's first solo overseas trip as sending "a good message to African countries that the US values its engagement with them".

"October 1 will mark the first day of my solo visit to four handsome and very different countries in Africa", Mrs. Trump said during brief remarks to several dozen guests attending the event near United Nations headquarters.

Both have been in Africa in pursuit of causes closest to their hearts. An example is the "shithole countries" comment he made.

The countries on her itinerary work closely with the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is helping organise the trip, she said. They exchanged gifts: a Chippendale silver tray embossed with an image of the White House inside a leather case signed by "First Lady Melania Trump" for Akufo-Addo, and Kente cloth and artifacts for Mrs. Trump, according to her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.

"This is her trip, her initiative", she said.

Melania Trump, an ex-fashion model, is a Slovenian-American. However, the 48-year-old first lady has been more noted for her absences during a hectic presidency in which Donald Trump is nearly omnipresent on social media, television and front pages.

U.S. first lady Melania Trump gives a speech on her initiative "Be Best" during a reception she is hosting in honor of UNGA attendees at the United States mission to the UN on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, U.S. September 26, 2018.

With little more than a month to go before the Republicans risk major losses in Congressional elections, Trump is holding rallies around the country several times a week.

When he made a heavily publicized trip last month to North and SC to assess damage from Hurricane Florence and to comfort locals, she was also missing. "Whether she chooses to use it will be another question".

The First Lady is also involved in various charities, including Martha Graham Dance Company, the Boys Club of NY, the American Red Cross, Make a Wish Foundation and the Police Athletic League.

Volcano erupts on Indonesian island hit by tsunami and natural disaster
There were no reports of any casualties or damage from the volcano. "It's possible there are more", the 39-year-old said. More than 25 countries offered assistance after Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo appealed for worldwide help.

It was June and her husband's policy of discouraging illegal immigration by separating children from their parents at the Mexican border had turned into a political firestorm.

On March 20, she met with top executives of technology companies including Amazon, Google, Twitter, Snap and Facebook, to discuss the issue and how it affects children.

No one knew what she meant.

"The one exception is when she wore that jacket". "She's really doing a great job as first lady".
