CAIRO: US First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Egypt on Saturday on the final leg of a solo four-nation tour of Africa that will see her visit the Pyramids. Remember that time when she wore an olive-green army jacket with the words, "I don't really care".

Melania was due to meet President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, Egypt's First Lady, Entissar El-Sisi, and tour the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx, her spokeswoman said.

After visiting a national park, where she was nudged by an orphaned baby elephant, the first lady visited the Nest, a children's home about 20 miles outside the Kenyan capital.

"I don't always agree with his tweets, and I tell him that and give him my honest opinion and honest advice", she said.

Trump's trip, which took her to Ghana and Malawi as well, has also focused on children - one expressed objective of the trip was to promote her "Be Best" campaign, which promotes "encouragement, kindness, compassion and respect" among kids.

"If we're talking about the Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh, I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court", she said.

Kavanaugh, who denies the allegation, is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as a Supreme Court justice this weekend.

Standing in front of the Sphinx, Mrs. Trump said she makes her opinions clear with her husband.

"She was comfortably stowed in the back seat of a Toyota Land Cruiser; however, the helmet is largely used as more of a sun hat", he added.

The former model stepped off the plane at Cairo worldwide airport wearing high-waisted white trousers, a pleated white shirt and a dark tie with a beige jacket slung over her shoulders.

Twitter users lit up, asking: "why is she dressed like Colonel Sanders going on an archaeology trip", and another joked she was auditioning for a new job.

It was the second time in as many days that the first lady promoted policies out of step with her husband's.

Trump launched her BE BEST campaign "with the goal of combatting some of the issues children face today by shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children the tools and skills needed for emotional, social and physical well-being".
