It also portrays Trump as a first lady who is passionate about serious issues. She will head to Kenya, Malawi and wrap up the visit in Egypt. She also saw how vitamins are administered to babies and toured a neonatal intensive care unit. The news outlet also claimed the First Lady accepted a bouquet from a young girl.

Mrs Trump announced her tour of Africa at a reception for spouses of world leaders, held on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, in NY.

Mrs Melania Trump also donated a photo therapy machine to the hospital, which will be used to treat jaundice.

On arrival at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, she was received by the country's First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

The White House at the time denied he had made the comments.

"Congratulations", the first lady said as she handed a blanket and teddy bear to a mother breastfeeding her child. The tray was carried in a leather case bearing the first lady's signature.

Trump's trip did not generate the same fanfare.

She is expected to emphasize the health and education of children as part of her "Be Best" platform that she launched in May.

The first lady's office has said the tour will be a "diplomatic and humanitarian visit" that will focus on her #BeBest campaign for "children and their well-being".

Meservey told VOA, "I think the U.S. -Africa relationship is much bigger than the president's comments".

And she seems particularly happy when she's a continent apart as evidenced by these pics of her interacting with African children in Ghana.
