"I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court", Trump wrote.

First lady Melania Trump waves before entering the Great Pyramid as she visits the historical site of the Giza Pyramids in Giza, near Cairo, Egypt.

Trump drew some criticism for wearing a white pith helmet during a safari in Kenya because of its association with the exploitation of Africans.

"Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't", Melania continued.

The hard, brimmed helmets originated in the 19th century and were adopted by military officers in Africa, becoming a symbol of oppression in colonial times. She started her tour by arriving in Ghana earlier this week.

With that in mind, it wouldn't hurt if she stopped thinking she was the one mistreated by the people and actually made an effort to dress appropriately from time to time as to avoid such scandals. "I have my own voice and my opinions and it's very important to me that I express how I feel".

Seay did praise Trump for one item on her itinerary: a trip she took to Cape Coast castle, a former slave trading fort in Ghana.

Melania Trump urged the public to "focus on what I do, not what I wear" after getting heat for her clothing choices on her trip to Africa.

During her trip, the First Lady's focus has been on humanitarian efforts, specifically those funded by USA government aid, and those that work to better the lives of children.

The U.S. first lady hopscotched across Africa without President Donald Trump, commanding a spotlight that was hers alone.

Kavanaugh was accused by Ford in September of committing sexual and physical assault while they were both at a party in high school.

She later visited an orphanage before meeting over tea with Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta and taking in a children's dance performance at the National Theatre in Nairobi.

She was accompanied by Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled Anani and Egyptian Minister of Tourism Rania al-Mashat.

"I tell him my opinions, what I believe, and in some of them maybe we don't agree", she added.

'I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear'.

While wrapping up her first global tour as First Lady, Melania answered questions from reporters while sitting outside the pyramids in Giza, Egypt.
