Melania Trump greeted in Malawi with signs protesting her husband

She opened the Kenya portion of her visit earlier Friday by feeding baby elephants at Nairobi National Park and going on a safari.

Following her visit to the children's home, Melania quickly changed outfits - switching her safari-style ensemble for a billowing green and white striped dress - before meeting Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta at the State House in Nairobi.

Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta accompanied Trump on the safari, and the pair is expected to take in a traditional performance later Friday.

Mrs Trump's visit to Africa, organised by USAID, is part of her "Be Best" campaign, which aims to improve child welfare, especially when it comes to online behaviour and addiction to opioids.

Her stepsons have also been criticised for their passion for hunting.

Florian Grillitsch is looking to become the first ever Austrian player to score in his first two Champions League appearances. Both Manchester City and Juventus secured victories in the early UEFA Champions League kick offs on Tuesday evening.

"That's another book? You have great taste", Melania was heard telling the young boy who was reading the story to the audience.

At one point inside the park, Melania Trump laughed as she was pushed back by a playful baby elephant. "I saw pix [SIC] of her earlier in the day with the colonial look going strong - white blouse and khaki trousers - but to add *that hat*... she may as well have worn an upturned middle finger on her forehead".

The first Lady snaps a selfie while being guided around the park. "It is a attractive thing to see", the president said.

The first lady is apparent ticking off a list of things clueless visitors do while in Africa, inspiring a #FlotusinAfricabingo hashtag.

Kenya was the third stop on Mrs Trump's African tour, which began on Tuesday in Ghana and continued in Malawi on Thursday. "I was heartened to spend time with the students, and was honored to donate school supplies and soccer balls", she said.

The Academy Award-winning star of the movie seemed awfully proud of her super self, tweeting "Look Mom, I'm a superhero". We saw her kicking ass as a fighter pilot in the Air Force .

Hours before Washington woke up, critics were pointing out how Trump - who is here representing a husband widely reported to have disparaged African nations as "shitholes" - had fumbled this segment of her visit.

The First Lady fed an elephant and met with national park workers. She bent down and scooped up some of the burned ivory, rubbing it lightly in her hands, finding herself once again at odds with her husband as the cameras caught her every movement.

Trump had decried lifting the ban as a "horror show", but he did not intervene after the agency announced that the importation of elephant trophies will be approved on a "case-by-case basis".

Egypt marked her final stop on her tour of the continent which focuses on child welfare, education, tourism and conservation.
