US First Lady Melania Trump wrapped up her visit to Kenya on Saturday morning after spending two nights in Nairobi, the longest stay in one country during her maiden solo tour of four African countries.

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

The First Lady's visit to Africa has offered up a softer side of the Trump administration, which is facing a critical vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday.

"We need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had", she said.

US First Lady Melania Trump is on Thursday evening expected to land in Nairobi for a two-day visit to the country.

USA first lady Melania Trump arrived in Cairo on Saturday and was received by her Egyptian counterpart Entissar Amer al-Sisi, the Egyptian state TV reported.

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

She met earlier Saturday with Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

Trump on new trade deal with Canada, Mexico
Once it is officially ratified the USMCA will replace NAFTA as the trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. In a September 30 statement , the National Association of Manufacturers essentially breathed a sigh of relief.

It took Melania Trump's first big solo global trip for her to show a different side of herself - a playful, less serious one.

Trump at first decried lifting the ban, but he did not intervene in a federal agency decision to begin judging the importation of elephant trophies on a "case-by-case basis".

When a reporter asked her: "Have you ever told him to put his phone down?' she responded: 'Yes". In Kenya she saw baby elephants and visited orphanages, and in Malawi she visited schools, part of her so-called Be Best campaign, which focuses on child welfare.

Mrs Trump also visited the Kenya National Threatre where she and Mrs Kenyatta were treated to cultural performances.

Many Twitter users see a resemblance between the First Lady and Michael Jackson in his "Smooth Criminal" music video.

She was shown a pile of ashes, after the park burnt 105 tonnes of ivory to dissuade people from the trade.

Another key objective of her tour is to promote "education, healthcare, some conservation, and tourism", her spokeswoman said earlier.
