US First Lady Visits Giza Pyramids in Last Africa Tour Stop

GIZA, Egypt – United States First Lady Melania Trump visited the Giza pyramids on Saturday in the last stop of her maiden, five-day Africa tour.

During the visit, Melania Trump was accompanied by the Egyptian ministers of tourism, Rania al-Mashat, and antiquities, Khaled al-Anani.

Clad in a beige blazer, a white shirt and a long, black tie, Trump started her visit in front of the 4,500-year-old Sphinx, which has a lion’s body and a human head symbolizing both strength and wisdom.

Melania listened to the secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, who explained the history behind the monument.

She then entered the Great Pyramid of Giza for a few minutes before having a chat with al-Anani.

In a subsequent press conference, she described Brett Kavanaugh, who appears poised to be confirmed Saturday as a Supreme Court justice, as “highly qualified” for the post.

She declined to comment on controversial remarks allegedly made by her husband, US President Donald Trump, regarding African and Latin American countries.

The US first lady, who arrived in Cairo on Friday night, held a nearly one-hour meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and her Egyptian counterpart, Entissar Amer, earlier in her stay.

She headed to the airport following her visit to the pyramids, which came at the end of five-day tour that started in Ghana and included stops in Malawi and Kenya and was aimed at promoting children’s welfare.
