Melania Trump admits she's told President Trump to 'Put his Phone Down'

First Lady Melania Trump Draws Criticism for Wearing a Pith Helmet During Tour of Africa

"Do U?" printed on the back during a June trip to the U.S. -Mexico border?

Melania Trump says she has, at times, told the president to put his phone down.

Her visit lasted only a few hours, from 11:30 a.m. until 5.00 p.m.

Mrs. Trump's outfit choices have drawn considerable attention, as when she wore a jacket that read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" during a trip to visit migrant children who'd been separated from their families at the southern border.

The criticism was not universal.

Melania Trump's outfit choice in Egypt got plenty of people talking.

Many on social media saw the helmet as a larger issue - one that serves as the growing USA sentiment that overshadows the importance of racial equality, relations and compassion in America today.

She also addressed a press conference where she spoke on a range of issues including her husband's reputation in Africa and her fashion sense. "It's exhausted and it's old and it's inaccurate", Dionne was quoted as saying.

Trump's trip, which took her to Ghana and Malawi as well, has also focused on children - one expressed goal of the trip was to highlight her "Be Best" campaign, which promotes "encouragement, kindness, compassion and respect" among kids.

After an outdoor book reading session, she was encircled by the same children she led up the driveway as they sang and danced some more. Melania Trump has fed baby elephants as she visits a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts. "It is a attractive thing to see".

Throughout her trip, Mrs Trump has seemed genuinely friendly to journalists, apparently waving at them while boarding a USA government aircraft, reports saying her demeanour seemed happier, even speaking the media about her thoughts on the Kavanaugh Supreme Court decision.

In a Facebook post on Friday, Sisi's wife welcomed Melania by saying she would arrive to her "second country, Egypt". People love it, and she loves them.

"Do you have any idea how offensive it is to wear a pith helmet in Kenya or anywhere else across the region?" wrote Twitter user Joost_fontein in response to a video the First Lady posted of the excursion. She emerged without a smudge.

Pairing tanned riding trousers with a simple white collared shirt, the first lady topped off her outfit with colonial-era headwear - a white pith helmet, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Her trip was also not without fashion controversies.

But Trump's seemingly small decision to wear the helmet appeared to show a similarly limited understanding of the places she's been this week, argued Dionne, the political science professor.
