Smiling for the cameras in the shadow of the pyramids, First Lady Melania Trump wrapped up her four nation Africa tour in Egypt on Saturday, far from the political tumult back home.

In rare comments to the press, Trump said her trip — which also took in Ghana, Malawi and Kenya — was designed to “show the world that we care”.

Asked about reports earlier this year that her husband President Donald Trump referred to African nations and Haiti as “shithole countries”, the First Lady said “nobody discussed that with me and I never heard him saying those comments”. (AFP)
