Melania Trump criticized for wearing white pith helmet in Kenya during safari

A hat that the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, wore during her visit to Kenya has caused worldwide uproar due to its perceived symbolism.

"I am honored to receive the honorable lady, wife of the United States president, tomorrow in Cairo, and I wish her a successful and happy visit to her second country, Egypt", the president's wife wrote on Facebook.

The U.S. first lady said the message of her tour to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt was to show the world that "we care".

The trip, which had been in the works for months, provided a welcome escape from the ugly political battle in the US capital over Brett Kavanaugh, the president's Supreme Court nominee.

Mrs Trump praised the reception and hospitality she has recieved in Egypt, expressing her appreciation and admiration of ancient Egyptian heritage and her respect for the friendship between the two nations.

The First Lady wraps up her 7 day trip to Africa and will be returning to Washington on Sunday. Later, as she toured the Pyramids and Great Sphinx in Giza, she added a straw hat to the look.
