Melania Trump Concludes Her Solo Tour in Africa



Melania Trump generously dished out warm smiles and happy waves as the first lady used her solo four-nation tour of Africa to show that “we care,” referring to the United States under the Trump administration, and that the United States is continuing to support international aid programs to help developing countries on their path to self-reliance.


The first lady answered negative questions from the media about her husband and whether she agreed with his leadership style, to which she replied: “I don’t always agree with what he says and I tell him that. But I have my own voice and my own opinions and it’s very important for me that I express what I feel.”

Reporters also asked her opinion about Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and she said he was “highly qualified” to join the court. Mrs. Trump declined to venture an opinion on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, but said that “we need to help all victims, no matter what kind of abuse” they experienced.

On her grueling five-day tour across multiple time zones, the first lady was seen dancing, cuddling babies and bottle-fed young elephants.

Always under a microscope, media reported that the first lady had been criticised on social media for the white pith helmet that she wore with her safari ensemble in Kenya—viewed by some as a symbol of Kenya’s colonial past and its one-time domination by the British.


When asked about that, the former model said: “I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.”

The first lady opened the trip in Ghana, where she went to an infant clinic and learned how local babies are weighed—in slings that are hooked to a scale. It was at Greater Accra Regional Hospital that she was photographed holding a chubby baby boy, with photos of the moment spreading widely on social media.

Russian: President Putin eases access to citizenship for east Ukraine residents.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an order simplifying the procedure for obtaining a Russian passport for residents of the rebel-controlled Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine, the Kremlin said on Wednesday.

Separatist rebellions broke out against Ukrainian rule in both regions in 2014. Moscow provided military help for the separatists, according to evidence gathered by Reuters, though Russian officials have denied providing material support.

Large swathes of the two regions are now under the de facto control of the Moscow-backed rebels, while Kiev says it is determined to re-assert its control, a position backed by most Western countries.

There was no immediate reaction from Kiev to Putin’s order. Ukrainian officials are likely to react angrily to any indication Moscow is drawing the rebel regions closer into its own orbit.
