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

She also had on a tan fedora and black tie. "I'm glad Judge Kavanaugh was heard, that the FBI investigation was done, completed, and that the Senate voted", Trump said in Cairo.
During her trip, the first lady's focus has been on humanitarian efforts, specifically those funded by United States government aid, and those that work to better the lives of children.
Trump - wearing another white hat - used the symbolic backdrop as a moment to discuss her six-day trip to Africa, including whether any of her hosts had brought up the disparaging comments her husband has reportedly made about African countries.
Meanwhile in a press conference in Cairo, the US First lady told reporters she wishes people would focus on what she does, not on what she wears. Prof Amutabi says there was, since President Trump has not visited the continent and rarely mentions Africa in his speeches, notwithstanding the White House visits by presidents Abdel Fattah el-Sisi (Egypt), Muhammadu Buhari (Nigeria) and Uhuru Kenyatta (Kenya).

Republican plans to confirm Kavanaugh could still be slightly complicated by the personal life of Montana Republican Sen. Ms Ramirez said the nominee had exposed himself to her when they were both at Yale University, which he also denies.
The stylish former model also said she did not always agree with her husband´s tweets and shared her opinions with him directly, even though he did not always follow her advice.
The First Lady was talking in Egpyt at the end of a tour of Africa during which she has been viewing American aid projects and talking to African leaders.
Speaking near the Sphinx, Trump said that the message of her trip has been to show "that we care".
