The U.S. first lady also went on a quick safari.

Trump is in Africa on a four-nation tour, with plans to visit Egypt this weekend after stops in Ghana, Malawi and Kenya.

It didn't take long for the typically reserved USA first lady to dive fully into the moment.

In a notice, the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said the terminal will be out of bounds to the public from Thursday 5:30pm to 9:00pm, when Mrs Trump will land in Kenya. A group of children who live at the orphanage and had been waiting for their American visitor broke into song and dance. There she led a line of children singing to traditional music.

The first lady was similarly immersed in the moment earlier at Nairobi National Park, where she had gone early Friday to highlight elephant conservation.

This is not the first time Trump has come under fire for her outfit.

What this means is that effectively, the prices of petrol and diesel will come down immediately by Rs 2.5 per litre. HPCL shares fell 14.7% to Rs 214.40, BPCL was down 17.08% at Rs 313 and Indian Oil dived 14.23% to Rs 134.95.

As for whether she's ever told him to put his phone down, she said, "yes", with a laugh.

Melania also commented on the supreme court confirmation battle. (In March, NPR's Colin Dwyer reported that the Trump administration lifted a ban on elephant trophy imports).

She said: 'That's very important what I do, what we're doing with U.S. aid and what I do with my initiatives and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear'.

President Trump in an Oval Office meeting in January grew frustrated at a proposed bipartisan immigration plan and asked those in the room why they would want people from Haiti, Africa and other "s--hole countries" coming into the United States, according to multiple sources either briefed on or familiar with the discussion. Trump has twice tried unsuccessfully to slash USAID's budget by a third.

While visiting the Nairobi National Park in Kenya, she was seen touring in an open-air vehicle, taking photos on her iPhone of zebras, giraffes, impalas, rhinos and hippos and feeding baby elephants. Some commentators said she had made a mistake by wearing a white pith helmet, a hat favoured by 19th century European colonialists, because of its association with the exploitation of Africans.
