JKIA terminal to be closed down for Melania Trump's arrival today

JKIA's Terminal 1c

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi welcomed on Saturday US's First Lady Melania Trump at Ittihadiya Presidential Palace, as she embarks on her first visit to Egypt as part of her Africa tour.

During her whistlestop five-hour stay, the US First Lady was scheduled to visit the Pyramids of Giza and the new National Museum under construction next door.

The first lady also would not say if she believed Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh.

'I don't always agree with what he tweets, and I tell him that, ' she said. "Sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn't, but I have my own voice and my own opinions and it's very important that I express what I feel", she said, adding that it is her husband, not her, in elective office.

She continued: 'And I tell him that.

But to some - especially those who study African history - her fashion choice in Kenya was still a big error on the global stage: the sight of a first lady wearing something so closely associated with the exploitation of Africans.

His confirmation would give the US president a clear win in his drive to cement conservative dominance of the high court.

Mrs Trump's visit to Kenya was the third stop on her Africa tour, which began on Tuesday in Ghana.

She will visit Egypt as her last stop. Kate Bennett, of CNN, tweeted: "I have never seen her smile..."

Another key goal of her tour is to promote "education, healthcare, some conservation, and tourism", her spokeswoman said earlier.

The controversial wardrobe choice was interpreted to mean that the First Lady was out of touch with African history.

Military guards stood to attention as Sisi and his wife greeted Trump at the front door.

Music accompanied by the beat of drums greeted her arrival at an orphanage in Nairobi, where a group of children dressed in bright yellow T-shirts and patterned bottoms escorted her up a driveway to the building.

During their discussions at State House, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta gave the US First Lady a copy of Beyond Zero's strategic framework for 2018-2022 which she launched earlier in the year. "That we care and we want to show the world we care".

President Donald Trump has not visited Africa since taking office in 2017.
