  • Melania Trump visits Malawi school on solo Africa tour

ABC News says its reporter Tom Llamas will interview Melania Trump during her trip to Africa for a "20/20" special to air October 12.

Nairobi motorists should brace themselves for a day of heavy traffic as US First Lady Melania Trump tours the city.

A quick safari is planned for later as Mrs Trump learns more about steps the East African nation is taking to conserve elephants, rhinos and other wildlife.

Melania Trump took part in a baby elephant feeding on Friday as she visited a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", Melania said during her visit. Lawmakers essentially ignored those requests.

She is on her first solo tour of Africa.

Many past American first ladies have also made trips to the African continent, including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.

Melani then made a stop over in Malawi on Thursday, October 4, where she visited a number of primary schools benefiting from USA assistance and handed over another 1.4 million books through an American funded national reading program.

NY Times throws writer Emily Bazelon 'under the bus' over Kavanaugh story
The man noticed Ludington, Kavanaugh and the others looking at him and - according to Ludington - aggressively asked them to stop. They looked around and asked questions, he said, and then Dudley was put in a squad auto and taken to jail.

And two other white people had a "welcome to Malawi # notashithole!" sign.

One said #MELANIATOO, with the "ME" in bold black.

The White House said Malawi was chosen because of the high poverty rate and the difficulties children-especially girls-have in accessing education.

Another read "69 Days Past the Deadline to Reunite Families", apparently referring to the Trump administration's controversial zero-tolerance immigration policy, which led to the separations of thousands of families on the [which-which] border earlier this year.

The US First Lady is now in Malawi on a tour focusing on promotion children's welfare.

Another key objective of her tour is to promote "education, healthcare, some conservation, and tourism".

Protest: A couple held a sign that said 'Welcome to Malawi.
