Mrs. Trump opened her first extended worldwide tour as first lady on Tuesday in the West African nation of Ghana.

Trump left the country after five-hours visit and headed to Kenya and she will also visit Egypt having visited Ghana. She approached a crowd of children in royal-blue-and-orange school uniforms who sang in English, "Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome all of you".

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

At the primary school, the first lady watched dozens of pupils sitting on the ground in the sun as a teacher taught on a blackboard on the side of a building.

Her first-ever visit to Africa is also her first extended solo worldwide trip as First Lady.

"We see, first hand, in Malawian hospitals, the shocking effect the budget cuts may ultimately have".


The first lady was greeted by students with a song, Fox News reported: "We are happy today to see you. I know she's moved by what the United States is doing in Malawi", US Ambassador Virginia Palmer told reporters.

Trump also had tea with Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, at the presidential palace.

The first lady later left Malawi for Kenya.

"Mrs Trump will then head to State House for talks and later to the Kenya National Theatre where they will be treated to Kenyan Creative Cultural Performances", it said.

The event was meant to "highlight friendly U.S. -Malawi relations" and the pair's "shared interest in helping children and, in particular, helping girls in school", according to the White House.
