Melania Trump has told her husband to put the phone down

Melania Trump was likened to a colonial administrator

On his sharp words on Twitter: "I don't always agree with his tweets and I tell him that".

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

A reporter then asked if she ever asked her husband to "put down his phone".

While on a solo trip in Egypt, Melania was asked about Trump's online rants.

Over in Kenya, she visited an elephant orphanage where she fed baby elephants and was given a gift of one them.

She closed her tour in Egypt by touring the pyramids and the Great Sphinx to highlight US -backed preservation efforts there.

In an official statement, Egyptian Presidency Spokesman Bassam Rady said El-Sisi expressed to Mrs Trump Egypt's keeness on boosting and supporting the special strategic partnership between the two countries.

Even before the pith helmet, Seay had started a hashtag - #FLOTUSInAfricaBingo - to note the ways in which she found that Trump was "fulfilling a lot of stereotypes" on her trip.

Melania Trump, in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.

The helmet, often seen for years in movies set in African nations like Indiana Jones and any number of the James Bond films is an enduring symbol of European, particularly British and French, colonialism.

This isn't the first time Trump's style has caused controversy.

"I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear", she said, before posing for pictures in front of some of Egypt's greatest landmarks.

Matt Carotenuto, a historian and coordinator of African Studies at St. Lawrence University, commented that there was no need to wear a helmet on the type of safari she was taking.

When she visited David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi National Park ready to bottle-feed orphaned baby elephants, Mrs Trump wore a white pith hat, riding pants and boots similar to those worn by European colonial masters.

No one can say, first lady, Melania Trump doesn't understand the power of an image. Trump's adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are trophy hunters.
