She also visited a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade.

People on Twitter agree with Bennett's sentiment - suggesting that it's likely a result of her distance from her husband and the controversy surrounding his Supreme Court nominee.

United States First Lady Melania Trump took it in her stride when she was almost upended by a baby elephant she was feeding in Kenya.

After an outdoor book reading session, she was encircled by the same children she led up the driveway as they sang and danced some more. The internet thinks so.

Melania Trump touched down in Africa for her four-nation tour on Tuesday, and people are pleasantly surprised to see how happy she looks during her first solo global trip as the first lady.

Nana Amba Eyiaba, queen mother of Cape Coast, told the newspaper that Ghanaians were both excited and anxious about her visit.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", Mrs. Trump said later. Along with the soccer balls, the First Lady donated other Be Best items including tote bags with classroom supplies inside for the teachers, as well as Frisbees for the children. "We are happy to see you".

Back in Washington, U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted: "Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa".

Others are not convinced the White House sees Africa as "extremely important", the first lady's trip notwithstanding.

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

"The first lady is going to spend time in schools and hospitals, and that's wonderful", Brigety said.

As CNN reporter Kate Bennett tweeted, a small group of protesters - who may or may not have been Americans living near the USA embassy - held up signs with #MeToo-inspired slogans as Trump drove past.

He said Trump has alienated many Africans with his "God-awful remarks insulting the entirety of Africa in the most vile terms", reference to the president's crude referral to Haiti and some African nations as "shithole countries" that send too many immigrants to the U.S. And, Brigety noted, Trump created a political furor when he inaccurately asserted that white farmers in South Africa were subject to "large-scale killing".

"There are so many countries in Africa, but she chose to come here", the queen mother said.
