Africans love US Great First Lady

US First Lady Melania Trump toured a primary school in Malawi on the second leg of her solo tour of Africa

Despite the protests, President Trump praised Melania for her five-day solo tour of Africa, saying: "Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa". Lawmakers essentially ignored those requests.

The first lady landed at Lilongwe International Airport in Malawi on Thursday following a six-hour flight from Ghana, and was met by Gertrude Mutharika, Malawi's first lady.

Trump greeted two administrators as she arrived at the school with Virginia Palmer, the US ambassador to Malawi. Malawi's education minister said the partnership had "significantly" improved student literacy.

"Our message is that Melania Trump should return home to persuade President Trump to reverse the serious budget cuts his administration has proposed concerning poor countries like Malawi". Widespread bipartisan opposition in Congress averted the reductions.

Commenting on the visit, Melania said: "I wanted to be here to see the successful programs the United States is providing the children and thank you for everything you've done".

She had just finished touring several outdoor classrooms.

The school is struggling with only 75 teachers looking after around 8,000 enrolled children.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", Trump said. Her own 12-year-old son attends a private school in Maryland.

At the airport, schoolchildren showed up to welcome Melania. In southern Africa, the vocalization is often done as a celebratory welcome by women. "It is a attractive thing to see", wrote Trump.

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.

At one point, a teacher led the students in a song in English: "We say goodbye but not forever". Another said "Welcome to Malawi".
