During a short Q&A near the Great Sphinx, she said she's glad that both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexual assault during their high school years, were heard.

Trump declined to say whether she believed Ford.

The US first lady tour to Africa has been part of her BE BEST initiative which focuses on improving the lives of children.

However, she told reporters of her husband Donald Trump's Twitter habits that she doesn't "always agree with what he tweets".

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY called the fight "a sorry epilogue to the brazen theft of Justice Scalia's seat". She says she adheres to a presumption of innocence, and does not believe they reached a threshold of certainty.

"We need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had", she said.

In June, the first lady prompted public outrage for wearing a jacket that said "I really don't care".

Melania Trump was also asked about any role she has advising her husband and the contrast between her words and actions and those of the president.

The first lady's wardrobe choices - including a tie she donned in Egypt today - have been dissected for what message she might be trying to send.

Apart from the interruption at JKIA, heavy traffic is expected along major roads as the US First Lady will be making her way to Nairobi.

During her one-day excursion to meet Egyptian president Abdel-Fatah al Sisi she also found time to sightsee.

The first lady received warm welcomes everywhere she went - though there were some reminders of her husband's strained relations with the continent, which he has yet to visit as president. Kate Bennett, of CNN, tweeted: "I have never seen her smile..."

Quickly, people across the globe slammed her because the hat was similar to the one used by colonial masters in Kenya.

Her meeting with Sisi and his wife, Entissar Amer, did, however, touch on the Egyptian state's "interest in enhancing the role of women in the society", according to the president's office, though without further details. She also met with U.S. embassy officials before flying to Kenya.
