Another sign read, "69 Days Past the Deadline to Reunite Families", in reference to Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy.

Mrs. Trump opened the trip Tuesday in Ghana.

"What an wonderful experience".

Kenya, the home of Obama's father, is also one of the world's biggest fans of the Trump administration, according to a report by the Pew Research Centre on America's global image. Before departing the school, Mrs. Trump stopped in the schoolyard to watch students play soccer with a few of the soccer balls that she donated.

On Friday, she visited The Nest in Nairobi, an orphanage, where she danced with the children.

Melania and her host are expected to head to State House for talks before going to the Kenya National Theatre where they will be treated to Kenyan creative cultural performances.

"Thank you for having me here and thank you for a handsome warm welcome", Trump told her hosts, adding that she wanted to be in Malawi to see the success of American programs here.

All the classrooms were outdoors, with the young students sitting shoulder to shoulder in rows on the loose red dirt in their blue uniforms, girls in dresses with red collars and boys in collared shirts and shorts. Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome all of you. "We are happy to see you".

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

Trump's good-will tour was not completely without controversy. Chipala has more than 8,500 students but just 77 teachers, for a ratio of 111 students per instructor, according to the US government.

"The growth and success of a country starts with educating our children", said First Lady Melania Trump. Lawmakers essentially ignored those requests.

"She's shining a light on some of the great things the doing in Malawi and Africa".

She later fed the elephant with milk accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta who also touched and admired the Jumbo.

Her first-ever visit to Africa is also her first extended solo worldwide trip as first lady in what some see as "fence-mending".

During Trump's tour, she is focusing on child welfare.
