First Lady Melania Trump shared tea with her counterpart Tuesday in Ghana as she embarked on the first leg of her five-day solo trip to the African continent.
Trump was greeted in the capital Accra by dancers, drummers and school children waving Ghanaian and American flags and received a bouquet of flowers wrapped in kente cloth from an 8-year-old girl, according to pool reports.
She met the country’s first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, and exchanged gifts before having tea at the Jubilee House, Ghana’s presidential palace.
Trump also visited a baby clinic where she saw babies getting weighed as part of a nutritional program and distributed teddy bears wrapped in baby blankets.
She is expected to emphasize the health and education of children as part of her “Be Best” platform that she launched in May.
Other stops on Trump’s schedule include Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.
Her son, Barron, did not accompany her on the trip.
