"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", Rachel Pope, a doctor and social justice advocate, told the local Nyasa Times.

She opened the Kenya portion of her visit earlier Friday by feeding baby elephants at Nairobi National Park and going on a safari.

The first ladies are expected to walk through the gardens and watch a traditional dance performance. Trump, a former model who is poised and hypersensitive to the criticism she receives for putting one toe out of place, wore a pristine white shirt to see the elephants.

Mrs Trump opened the trip on Tuesday in Ghana and then went to Malawi.

She kicked off her busy schedule on Friday morning, with a visit to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is considered the world's most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation Centre.

The national park is where 105 tonnes of ivory have been burned to discourage the trade.

"Thank you for what you do and taking care of them", Trump told the orphanage's staff after learning more about the facility and the circumstances that brought numerous young children and babies to it. She was treated to a welcoming ceremony and met children and their carers at a nearby child health facility.

"They are simply taking advantage of their First Lady's high profile visit in Malawi to speak out so that the media here takes their message along as well", he said. She later traveled to Malawi where she took in a school lesson with children. The soccer balls as well as tote bags donated for the teachers bore the logo of "Be Best", the child well-being initiative she launched earlier this year and is promoting on the trip. To say her visit didn't get off to a warm start would be an understatement.

Hours before Washington woke up, critics were pointing out how Trump - who is here representing a husband widely reported to have disparaged African nations as "shitholes" - had fumbled this segment of her visit.

Mrs. Kenyatta, I look forward to visiting your country and know that together, we will be able to do great things on behalf of children.
