U.S. First Lady Melania Trump has arrived in Ghana’s capital Accra, on Tuesday for her first solo international trip in Africa, during which she will visit child health facilities, orphanages and meet caregivers.
The stop is Trump’s first on a four-country tour that will include visits to Kenya, Malawi and Egypt.
She was welcomed with dancing and drumming and school children waving mini U.S. and Ghanaian flags. Ghana’s first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, welcomed her American counterpart. Mrs. Trump also accepted a bouquet of flowers from an 8-year-old girl before walking along a red carpet into an airport lounge for a brief meeting with Akufo-Addo.
