Melania Trump arrives in Ghana today

Melania Trump, the United States First Lady is expected in Ghana today, October 1, as she kick starts a four-nation African tour.

The one-week trip, which begins today, will take her to a part of the world that has a tense relationship with her husband’s administration.

“Whether it is education, drug addiction, hunger, online safety or bullying, poverty or disease, it is too often children who are hit first, and hardest, across the globe,” Trump said at a reception at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, where she announced her travel plans. “Each of us hails from a country with its own unique challenges, but I know in my heart we are united by our commitment to raising the next generation to be happy, healthy and morally responsible adults.”

The audience included the first ladies of several of the countries she will visit, along with Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Pence, and Susan Pompeo, the wife of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Trump said she chose those four countries because they “have worked alongside USAID and our partners to make great progress in overcoming some of their biggest challenges.”

What Melania said about Ghana

I’d like to take a moment and thank the First Lady of Ghana for being with us today. Mrs. Akufo-Addo, I look forward to visiting your country and know we will find ways to continue working together even after my visit. 

In Ghana, USAID’s programs have focused on healthcare by supporting efforts to expand the coverage and quality of healthcare for mothers and newborns, and educating women and young children about the importance of proper nutrition.
