After Donald Trump's derogatory comment, his wife Melania visits Africa

The 48-year-old, who is now on the second official day of her Africa tour, stepped out wearing a Veronica Beard design that she first modeled back in September 2017 during a trip to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland with her husband. Then-President Barack Obama and his family toured the castle in 2009.

Before proceeding to the slave castle, she visited the palace of the head chief of the area and obtained royal approval to visit the fortress after US officials presented a gift of drinks to the chiefs.

The US first lady on Wednesday was touring Cape Coast Castle.

Mrs. Trump says she expects the visit to be "very emotional". "The dungeons that I saw, it's really something that people should see and experience", she said after she was asked to reflect on the visit. The first lady laid a wreath and signed a guestbook at the castle, where she told reporters she wrote "thank you for your warm welcome".

The first lady's visit was a lower-key affair than Obama's visit as the first black USA president, and reminders of his visit with wife Michelle were prominent.

Mrs. Trump replied that she was "very honored" to be there, accepting a gift of Kente cloth and slippers as a remembrance of the trip.

"Her trip will focus on maternal and newborn care in hospitals, education for children, the deep culture and history woven into each African country, and how the United States is supporting each country on its journey to self-reliance", the White House said before she left.

Melania Trump has made advocating for children her signature issue since becoming first lady.

The first lady's visit to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt has been seen as an attempt to carve her own path and emerge from her husband's shadow and his divisive presidency.

Though she arrived clad in her signature stilettos for the event, she later swapped her shoes for more practical flats as she toured the castle; she pulled the same stiletto-swap yesterday while visiting the maternity ward of a hospital.
