First Lady Melania Trump Arrives in Ghana…

First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Ghana on Tuesday morning (October 2nd) after a 12-hour flight from Washington, D.C. This is the first stop on a four nation visit within Africa.

Day one in the capital of Accra, Ghana was spent visiting a local hospital to learn more about local welfare initiatives for children, while also getting the chance to promote her Be Best initiative. According to pool reports the first lady then enjoyed afternoon tea with her Ghanaian counterpart at the presidential palace in Accra.

Mrs. Trump is expected to visit Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt following her trip to Ghana. The purpose of her visit is to understand many of the USAID programs, the ongoing humanitarian efforts in the region, and those that work to better the lives of children.

Another key purpose of her tour is to promote ‘education, healthcare, and regional tourism’. Africa is a target of key Chinese investment and has become more of a geopolitical focus in the past several years. The first lady is expected to return to Washington, D.c. on October 7th.

      • Speculation: It will surface in 2019 once President Trump has closed Trade Deals with Japan, EU, Brazil and India, and begins to ratchet up the collective leverage on China … leaving African nations a stark choice: Chinese Colonization (Racketeering with the Rogue-State Cabal to plunder their resources and subsume their infrastructure) vs Free-Fair-Reciprocal Trade with 75% of World Markets.

    Of course, she is dressed perfectly for the occasion – as always. She does not feel the need to adopt the wardrobe of the culture she is visiting, yet manages to incorporate a suitable fashion in her own style that compliments the people she is visiting.

      That struck me immediately. At first instant I thought it was regional garb but then realized no, it simply has a geometric print that suggests the regional style. Brilliant.

      That is much better said than what I’d said in the daily thread. It was a very good choice even if I personally don’t like stripes. She looked relaxed and comfortable in it and changed out of her heels in some rough ground.

      Our FLOTUS is both beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside! She absolutely loves children. I was not surprised by the cute baby boy’s reaction while being held by our FLOTUS. The baby had the biggest smile 😊 in the world. Children know they are around an angel and they are able to show it through their expressions.

          that dear little guy in Texas last year that just seemed to glom onto our President, as if that was HIS dad (or grand-dad) . . . and that dear lady who said to him that whenever she sees him on tv, she says a prayer for him . . . Melania was totally glowing, so happy I think that people were lovin’ on him, giving back the love that they see in his heart.

        At the beginning with the first baby you could tell she just wanted to hold and give her love to the darling, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

        So I was really happy to see the boy wanting to be picked up, I know it made both of their days. So sweet.

        It’s a heck of an ice breaker too. Moms all over the world can tell if a person is being sincere when it comes to their child. It doesn’t hurt with all of the other ladies standing around watching, I’m sure most of them are Moms at home too.

        Our Melania won those women over just by her being herself. What a great teaching moment to our young ones who look up to her. Be yourself always, it’s how you win hearts when your heart is true. Be best.

        I have so much respect for our FLOTUS, more respect than anyone I’ve known before her in this title. She is the epitome of what a First Lady should be.
        Be well,
        Ma’iingankwe

    I wish she wouldn’t do this. Africa should be quarantined and left to it’s own destiny.
    Which is Death with a capital D. Always has been, always will be. The only thing I care about in Africa are the animals, and some of them could be transplanted.

      Africa needs non-corrupt leaders. And frankly, it needs non-corrupt aid agencies. The Clintons were crude pikers in Haiti compared to the way Europeans rob African aid.

      Having said that, much of the African corruption is cultural. We have inherited a 2800 year history and tradition of the Roman Rule of Law and its descendants. This was imposed on Africa to its and our benefit under colonialism, but it did not take root in the culture, and was often thrown out with the bad aspects of colonialism.

      When your obligations to distant relatives are stronger than your obligation to some rules imposed on you by some non-relative, your actions will look corrupt from the aspect of those who make and live by the rules.

      Unfortunately, these behaviors inhibit and suppress the great gains our society has made via a rule of law.

      And it will hurt us too, if we keep destroying people without the benefit of the doubt and the exercise of just laws like is happening with #metoo and Kavanaugh.

        Exactly that.

        Around the time of the sh1t-hole controversy, someone commented on this forum about their experience in Africa, saying that aid resources – including medical supplies – would simply be plundered by the locals.

        Their societal mindset is allegiance to their family above all other considerations. The explanation would be “I take this for my family”.

    At the one minute mark, when Melania held the baby, it was easy to tell that the child knew Melania’s spirit of love. Children (and especially babies) know when they are loved. It is not possible to fool a baby.

    The Wife of Noble Character

    A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

    She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

    She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

    She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

    When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

    Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

    She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.

    She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

    Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”

    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

    Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    (Proverbs 31 epilogue)

    Dearest Heavenly Father, Please watch over, protect, guide, comfort and support Your daughter, sweet Melania, as she travels and does Your work, through her role as FLOTUS. In Jesus Name we pray.

    It is gratifying that FLOTUS has decided to promote good healthcare across Africa. As a former beauty queen, wife of a billionaire as well as wife of POTUS it would be difficult to imagine what health centers in Africa are like from an a office at the Whitehouse; her visit would afford her the opportunity to speak to stakeholders right in Africa. She has got the power and influence much needed to push healthcare issues across the globe. I hope it goes well.
