First Lady Melania Trump was received with presidential honors in Ghana on the second day of her four-country trip through Africa. From there, she moved on to Malawi where she is today.

Yesterday, paid her respects at the slave fortress in Ghana where she laid a wreath inside the 17th-century building. On behalf of the US, she vowed never to forget where Africans were held before being shipped away into further hardship, most across the Atlantic.

Ghana was the first stop on her first major solo international trip as the US’s first lady, which has gone by without a hiccup so far.

After visiting the castle, Ms Trump stated: "It's very emotional… I will never forget (the) incredible experience and the stories that I heard. It's really, really touching. The dungeons that I saw, it's really something that people should see and experience, and what happened so many years ago - it's really a tragedy."

On social media, FLOTUS wrote: “Day two in Ghana was so impactful. My visit to Cape Coast castle was a solemn reminder of a time in our history that should never be forgotten. Thank you to Chief Osabarima Kwesi Atta & the chieftains for the warm welcome & cultural ceremony.”

Ms Trump also visited the palace of the head chief of the area and obtained his royal approval to visit the fortress, though only after US officials had presented a gift of drinks to the chiefs, as is customary.

About her arrival in Africa the day before, FLOTUS stated: “Thank you Ghana! The arrival ceremony, visit to Ridge Hospital, tea at the Jubilee House & meeting the hard workers at the U.S. Embassy made for an amazing first day. Thank you to the people of Ghana for such a memorable visit.”

As always, Ms Trump was impeccably dressed, wearing a pair of beige pants, a military jacket by designer Veronica Beard and a pair of simple Zara faux-snakeskin loafers for her visit to the castle.

She is graceful. M. Obama was a stumbling embarrassment.

Trump sends in Melania to hug some savages while his negotiation team one-ups the China / Russia economic and military base proposals. the fight for Africa is ON…. but watch out, Muslim nuts are converting the savages by the millions and want nothing to do with Americas or especially their jew masters in Israel.
