Melania Trump visits Africa

Melania Trump got a different view of educating children as she visited an African primary school in Lilongwe, Malawi, Thursday that has benefited from U.S. assistance but struggles with an enrollment of more than 8,500 students. Some children learn lessons outdoors, where they sit shoulder-to-shoulder on loose, red dirt.The first lady highlighted USAID’s work in Africa, but the Trump administration has been trying to cut the agency’s funding. In its first two budget proposals, the administration sought to slash funding for the State Department and USAID by roughly 30 percent. Widespread bipartisan opposition to the steep reductions in Congress, where the budget proposals were essentially ignored, foiled the administration’s plans.Mrs. Trump opened her first extended solo international trip on Tuesday in Ghana. The remaining stops on her tour are Kenya and Egypt. (AP)See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr.
