Donald Trump tweeted: "Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa".

Terminal 2 will be closed ahead of US First Lady Melania Trump's arrival on Thursday night.

On Wednesday, she visited a former slave trading fort in Ghana after arriving in Africa from Washington on Tuesday. After recovering her confidence she approached again to give a young orphan a lengthy pat, apparently absorbed by the texture of its ear.

She is also expected to visit an orphanage and take in a children's performance at Nairobi National Theatre. The people love her, and she loves them!

While in Ghana, she visited new mothers at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital and gifted them with small teddy bears and blankets labeled with the logo for her Be Best children's welfare initiative.

Melania Trump was greeted by cheerful songs and smiling children as she paid a visit to a school in Malawi, the second stop on a five-day goodwill visit to Africa.

CNN White House reporter, Kate Bennett, tweeted: "I have covered @FLOTUS [Melania Trump] for nearly two years and have never seen her smile and laugh more than she is now with these baby elephants".

Mrs Trump later announced the Africa tour during a reception she hosted for delegates of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Spokesperson for the protestors, Rachael Pope, said the Americans living in Malawi had a "take-home" message for US First Lady.

"Thank you for having me here and thank you for a attractive warm welcome", Trump told her hosts, adding that she wanted to be in Malawi to see the success of American programs here.
