Vox Examines Melania Trump’s Africa Tour, Promotion Of USAID Programs, Administration’s Shifting Views On Foreign Aid

Vox: Melania’s trip to Africa says a lot about U.S. foreign policy under Trump
“First lady Melania Trump has wrapped up her first solo trip to Africa, where she made stops in Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt … The point of Trump’s tour was to highlight all the ways U.S. foreign aid is helping children in the developing world. … Melania Trump was promoting a more humanitarian-focused U.S. foreign policy at a time when her husband is trying to scale it back. And her trip was specifically focused on the effectiveness of USAID and its impact on children…” (Campbell, 10/9).
