The American First Lady, Melania Trump on Tuesday arrived in the Ghana's capital, Accra, to begin her four-nation African tour.
There to receive her was Ghana's First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. She toured wings of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, including an older part of the hospital and a newer facility, and passed out teddy bears wrapped in blankets. The items carried the logo of "Be Best", the child well-being initiative Mrs. Trump launched last May.
There's an overall sense of skepticism that exists around her trip and her motivations-and rightfully so.
Mrs Trump announced her visit at a reception for spouses of world leaders, held on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, in NY recently.
Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah said the visit from October 2-3 will as well help strengthen Ghana's relationship with the United States.
Trump, 48, also had tea with Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, at the presidential palace, known as the Jubilee House.
"Did you say President Trump's wife just arrived in Accra?" street vendor Awo Yeboah asked.
Other locals said they knew about the visit but didn't know what Mrs. Trump was doing. Trump clapped her hands and waved at a group of school children waiting for her at the airport.
Mrs. Trump also plans to visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt. Akufo-Addo was at the airport to welcome her.
