While traveling to Egypt, as part of her solo African tour, Melania Trump told reporters that she feels as though judge Brett Kavanaugh is "highly qualified" to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. “If we're talking about the Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh, I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court," she said. The First Lady also generically responded to all other aspects of the Kavanaugh confirmation, claiming she was happy Dr. Ford was heard, and that an FBI investigation was opened. “We need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had,” she said. “But I am against any kind of abuse or violence.”
However, before delving into her profound political opinions, Melania was asked about her husband's "shithole countries" comment as she was touring the African continent. Melania responded by explaining that she doesn't always agree with Trump's tweets, and she's honest with him about that. “I don’t always agree [with] what he tweets and I tell him that.” She added, “I give him my honest opinion and honest advice. Sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn’t. I have my own voice and my opinions and it’s very important to me that I express how I feel.”
When asked if she ever tells the president to put down his phone, Melania admitted, “Yes!”
Melania traveled to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt on her first solo trip as First Lady. While in Egypt, she met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and his wife, Entissar Mohammed Amer. She also visited the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx to discuss preservation efforts on behalf of the U.S.
Although Melania shut down the questions surrounding her innocence when she sported the "I don't really care" jacket on her way to visit detained immigrant children at the border, it appears as though she actually has opinions on things.
