Earlier today, the First Lady announced that she is planning to visit a number of African countries including Malawi and Ghana, but social media reacted negatively to the news! The reason? A lot of users remember her husband, President Donald Trump calling some African places ‘sh*holes’!
It looks like no matter what she does, Melania is always followed by Donald’s scandals.
After the woman shared that she will be traveling to the African continent by herself, social media users slammed her.
Her trip is set to bring awareness on child welfare and is part of Melania’s Be Best initiative.
Furthermore, it will kick off on October 1 and the FLOTUS will be visiting Egypt, Kenya, Malawi, and Ghana.
But after learning her itinerary, a lot of Twitter users were outraged and it’s all because the Donald once asked his fellow lawmakers ‘why do we want’ any immigrants from ‘shithole [African] countries.’
The nations he was talking about were El Salvador, Haiti and other areas on the continent.
At the time, the president took to social media the next day to tweet that while his words were really ‘tough’ it was ‘not the language used.’
‘@FLOTUS going to Africa Trump just said it was the ‘most beautiful place in the world’ I THOUGHT IT WAS A ‘SHITHOLE,’ someone reacted to Melania’s announcement.
After her husband’s comments about “huts” and “shithole countries,” Melania Trump heads to Africa to try her hand at soft diplomacy https://t.co/7oaxrXgYvc

‘OMG @FLOTUS Melania is having a press conference shortly to announce that she’s going to be visiting AFRICA. AFRICA people, AFRICA!!! The Shithole as her husband called it,’ someone else tweeted.
Meanwhile, another user made reference to her infamous ‘I really don’t care’ jacket and wondered if she will be wearing her ‘Africa Is A Shithole Country’ T-shirt or jacket?’ this time around.
