Melania announced the trip at the previous week’s United Nations General Assembly in New York City. “During the trip, Mrs. Trump will learn more about the United States role in providing assistance to help countries become self-sufficient.  Her trip will focus on maternal and newborn care in hospitals, education for children, the deep culture and history woven into each African country, and how the United States is supporting each country on its journey to self-reliance,” her office announced September 26.
