"If we're talking about the Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh, I think he's highly qualified for the Supreme Court", she said.

Fielding questions from reporters near the Great Pyramid of Giza on Saturday, Melania revealed she sometimes recommends her husband, Donald Trump, put his phone away.

However, she told reporters, referring to the Twitter habits of her husband, Donald Trump, that she doesn't "always agree with what he tweets". He listened sometimes, and sometimes did not, she said.

Mrs. Trump's outfit choices have drawn considerable attention, as when she wore a jacket that read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" during a trip to visit migrant children who'd been separated from their families at the southern border. The style was frequently worn by European travelers and explorers visiting areas such as Africa, Southeast Asia, and the tropics in the late 19th Century, and by military personnel from countries such as Britain, France, Spain, and Italy while commanding colonial armies.

In her meeting with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Egyptian First Lady Entissar al-Sisi at Cairo-based Presidential Palace on Saturday, Melania voiced her admiration for the Egyptian civilization.
