Melania Trump has arrived in Ghana, choosing for her first extended global trip alone to visit Africa, a continent her husband has referred to derisively.

On March 20, she met with top executives of technology companies including Amazon, Google, Twitter, Snap and Facebook, to discuss the issue of cyberbullying and how it affects children.

For some odd unfathomable reason, First Lady Melania Trump looks a lot happier when she is away from the POTUS than when she's with him.

Mothers at the hospital for her visit received gifts of teddy bears nestled in white baby blankets, personally handed out by the first lady, according to her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.

Her son, Barron, did not accompany her on the trip.

The US first lady stepped off an overnight flight from Andrews Airforce Base near Washington and onto a red carpet at Accra's Kotoka International Airport. The items carried the logo of "Be Best", the child well-being initiative Mrs. Trump launched last May. She arrived in the West African nation on Tuesday and visited a baby clinic.

Mrs. Trump plans to visit a hospital neonatal intensive care unit before going to the presidential palace for tea with Akufo-Addo. She was welcomed at the airport with dancing and drumming, schoolchildren waving mini US and Ghanaian flags and the gift of a flower bouquet.

The visit is being organised in partnership with USAID has been described by Mrs Trump as "four handsome and very different countries in Africa", who have worked closely with the Agency in various areas.
