Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: The First Lady of America, Melania Trump, visited the Pyramids of Giza at the end of her four-nation African tour, including Egypt.
Melania Trump stood in front of the statue and contemplated it, and received an explanation from the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mustafa al-Waziri. She highlighted efforts to preserve the effects Washington is cooperating with in Cairo, and then visited the Panorama area of the pyramid to take photographs.
USAID has worked with the Egyptian government over the past three years on a project to reduce groundwater levels to prevent further damage.
Melania met Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife, Egypt's First Lady, Nasr Amer, at the Federal Palace in Cairo.
The first lady's trip to the United States on the African continent is her first major international trip to promote child care and education.
