First lady Melania Trump wants people to stop talking so much about her fashion choices.

But this tour, without statements to the press, takes place far from the bustle that reigns in Washington a few weeks before the mid-term elections in November, crucial for the second part of the mandate of the president Donald Trump.

Asked if she believed Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual abusing her when they were teenagers, the first lady said, "I will move on that". It was at Greater Accra Regional Hospital that she plucked a chubby baby boy from the arms of the woman holding him.
