Ahead of talks with Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Trump remarked his wife Melania was amazed by the country and specifically the Great Pyramids. Trump insisted that the First Lady was “treated beautifully” during her time in Egypt. Melania visited the country during her visit of four African nations including Malawi, Kenya and Ghana.
Tweeting at the time, Melania said: “Had an unbelievable experience visiting the Great Pyramid and Sphinx in Egypt last week.
“Thank you President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi and First Lady Entissar Amer for welcoming me with such warm hospitality.”
Speaking earlier this week, the US President continued to praise Egypt as he met with Mr al-Sisi to discuss trade and terrorism with the Egyptian leader.
Speaking specifically of his wife’s trip to the Great Pyramids Trump revealed not only is she hard to impress but that it was one of the “most incredible” things she’s seen.
Trump said: “What she saw with the Pyramids was — you could call it the seventh wonder or the eighth wonder of the world.
“She thought it was incredible. She thought it was one of the most incredible things she’s seen.
“We have lots of pictures, and that was a great day and a great moment to see the Pyramids — the Great Pyramids.
“So hopefully a lot of people will be going and looking at them. But she’s not easily impressed; she was very impressed.”
Away from Melania’s trip to the north African country, Trump has spoken of his desire to go after the origins which led to Robert Mueller opening an investigation into the President.
Attorney General, William Barr announced this week that he was putting together a team to review controversial decisions made during the probe into Trump.
Trump himself labelled the investigation led by Mr Mueller as “an attempted coup”.
He concluded: “This was an attempted take-down of a president. And we beat them. We beat them.
“So the Mueller report, when they talk about obstruction we fight back. And do you know why we fight back?
“Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was. It was a scam.”
