Melania Trump arrives in Ghana wearing red and white striped Celine dress

Mrs Trump and Rebecca Akufo-Addo the First

Melania Trump is visiting a former slave holding facility on the coast of Ghana on the second day of her Africa tour.

She adds that the castle is a "special place".

"I will never forget the stories.really, really touching".

Trump arrived in Ghana on Tuesday wearing a Manolo Blahnik court shoes and a red and white striped dress by French fashion house Céline, as she was greeted by Ghana's own First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

They are characterized by what was referred to as a "door of no return" - an archway on the seaboard side of the castle which slaves were forced to walk through to be lowered onto boats and taken to cargo ships.

Peering though the archway, Trump paused for a moment before laying a wreath near a dungeon door.

The highlight of Wednesday's itinerary was the tour of Cape Coast Castle, a major outpost on the Atlantic slave trading route, where she also met members of the local Fante tribe. She also signed a vistor's book, thanking her hosts for a warm welcome.

First Lady Melania Trump appears to have hardly stopped smiling since leaving her husband Donald in DC to embark on her first official solo trip.

The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's. They noted that other witnesses are "essential for a fair hearing".

But there were signs that the soft diplomatic push was yet to take off locally, as comparisons were drawn to the visit of former U.S. president Barack Obama and his family in 2009.

"Whether it is education, drug addiction, hunger, online safety or bullying, poverty or disease, it is too often children who are hit first, and hardest, across the globe", Melania said in a brief address to a group that included the spouses of foreign leaders last week in NY, when they were in town for the United Nations General Assembly. The two first met last week in NY at a reception on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, where Mrs. Trump spoke about her upcoming trip.

The first lady's visit was a lower-key affair than Obama's visit as the first black USA president, and reminders of his visit with wife Michelle were prominent.

"It's really, really touching", she said.

"With love, Melania Trump".

Mrs. Trump's final event of the first day in Africa was a private tea with Ghanaian first lady Akufo-Addo at Jubilee House, the presidential palace.
