Baby Elephants Charged at Melania Trump in Kenya — Good Thing She Wasn’t Wearing Her Beloved Stilettos

Melania Trump is in Kenya today as part of her four-country, five-day solo tour of Africa. While there, she toured Nairobi’s National Park, where she had the chance to feed baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and visited The Nest, an organization for children whose parents have been incarcerated.

For the occasion, our first lady chose an appropriate outfit that included a white shirt tucked into beige belted trousers, which she wore with rich brown leather riding boots and a pith helmet.

The dark brown knee-high style featured a classic round toe, a zipper on the inner side and three buckles on the outer. The 48-year-old first lady seemed at ease as she walked and danced with children from The Nest.

While meeting two baby elephants, they reportedly got too excited and charged at her, causing a secret service agent to pull Trump away from them.
