Reporter: Mrs. Trump also taking this opportunity to talk about her husband's tweets. Well, I don't always agree what he tweets and I tell him that.

Reporter: When it comes to her voice, she says she prefers people focus on that instead of what she chooses to wear, the white hat she wore evoking criticism for its similarity to the style worn by colonists in Africa. You know what, we just completed an amazing trip. We went to Ghana. We went to Malawi. We went to Kenya. Here we are in Egypt. I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear and that's very important what I do, what we do with U.S. Aid and what I do with my initiatives and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.
