KENYA: Melania Trump Laments Elephant Poaching

Bloomberg reports:

First lady Melania Trump played with orphaned elephants in Kenya on Friday, providing a contrast with her stepson, Donald Trump Jr., who was photographed holding a severed elephant tail in one hand and a knife in the other during a big game hunting trip in Africa.

Her visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, came on the fourth day of a week-long visit to Africa.

The first lady also stopped at a site where ivory burns take place — a conservationist effort meant to discourage the ivory trade. “It is sad to see this,” she told her guide, after picking up a handful of the ash.
