New York Times journalist Katie Rogers posted that Melania said that she tells Donald Trump when she dislikes what he's written.

Rogers wrote on Twitter that Melania had made the comment in Egypt - during which time the President's wife said she wishes people would focus on what she does, rather than what she wears.

The journalist posted: "MORE from FLOTUS, who told me she sometimes takes the president’s phone away. On his sharp words on Twitter: “I don’t always agree with his tweets and I tell him that.”

Rogers wrote: FLOTUS just spoke for five minutes in front of the Sphinx. Touched on MeToo. She said she thinks Kavanaugh is “highly qualified” and “I’m glad Dr. Ford was heard.” ALSO: She said she wishes people would “focus on what I do, not what I wear.”

Mrs Trump was welcomed by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his wife, Entissar, on Saturday after she flew in from Kenya as part of her first solo African trip.
