'Michelle Obama was never under this much of a microscope when it came to her fashion choices, ' she believes.

"I think all the victims, they need - we need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had, but I am against any kind of abuse or violence", she added.

In her meeting with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Egyptian First Lady Entissar al-Sisi at Cairo-based Presidential Palace on Saturday, Melania voiced her admiration for the Egyptian civilization.
