See how this elephant charged at Melania Trump during her ‘Be Best’ tour of Africa

First lady Melania Trump was almost knocked down by a baby elephant on Friday while on safari in Nairobi National Park in Kenya. As she was visiting with and feeding baby elephants, one of them charged at her. The elephant seemed to come at her in a playful way, however, and after momentarily losing her balance, Trump laughed off the brief incident. Stephanie Grisham, Trump’s spokeswoman, told Business Insider the first lady was not injured by the elephant and that she “enjoyed the visit so much.”

Trump is on her first extended solo trip abroad as first lady. The first lady began her trip in Ghana and then visited Malawi before heading to Kenya. The trip is part of her “Be Best” initiative, which focuses on improving the lives of children. Trump on Friday also met with Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta for tea and visited with orphans, dancing with them as they guided her into the orphanage they live in known as The Nest.  President Donald Trump tweeted about Melania’s big trip on Thursday, stating, “Our country’s great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa. The people love her, and she loves them! It is a beautiful thing to see.”
