U.S. first lady Melania Trump embarked on her first solo trip to Africa and is set to visit Ghana and Malawi as her first two stops along her five-day, four country trip.

Even though some worried that previous statements made by her husband, President Donald Trump, would affect Trump’s visit, one resident said the complete opposite.

Daniel Afful, a local, called Trump “brave.”

Despite the president’s previous statement, Afful said that “she has come to see how wonderful we are.”

“I think she’s kind and nice. I like that,” Afful added.
