Kavanaugh, who denies the allegation, is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as a Supreme Court justice this weekend.

Speaking in Cairo at the end of an African tour that included a stop in Egypt, Melania Trump also said that alleged negative comments attributed to her husband President Donald Trump about African nations did not come up during her trip.
