On Friday, First Lady Melania Trump visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. On this visit, she got to feed baby elephants.

What she didn’t expect was for one baby elephant to move quickly and bump into her. Luckily, the first lady wasn’t harmed and took it in her stride.

Melania Trump’s week-long visit to Africa last week led her to Kenya. During her visit, she got to highlight conservation efforts in the country.

She even had the pleasure of feeding ravenous baby elephants some formula. The two elephants were raised at the Nairobi National Park.
