No headscarf as Melania Trump arrives in Saudi Arabia
Melania and Ivanka Trump both arrived in Saudi Arabia on Saturday without their heads covered - two years after Donald Trump  criticised Michelle Obama for doing the same thing, according to The Telegraph.

The First Lady and First Daughter were both dressed modestly when they alighted at King Khalid International Airport but neither wore a headscarf, as Saudi women are required to do by law.

Mr Trump said in 2015 that Mrs Obama had “insulted” Saudi Arabia by not covering her head when she and President Barack Obama visited the Muslim country.

“Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enuf enemies,” Mr Trump said on Twitter in January 2015.

Six months later he announced he was running for president.

Saudi women are forced to cover up when they leave their homes but visiting Western female dignitaries tend not to cover their heads when visiting. Neither Theresa May nor Angela Merkel wore headscarves during their visits earlier this year.
