Melania Trump launches 'BE BEST' awareness campaign for kids

Share

First lady Melania Trump is making her press conference debut from the White House's Rose Garden on Monday, the setting for official announcements and statements.

The platform pillars she revealed during her 10-minute speech in the White House Rose Garden include well-being, encompassing healthy living as well as emotional health; opioid abuse, including bringing awareness to neonatal abstinence syndrome and emphasizing the importance of healthy pregnancy; and social media, where Trump plans to encourage kids to use the internet in positive ways, tamping down cyberbullying and negativity.

As first lady, Melania Trump has spoken about bullying and other issues affecting children since her husband, President Donald Trump, assumed office over a year ago.

During almost 16 months as first lady, Mrs. Trump demonstrated her interest in children by visiting with young hospital patients in the USA and during overseas trips with the president, often reading to them and encouraging them to do their best.

The First Lady first announced that she was interested in using her perch in the East Wing to combat cyberbullying on the campaign trail, a decision that many called hypocritical given her husband's own social media habits and penchant for dishing out low blows. "I feel strongly as adults we should be best about education our children about a healthy and balanced life". "The First Lady lives here in the White House", Sanders said in response, slamming it as "tabloid gossip". "And i believe together we can make a real difference".

The first lady made headlines for her compassionate reaction when one of the children accidentally spilled his drink.

CNN speculates that the rise in the First Lady's numbers "could likely be due to the sympathy factor", going on to note "numerous salacious stories regarding alleged infidelities in the couple's marriage". Melania Trump has remained quiet, yet she has expressed examples of independence during this time.

"As we all know, social media can both positively and negatively affect our children".

"I am happy to report that since posting her video, many have watched it and most importantly, people have reached out to offer support and kindness", the first lady said Monday as she recognized Goldberg. Her choice was ridiculed nearly immediately, given her husband's longtime habit of calling people names on Twitter, but Mrs. Trump said the criticism wouldn't discourage her from doing what she thinks is right.

The poll also found the first lady has gained favorable feelings from Democrats, up 15 points since January. "But it will not stop me from doing what I know is right".
