Melania Trump unveils 'Be Best' initiative to help kids

Monday's announcement followed a period of high visibility for a first lady who once had a scant public presence around the White House.

In recent weeks, she also has begun to step out from under his shadow. Myra Gutin, a historian of American first ladies at Rider University, told NPR that actually, what Melania has to deal with might actually work to her advantage.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, says the focus will be on the overall well-being of children, which Mrs. Trump has spoken about since becoming first lady. Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" was unveiled 11 months after becoming first lady, in February 2010 and Laura Bush launched "Ready to Read, Ready to Learn", in July of her first year as first lady. Trump denies her accusation. I got her a attractive card, you know I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents'.

At the White House, Melania and Donald Trump often don't eat dinner together, insiders told the Washington Post.

She has also spoken to children about dealing with negativity and self-esteem when she visited schools like a middle school in MI last October. The campaign will focus on the well-being of children, fighting the opioid epidemic and social media use.

Cyberbullying is expected to be part of the first lady's platform and Sanders said Melania Trump "sees it as an important issue".

"There is one goal, to "Be Best" - that is to educate children about the many issues they're facing today", she said at the Rose Garden ceremony.

The report stated that the couple are "often apart even during their free time", with one friend of President Trump saying "they spend very little to no time together".

The initiative calls for parents, teachers, and adults to help promote values such as healthy living, kindness, encouragement, and kindness so that children are prepared to avoid both the opioid crisis and negative social media interactions.

Today's ever-connected children need our support to find happiness and to prepare themselves for adulthood. BE BEST will highlight the importance of using social media and the internet in positive ways.

"Mrs. Trump wishes to help the next generation by creating change through awareness on a variety of issues that affect children", she said. Awkward, right? Melania's husband, President Donald Trump, is essentially the biggest (and most powerful) cyber bully in the world.

The president pledged to "be best for our families, best for our communities and best for our nation".
