The first lady continued her campaign against bullying with comments at a summit in Maryland on Monday. Specifically, she warned all generations of the ill effects possible on social media.
“Let’s face it: most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults, but we still need to do all we can to provide them with information and tools for successful and safe online habits,” Melania Trump said.
She went on to say that social media can be “destructive and harmful when used incorrectly.”
The president has increasingly relied on Twitter in recent weeks to rail against political enemies amid a special counsel investigation and bombshell claims in former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new memoir.
As Scope News reported, Donald Trump dismissed Manigault-Newman as a “crying lowlife” and a “dog.”
The first lady has addressed the apparent disconnect between her Be Best campaign and her husband’s divisive Twitter insults.
“She’s addressed this before,” a spokeswoman said. “She is well aware of the criticism, but that will not deter her from doing what she feels is right. I would hope most people in this country are proud that they have a strong and independent First Lady who only has the best interests of children at heart – I know I am.”
