Melania Trump calls for social media users to stop cyberbullying

Melania Trump calls for social media users to stop cyberbullying

She delivered the speech at a cyberbullying prevention summit, held just outside of Washington in Rockville, Md., where she was joined by representatives from various tech platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Google.

The US president wrote that Robert Mueller, the man leading the Russian election meddling probe, was "disgraced and discredited" and called John Brennan, the former CIA director turned prominent critic, the agency's worst leader in history.

Between calling LeBron James dumb, calling Omarosa a dog, calling Ted Cruz's wife ugly, saying Mika Brzezinski was "bleeding badly from a face lift", and of course attacking the men and women of the U.S. Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation...

"Let's face it", she said. "In addition to sharing their 15 beliefs for how to be healthy and safe online, they each showed me individual projects representing their thoughts and ideas on what responsible behavior means to them", she said as she encouraged other companies to establish similar programs for children.

The first lady's communications director on Monday defended her advocacy on the issue, in spite of the contrast it draws to President Trump's social media habits, as something that should be celebrated.

"Most children are more aware of the pitfalls and benefits of social media than adults", said the first lady, saying that adults should be more willing to talk openly with children in order to "help them navigate this often hard topic". He called Brennan, who has frequently criticized the administration, a "political 'hack'".

Mrs. Trump and her team, however, are taking the backlash in stride.

Melania Trump, in her brief remarks to the summit on Monday, focused on children and her Be Best initiative to help improve the life of young people. "By listening to children's ideas and concerns, I believe adults will be better able to help them navigate this often-difficult topic". "That is why Be Best chooses to focus on the importance of teaching our next generation how to conduct themselves safely and in a positive manner in an online setting", the first lady said after being introduced by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

She added: 'She's addressed this before.
