Melania Trump unveils 'Be Best' initiative to help kids

U.S President Donald Trump, and first lady Melania welcome French President Emmanuel Macron, first lady Brigitte Macron after their arrival at the North Portico for before a State Dinner at the White House April 24, 2018 in Washington, DC.

That changes having a planned rosegarden announcement, her first speech from the historical location around the West Wing side of the WhiteHouse, ft by the Oval Office.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders chastised the Washington Post on Monday for reporting a rumor that first lady Melania Trump resides with her parents in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

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. Former first lady Michelle Obama made efforts toward improving child education, poverty and nutrition. Some thing unique though: "She's not narrowed down her platform to just a single topic since has been done previously", Grisham said.

Trump has visited children's hospitals, both here and overseas, and she has also visited universities, for example one in MI last October, where she recently invited centre schoolers to clinic understanding and self confidence. "The First Lady lives here in the White House", Sanders said in response, slamming it as "tabloid gossip".

With her husband, who famously uses social media to take on his opponents, seated front and center at the ceremony, the first lady said social media plays a critical role in children's lives, acknowledging both the positive and negative impacts it has. He added, "your compassion for our nation's children inspires us all".

Trump has promised to tackle cyberbullying as first lady, hosting major online and social media companies at the White House earlier this year.

"I am well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic", she said, per CNN.

"It remains our generation's moral imperative to take responsibility and help our children manage the many issues they are facing today, including encouraging positive social, emotional, and physical habits", a statement from the first lady read on the official website for her initiative. "I've now been criticized for my own devotion to handling this issue and I know will last".

The first lady plans said she will travel as part of the initiative.
