Melania Trump Warns of Cyberbullying as President Continues Attacks on Twitter

Melania Trump Warns of Cyberbullying as President Continues Attacks on Twitter

US First Lady Melania Trump renewed her campaign to tackle cyber bullying on Monday, as her husband lit up the internet with a stream of invective against his perceived foes. "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".

She encouraged technology and social media companies as well as schools and community groups "to establish more opportunities for children such as Microsoft's Council for Digital Good".

"By listening to children's ideas and concerns, I believe adults will be better able to help them navigate these often hard topics", Trump said, while also saying: "But we still need to do all we can to provide them with information and tools for successful and safe online habits".

After speaking, Mrs. Trump took a seat in the front row and listened to a panel discussion featuring representatives of Facebook, Google, Twitter and the nonprofit Family Online Safety Institute talk about how they're responding to the issue.

Just minutes after Melania's speech he was attacking John Brennan, whose security clearance he removed last week simply for criticizing him, calling him a "hack" and the "worst CIA Director in our country's history". Brennan, who led the Central Intelligence Agency under President Barack Obama, a Democrat, has been an outspoken critic of Trump, a Republican, over his performance and behaviour as president. Trump has promised he is going to pull clearances of more current and former CIA/DOJ officials and released the names of those he is targeting.

Beef Between Cam Newton And Kelvin Benjamin Seems to Have Escalated
Neither will get the opportunity to hash things out since the two teams do not face each other in the upcoming season. Newton followed Benjamin, but nothing positive seemed to come from their continued dialogue.


Mrs. Trump and her team, however, are taking the backlash in stride. Due to medical restrictions placed on her travel following kidney surgery in May, she did not accompany Trump to Singapore for his one-on-one meeting in June with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The president suggested that Mrs. Trump choose a different topic to avoid questions about how the wife of a notorious Twitter bully could lead a campaign to spotlight anti-bullying and other child wellness efforts, and he warned her that she was opening herself to such jeers, people familiar with the conversations said.

US First Lady Melania Trump arrives alongside US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar (L) arrive for the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention. She said bullying of Asian Americans is often compounded by cultural differences, and that cyberbullying is "still pervasive". "And we need to stop it".

As the same time, he said he was also being harassed on social media.
