Melania Trump calls for social media users to stop cyberbullying

Neither she nor any of those who spoke during morning sessions mentioned President Donald Trump and his aggressive use of Twitter to berate his foes and call them names.The first lady instead spoke highly of a group of students she recently met who participate in Microsoft's Council for Digital Good.

Since coming to office Melania Trump has spoken relatively infrequently in public. Later in the speech, she then added, "Let's face it: most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults".

Monday marked the sixth Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention (FPBP) Cyberbullying Prevention Summit.

The event follows the May unveiling of the first lady's "Be Best" initiative, a campaign to help bring awareness to the most important issues facing the nation's children, including overall well-being, social media and opioid abuse.

"It is exactly what she wants it to be, and has been a success", Mrs. Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham said.

The president told Melania that she would likely receive backlash over the topic, given his incendiary Twitter habits, the Times reported.

Not far away, President Trump was himself online, sending a series of angry tweets in which he called one of his most vocal critics, former CIA Director John Brennan, a "political "hack"." "It can be used in many positive ways but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly".

'This 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'.

Last week, the president referred to his former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, once the only African-American woman among the senior White House staff, as a "crazed, crying lowlife" and "that dog".

Speaking at an-anti cyberbullying summit in Rockville, MD., Monday, the First Lady said children are more knowledgable about social media than their parents, but that they need help to develop "successful and safe" online habits.

"Bullying is an impediment that must be addressed and stopped, and it has no place in our communities", she said.
