On Monday, First Lady Melania Trump will announce her formal agenda, about 16 months into her husband’s tenure. Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, has recently unveiled that the central topic of Mrs. Trump’s initiative will be children’s well-being.
Grisham also unveiled that her boss would not be choosing just one topic as other First Ladies did in the past.
Mrs. Trump said days after her husband won the 2016 presidential race that her office would focus mostly on cyber-bullying. She will offer a glimpse into the details of the initiative on Monday.
Her husband’s critics noted that it is ironic that the First Lady of the United States has chosen to focus on cyber-bullying when her husband is slamming his critics on Twitter on a constant basis.
In the past, President Trump used Twitter to slam the “fake news” media and even criticize some people over their physical appearances.
The First Lady Poised to Help Children
In March, the First Lady replied to the criticism during a meeting with Silicon Valley leaders. At the time, she vowed to do anything in her power to address cyberbullying and other threats to children’s well-being.
It will not stop me from doing what I know is right. I’m here with one goal: helping children in our next generation,
Mrs. Trump said back then.
Usually, first ladies pick a specific topic or cause and focus on it as long as their husbands are in office. Former First Lady Michelle Obama launched an initiative called “Let’s move” to encourage America to move more and eat healthier. Laura Bush focused on boosting childhood literacy rates in the country.
Mrs. Trump will unveil her initiative on Monday during a Rose Garden ceremony. It will be the first time she delivers an official speech from the White House’ West Wing’s historic location.
