Melania Trump breaks fashion "rules," wears white pumps before Memorial Day

Melania responds to critics

She will make the announcement at the Rose Garden, her first speech from the historic location on the West Wing side of the White House, reports CNN.

First lady Melania Trump announced her agenda of personal initiatives Monday afternoon, which are centered on the well-being of American children.

The first lady has already made cyber-bullying prevention a priority during her tenure as well as the focusing on effects of opioid abuse on newborns, tying in to the federal response to the opioid epidemic. Mrs. Trump has expressed interest in protecting children from cyberbullying, but as political observers have pointed out before, there's a certain irony there when her husband tweets insulting, nasty comments about his enemies on a regular basis.

She also brought focus to the deadly impact opioid addiction has on young children and infants, touching on her past participation in drug addiction roundtables and visits to local treatment facilities.

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

Hamas' military wing however blamed Israel in a statement and said a "heinous crime has been committed against our fighters". The kite launches came as part of the Great March of Return mass protests, which have been held weekly since March 30.

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

The first lady said social media can both "positively and negatively" affect children. Trump confessed for the first time her aim to move forward with the topic, regardless of what could possibly be viewed as hypocrisy.

By promoting values such as healthy living, encouragement, kindness, and respect, parents, teachers, and other adults can help prepare children for their futures.

Trump said the goal of her public awareness campaign is to encourage parents and all adults to impart on children to be kind, refrain from bullying on social media and elsewhere as well as stay away from drugs. The administration includes a mention of using this campaign to equip kids to "deal with the evils of the opioid crisis", too.

Grisham adds that the first lady will concentrate her initiative on the range of issues children face as they grow up and will not tailor it to a single topic. "By acknowledging there are many important issues, and knowing these problems cannot be solved overnight, I believe we can change the way we think and talk about issues facing children today". BE BEST will highlight the importance of using social media and the internet in positive ways.
