Melania Trump Responds to Criticism of ‘Hypocrisy’ Over Anti-Cyberbullying
Melania Trump addressed criticism over her anti-cyberbullying campaign at the White House on Tuesday afternoon during a roundtable talk on the issue with leaders of the tech community.
Critics have called the first lady hypocritical for adopting the cause, given her husband President Donald Trump’s well-documented habit of humiliating and lashing out at his foes on Twitter, often using degrading and even racist nicknames.
“I am well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing the topic,” the first lady said Tuesday, according to a pool report. “I have been criticized for my commitment to tackling this issue and I know that will continue, but it will not stop me from doing what I know is right. I am here with one goal: helping children and our next generation.”
