Coming up this week: Primary elections, Melania announces her platform and more

First lady Melania Trump listens during a roundtable on cyberbullying in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington

"The Washington Post, among many things, reported that there are "persistent rumors" that Mrs. Trump does not live in this White House and that she lives with her parents somewhere in the suburbs". The first lady urged children online to "choose words wisely and speak with respect and compassion".

In March, Melania spoke about protecting children against Internet abuse, including security and cyberbullying - amid repeated attacks for hypocrisy amid President Donald Trump's tough rhetoric on Twitter.

The poll also found the first lady has gained favorable feelings from Democrats, up 15 points since January.

Mrs. Trump's announcement also came as her husband remains under intense legal pressure from a special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and is facing questions over $130,000 in hush money paid by one of his attorneys to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump in 2006.

The poll surveyed 1,015 people by phone.

First Lady Melania Trump took a major step toward solidifying her legacy during the Trump Administration on Monday. Her initiative comes after previously expressing her interest in children through numerous visits to hospitals and schools over the course of the Trump presidency.

The first lady plans said she will travel as part of the initiative. Trump confessed for the first time her aim to move forward with the topic, regardless of what could possibly be viewed as hypocrisy. "When children learn positive online behaviors early on, social media can be used in productive ways and can affect positive change". BE BEST will support the families and children affected by this crisis, bring attention to neonatal abstinence syndrome, and help educate parents on the importance of healthy pregnancies.

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.

"Together let's encourage children to dream big, think big and do all they can to be best in everything that they do", the first lady said.

Cabinet members such as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar are expected to help the first lady in the rollout of her platform.
