Melania Goes For Power Combo At Initiative Unveiling

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

At the conclusion of Mrs. Trump's remarks, the president kissed her on the cheeks and thanked her before signing a proclamation declaring May 7 "Be Best" day.

Melania Trump channeled a powerful look in a jacket and skirt combo when she unveiled her first initiative titled "Be Best" in the Rose Garden at the White House Monday.

"Too often it's used in negative ways", she said. "I feel strongly as adults we should be best about education our children about a healthy and balanced life".

"I am well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic", Trump said.

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.

A new CNN poll released Monday found that First Lady Melania Trump's approval rating has jumped since January.

Amid Trump threats, Tehran says nuclear deal is all-or-nothing
Had they been fully effective, there'd have been no need for the nuclear deal in the first place. Iran's tech-savvy young people are by and large more progressive than previous generations.

In a statement today, the White House explained that BE BEST will also focus on other aspects, including: "healthy living, encouragement, kindness, and respect".

She was - as usual - overshadowed by her husband. Something unique though: "She has not narrowed her platform down to just one topic as has been done in the past", Grisham said. Trump denies her accusation.

Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, knocked down a "persistent rumor" that the first lady doesn't even live in the White House and stays with her parents near son Barron Trump's school. She convened a White House roundtable on the issue last fall. I got her a lovely card, you know I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents'.

Melania Trump's first speech comes in the 16th month of her White House tenure and is expected to finally give detail to her generally stated goal of aiding the well-being of children.

But that's changed, and Melania Trump is definitely asserting her position as first lady. "The First Lady sees it to be an important issue and something she wants to address". She has a smaller staff than her predecessors and only hired her policy director in January of this year. An official release from the White House outlining the campaign is below.

US First Lady Melania Trump has announced a campaign to teach children the importance of social, emotional and physical health. "Be Best" is a comprehensive program that will focus on three main points - children's well-being, fighting opioid abuse and positivity on social media.
