Melania Trump Says She'd Fight Cyberbullying as First Lady

"Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers", shesaid. They hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their lives hard and can force them to hide and retreat.
CNN's Anderson Cooper and Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway both agree that Donald Trump's wife Melania is an effective surrogate for the Trump campaign.
"We must treat each other with respect and kindness even when we disagree", she said, without directly addressing the negative tone of the campaign. In what is characterized in the media as a "mostly original" speech, she tried to persuade Americans to vote for her billionaire husband next Tuesday.
Before her convention speech, Melania Trump's net favorable rating of -4 points was already significantly lower than the next-lowest one: the 12 percent garnered by Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
The rest of The View co-hosts were happy to see Trump take a stand on such an important issue, while Jedediah Bila saw it as a genius move for her husband's campaign.
She was introduced by Karen Pence, the wife of her husband's running mate, who praised Mrs Trump as "amazing" and "strong".
Her speech in Berwyn, Pa. - a suburb of Philadelphia - was directed at suburban women, a group that could be critical if Trump wants to pull-off a win next week.

The FBI has obtained a warrant to begin the process of going through the newly found emails to see whether they were classified. Comey was asked to take on the investigation into Rich's pardon in 2003 while serving as the USA attorney in New York City.

Trump outlined a hectic schedule in these final days, announcing a stop in MI , which hasn't voted Republican since 1988. Along with Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, it is among the states where nearly all voting occurs on Election Day.
No doubt this negativity directed toward Melania is a reflection of the strongly negative feelings toward her husband.
Trump also lauded the movement her husband is leading as one that "has inspired millions and millions of people" and called it "inspiring and inclusive". But some women have been left behind. Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, "choked like a dog".
"Do you ever tell Mr. Trump not to tweet so much?"
She also spent time describing how, growing up in her native Slovenia, "America was the word for freedom and opportunity".
She said that the media tended to "cherry pick" posts from Trump's social media presence to highlight insulting behavior. "America meant if you could dream it, you could become it", she said. And we must come together as Americans.
She went on to discuss her plans to fight online bullying as first lady. But warm encouragement from the crowd caused her to break out in wide smiles and relax somewhat as it continued.
Recently, Donald Trump has been under fire for his internet attacks on celebrities, news outlets, and more.
