When pressed by the reporter interviewing her, the First Lady continued:

“One of them. If you really see what people saying about me. That’s why my ‘Be Best’ initiative is focusing on social media and online behavior. We need to educate the children of social emotional behavior so when they grow up and they know how to deal with those issues.”

Later in the interview, Melania Trump also said there were people within President Donald Trump‘s administration that she doesn’t trust—a notion shared by other members of the first family, including Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son.

When asked whether she told the president about her misgivings about some staffers, the First Lady said she gave him her opinions.

“Well, some people, they don’t work there anymore,” she said. “It’s very difficult sometimes because I’m so busy with my office, I don’t get involved with West Wing.”

The First Lady’s assertion that she was one of the most bullied people in the world was not met well online.

ABC News reporter Tom Llamas, who conducted the interview, said the First Lady will address the online harassment she faces in an upcoming segment of the interview.
