First lady Melania Trump claimed during an ABC interview Thursday morning that she is the most bullied person in the world.

“If you really see what people are saying about me …” she said, explaining that her own experience had been the inspiration for her campaign against cyberbullying.


The first lady, who sat down with ABC’s Tom Llamas during her first solo trip to Africa, appeared to surprise Llamas with the claim. He pressed, “You think you’re the most bullied person in the world.”

“One of them,” Melania responded. “If you really see what people are saying about me — that’s why I, you know — 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 … they know how to deal with those issues.”

The first lady also admitted that there were some within the administration that she felt her husband couldn’t truly trust. “I let him know,” she explained. “Some people they don’t work there anymore and it’s very difficult sometimes because I’m so busy with my office, I don’t get involved with the West Wing.”
