Melania Trump says she is "the most bullied person in the world"
The first lady, while talking about her anti-bullying initiative, however, did not mention how her husband publicly mocked a sexual assault victim during one of his rallies and called her a liar
First lady Melania Trump recently talked about how she started her Be Best anti-bullying initiative after frequently enduring criticism and attacks online ever since her husband President Donald Trump took office, according to reports.
During her interview with ABC News, Melania said: "I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world." When asked to elaborate on her statement, the first lady said: "One of them - if you really see what people are saying about me."
The first lady, while talking about her anti-bullying initiative, however, did not mention how her husband publicly mocked a sexual assault victim during one of his rallies and called her a liar. She, however, talked about how hard it is for her husband to govern, adding she does not trust all those people around him inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, according to reports.

When asked whether she believes there are people inside the White House her husband "can't' trust," she replied with: "You always need to watch your back." She was also asked if she had 100 percent control over her husband, to which the first lady laughed and replied with: "I wish. I give him my honest advice and honest opinions. And then he does what he wants to do."
Melania Trump also gave her perspective on the #MeToo movement in her first televised interview. She, however, appeared to echo her husband's comments, suggesting that "really hard evidence" is required from sexual assault victims if they want to accuse their perpetrators.
Melania, while speaking to ABC's Good Morning America, said: "You need to have really hard evidence, that if you accuse of something, show the evidence." Her statement came after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court Justice earlier this week despite multiple sexual assault allegations against him, similar to her husband.
The first lady said: "I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted,' or 'You did that to me,' cause sometimes the media goes too far, and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct. It's not right."
Melania's statement appeared to resemble the ones issued by President Donald Trump, who during an FBI investigation into the sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh, said he was worried of men being falsely accused.
