Melania Trump trolled for #BacktoSchool question to students
Melania Trump launched her #BeBest initiative in May, which promotes children's social and emotional well-being. The campaign is her most visible action as First Lady so far
Melania Trump wrote a message for students heading back to school on Tuesday, which quickly received backlash. The First Lady was widely mocked after she asked students to "think about what you wish to accomplish this year".
Melania, referring to her 'Be Best' initiative, wrote on Twitter: "You have so much power in your individual voices. Will you strive to #BeBest?" She launched her Be Best initiative in May, which works to promote children's social and emotional well-being. The campaign is Melania's most visible action as the First Lady so far.
Melania's question, directed at students, however, did not go well with hundreds of Twitter users, who reacted by saying that students would want to not get shot in school and would like her husband, President Donald Trump, to be removed from office.
A Twitter user, Meaghan H. Helms, shared: "As my kid heads #BacktoSchool, @FLOTUS, I would just like her to not get shot. Or for me to have to worry about that. #BeBest."
Another user, NikkiNightmare, posted: "They probably will spend their entire time at school avoiding flying bullets and trying not to get murdered in the next school shooting."
Good thought, now ask yourself the same question. What do you want to accomplish and how will you claim your power and claim your voice? Will you strive to use your position to rise up and support this country or will you continue to hide in the shadows? Time will tell— Mary Cornelius (@marycornelius75) September 4, 2018

How about having your husband be a good example instead of how to be a bully to children!— Mama Jen (@mamajenxo) September 4, 2018
