First Lady Melania Trump delivered a speech Monday morning at the Cyberbullying Prevention Summit in Rockville, Maryland, ironically telling participants how children are more aware of the pitfalls of social media than some adults.

"Let’s face it," the First Lady told attendees, "most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults, but we still need to do all we can to provide them with information and tools for successful and safe online habits," she said, according to her prepared remarks.

The First Lady's speech was made in connection with her Be Best campaign to combat cyberbullying against children while teaching them good behavior.

"In today’s global society, social media is an inevitable part of our children’s daily lives," the First Lady also shared with attendees, who included HHS Secretary Alex Azar. "It can be used in many positive ways, but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly. That is why Be Best chooses to focus on the importance of teaching our next generation how to conduct themselves safely and in a positive manner in an online setting."

President Trump reportedly is not supportive of the First Lady's campaign, as The Hill notes.
