White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders chastised the Washington Post on Monday for reporting a rumor that first lady Melania Trump resides with her parents in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
The first lady said early on that she would focus on child well-being.
Grisham adds that the first lady will concentrate her initiative on the range of issues children face as they grow up and will not tailor it to a single topic. Trump said the "Be Best" campaign will help to support families and children affected by the opioid epidemic, reduce the stigma of drug addiction across the country and bring awareness to programs and places now serving the issue like Lily's Place and the Cincinnati Children's hospital.
The first lady says she's concerned that today's children are less prepared to manage their emotions and too often turn to destructive or addictive behavior, such as bullying or drug addiction.
Most modern wives of presidents have opted to choose one standout point of interest and use their elevated status to promote or encourage behavior.
In honor of this occasion, the Washington Post took a closer look at the First Lady's private life in a piece published Sunday. The president was sitting in the front row of the conference, feet away, as she announced, "As we all know, social media can both positively and negatively affect our children". And Laura Bush, who debuted "Willing to Read, Ready to Learn", her program to promote ancient education and literacy, in July of her first year since first lady.

She also appears to cope with what politely could be called a complicated marriage by creating a separate space for herself and for the Trumps' 12-year-old son Barron in the White House, according to the Post and The Guardian. "Just listen to a heart, but be yourself", Trump told that the kids.
That changes having a planned rosegarden announcement, her first speech from the historical location around the West Wing side of the WhiteHouse, ft by the Oval Office.
"Thank you ahead of time for sharing your own stories and your thinking on your struggles and triumphs. I want to help children everywhere be their best, so with your help, we can achieve positive results", the first lady said, before asking the children to go around and introduce themselves and tell her their favorite hobbies.
"I'm aware we're skeptical about me talking that topic", said Trump. "I have been criticized for my commitment to tackling this issue and I know that will continue, but it will not stop me from doing what I know is right".
"This is something that is extremely important to the first lady", Sanders replies.
