Not long after Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, it was only a matter of time before First Lady Melania Trump got in on the action. After announcing that her top project would be focused around ending cyberbullying, critics of the president quickly responded.

Melania on Twitter

When Donald Trump announced he was running for president in June 2015, he did so on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City with his family by his side. From that moment it became clear that the former host of "The Apprentice" and the mainstream media would not be on the same page.

The rift between the two got worse, with Trump deciding early on that he would promote his message on social media in an attempt to bypass the tradition press. Along with this strategy came aggressive, and at times offensive, behavior on his Twitter account where he would attack his critics in a personal manner. Whether it was his opponents in the Republican primary, Democrats, celebrities or anyone else who got in his way, the billionaire real estate mogul became the face of cyberbullying. Due to this, it caught many off guard when Melania Trump wanted to highlight and tackle cyberbullying as a project for herself in the White House. After seven months, Melania is doing just that, but received heat from many after sending a tweet to former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton on August 23.

Over the weekend, the right-wing Daily Caller website ran a piece on Barron Trump, attacking the president's son over his choice of wardrobe. In response, Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter in Barron's defense.

"Dear Matty-Barron is A KID. No child should be talked about in the below manner-in real life or online," she tweeted on Tuesday, before adding, "And for an adult to do so? For shame."

Less than 24 hours later, Melania Trump tweeted back to Chelsea Clinton, thanking her for the kind words of support for the criticism her son received.

"Thank you @ChelseaClinton - so important to support all of our children in being themselves!," Melania tweeted, while using the hashtag "#StopChildhoodBullying."

Twitter reacts

Not long after Melania Trump sent out her tweet to Chelsea Clinton, social media critics of the president were quick to point out the irony. "Melania's first public platform was to state she was going to be an anti-online bullying advocate, right?" one tweet read, which followed with "Then she has nothing to say on the topic; not a single peep... because her own husband is notoriously the most high profile online bully."

"What a coincidence!!

At the same time @realDonaldTrump is bullying @GStephanopoulos, we got this anti-bullying message from @FLOTUS" another tweet read. "How do you think the Obama children felt when you and your husband questioned their father's citizenship?" another Twitter user added.

"Melania, I applaud your wish to keep Barron from getting bullied, but your husband continues to bully everyone in his path," one tweet noted. The negative reaction continued as Melania Trump was once again on the receiving end of the backlash directed at her husband and the current administration.
