After over a year of talking about her plans to prevent Cyberbullying, First Lady Melania Trump took her first step in addressing her initiate. Not long after making note of the elephant in the room in the form of her husband's Twitter habits, critics on social media decided to hit back.

Melania on Twitter

When Melania Trump announced that one of her top goals as first lady would be to help end the growing issue of cyberbullying on the internet, her announcement was met with groans and laughter.

Since kicking off his campaign for president back in June 2015, Donald Trump has used Twitter as a way to promote his agenda, while also taking shots at his critics. It's become common place for Trump to lash out on social media, insulting those who oppose him in the same fashion that Melania has spoken out against.

As reported by CSPAN on March 20, Melania Trump met with top executives from Twitter, Amazing, Google, YouTube, and others at the White House to help speak about her concern.

At this point, Melania acknowledged that many don't believe she is the best person to push this issue due to her husband's reputation. "I'm well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic," Melania said. "I have been criticized for my commitment to tackling this issue, and I know that will continue," she continued, before adding, "But it will not stop me from doing what I know is right."

Not stopping there, Melania Trump later took to Twitter to thank the executives for attending her meeting.

"It was a very productive meeting on cyber safety & how to teach our children to be responsible digital citizens," she wrote.

Instant backlash

Following her meeting and remarks on cyberbullying, Melania Trump was met with criticism. "I know you are not responsible for your husband’s actions, yet, while he continues to bully through his tweets, your words and actions, unfortunately, will mean absolutely nothing," one tweet read.

"Which is of course, doing nothing," Danny Deraney posted. "Just remember, it’s always starts at home!!!" another tweet added. "It’s not just her husband, she pushed the birther conspiracy herself. Stopped feeling sympathetic after finding out about that," yet another tweet stated.

"What the hell has she done?....NOTHING," a social media user wrote. "Sorry, but you’ve had 15 months to come up with a plan to curb cyber bullying and all we got was today’s show? Hard Pass from us," an additional tweet pointed out.
