Melania Trump Condemns Child Bullying At U.N. Luncheon

US First Lady Melania Trump has called on the international community to better protect and support children, speaking out against bullying and urging parents and leaders around the world to "come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined."

Melania was speaking yesterday Wednesday Sept. 20th, 2017, during the luncheon hosted at the U.S. mission to the United Nations with spouses of world leaders.

"No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn," the first lady said.  "We need to step up, come together, and ensure that our children's future is bright."

Melania Trump was seated at a table with Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; Brigitte Macron, the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron; and Emine Erdoğan, the wife of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

In her remarks, the first lady urged those in her audience to “join me in recommitting ourselves to teaching the next generation to lead and honor the golden rule.” She said it was her generation’s “moral imperative” to be responsible for what children learn.

Nothing could be more urgent nor worthy a cause than preparing future generations for the adulthood with true moral clarity and responsibility,” Trump said. “To achieve this, we must come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined.”
