WASHINGTON (AP) — Melania Trump says that, if she becomes first lady, she’d focus on combatting online bullying as part of her work as an advocate for women and children.

The wife of Donald Trump said Thursday in a rare appearance on the campaign trail that, “Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers.” She spoke at a rally outside Philadelphia.

She said that it’s “absolutely unacceptable” when children are mocked, bullied and attacked online anonymously.

Mrs. Trump’s goals may seem at odds with her husband, who has a long history of using Twitter to insult people.

Mrs Trump said: “We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.”

    Typical AP. Pointing out that Donald Trump insults people on line. But they’re adults, AP. She’s talking about children. Get you’re biased story straight for once.
