In an interview with ABC News, Melania Trump explained the motivation behind her "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign.

She quickly backpedals a half-step to say "one of them", she is only one of the most bullied people in the world, "if you really see what people [are] saying about me".

Her comments come on the heels of an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times claiming that there is a "resistance" within the Trump administration. But, she said, it's hard for her to monitor entirely because "I'm so busy with my office I don't get involved with West Wing". "Do you support the #MeToo movement?" When asked to name some of the groups, she declined, saying only: "They know who they are".

Reflecting on her time in the White House, Melania stated, "I really love to live in Washington and in the White House and, yes, I'm enjoying it".

Llamas asked Melania about the #MeToo movement and her thoughts about the accusations against her husband, President Donald Trump. "But we need to show the evidence", she said.

The First Lady told ABC News that personal attacks on her inspired her to launch the "Be Best" anti-bullying initiative. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

"I'd use an expression - you know there's an expression - but under the rules of Me Too, I'm not allowed to use the expression anymore", he said.

The first lady also took the opportunity to express her frustration about being snubbed by foundations she'd like to work with because of opposition to the Trump White House.

"I give him my honest advice and honest opinions, and then he does what he wants to do", she added.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, at least 13 women accused Donald Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment to sexual assault.
