It all went down when First Lady Melania Trump introduced her husband to the crowd during a public address on September 15 at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. Trump says that children are often "hit first and hardest in any country" when it comes to drug addiction, bullying, poverty, disease, trafficking illiteracy and hunger.
The first lady's speech made no mention her husband as she urged the world to "ensure that our children's future is bright". She asked leaders on social media, as well as community and educational figures to step up on behalf of children.
Melania Trump's United Nations speech preached about setting an example for our children and preventing bullying... Not only was the handshake cordial and business-like, Trump patted her on the back and basically told her to go sit down as if he was talking to a child. "By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit", she said. As adults we are not merely responsible.

Two others aboard a boat were reported missing off La Desirade island, officials told the news agency. Meanwhile, there are still more than 70,000 people without power from Hurricane Irma , she said.
"I hope you will join me in recommitting ourselves to teaching the next generation to live by and honor the Golden Rule".
While the first lady kept a low profile since moving into the White House this June, she has ramped up her public appearances in recent weeks, hosting a dinner for the White House Historical Association last week, visiting with children at Andrews Air Force Base, and traveling to Hurricane-ravaged Texas and Florida with the President in the wake of the two devastating storms.
Trump was involved in crafting her remarks and designed the luncheon alongside NY event-planner David Monn, said Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director. The First Lady addressed the issue of vulnerable children around the world. On Friday, she visited a youth center at Andrews Air Force Base, and on Saturday she will make her first solo trip overseas as first lady to Toronto for the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games.
