Here's what to expect when first lady Melania Trump moves to the White House

With summer fast approaching, First lady Melania Trump and first son Barron are set to move to the White House soon and that means we'll finally get a full picture of her plans as first lady.

Melania Trump decided to spend the first few months of President Trump's administration living in New York, giving the world only a few glimpses of how she plans to comport herself in the traditional role of first lady.

While her staff is expected to grow from its current count, 10, many expect she will employe fewer staffers than her predecessors, including former first ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.

Michelle Obama employed 24 people in her East Wing staff -- the informal title for the first lady's staff, derived from its location in the East Wing of the White House -- setting a record in modern history. Laura Bush employed 18 during her time in the East Wing and Hillary Clinton had 19 staffers.

Trump apparently sees the first lady's office as an opportunity to make some spending cuts, trimming staff in order to save money.

When asked about possible staffing cuts in February, Sean Spicer told reporters the president remained open to saving money in any number of ways.

"There's going to be a respect for taxpayers in this administration, so that whether it's salaries or actual positions or programs, he's going to have a very, very tough look at how we're operating government, how many positions they're in, what people are getting paid," he said.

She said she planned to focus her efforts on cyberbullying in a speech made shortly before her husband was elected.
