Melania Trump set to address bullying in surprise Detroit school visit

Saying the future of every nation rests with children and that "no child should ever feel stalked, terrorized, or bullied," first lady Melania Trump said combating bullying among children was a top priority for her at the U.N. General Assembly last month.

Now, she’s taking action. 

According to CNN, Trump plans to surprise students at a middle school in Detroit on Monday as they are organizing an event called "No One Eats Alone." The event is part of a national campaign to take on bullying by including everyone during lunch.

Meanwhile, President Trump attacked Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson via Twitter on Monday. The representative has been sparring with Trump over the ambush attack that left 4 American soldiers dead in Niger.

"Wacky Congresswoman Wilson is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party, a disaster for Dems," Trump tweeted on Monday. "You watch her in action & vote R!"

When the first lady's communications director was asked about Trump’s behavior, she said Melania Trump acts "independently" from her husband.

"Mrs. Trump is independent and acts independently from her husband. She does what she feels is right, and knows that she has a real opportunity through her role as first lady to have a positive impact on the lives of children," Stephanie Grisham said. "Her only focus is to effect change within our next generation."
