Schumer, who represents Trump's home state of New York in the Senate and also claims an outerborough of New York City as his home, responded minutes later. The first lady announced her "Be Best" program on Monday afternoon in the Rose Garden.    

The initiative, which is geared to address some of the major societal issues facing children today, was designed in part to help highlight the importance of using social media in a positive way. 

Schumer originally opposed the Iran deal in 2015 but said it would be a mistake to walk away from it now.
