Yesterday First Lady Melania Trump introduced her new initiative "Be Best," with a goal of promoting healthy behaviors and ending cyber bullying among children.
"There is one goal to Be Best and that is to educate children about the many issues they are facing today. If we truly listen to what our kids have to say, whether it be their concerns or ideas, adults can provide them the support and tools they need to grow up to be happy and productive adults who contribute positively to society and their global communities," Mrs. Trump said during a Rose Garden ceremony. "There are too many critical issues facing children today, so the three main pillars of Be Best will include wellbeing, social media use, and opioid abuse."
"Together, I believe we should strive to provide kids with the tools they need to cultivate their social and emotional health," she continued. "We can and should teach children the importance of social and self-awareness, positive relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Once a child understands these vital skills, they will be able to communicate openly with one another and instill positive feelings of mutual respect, compassion, and self-esteem."
While discussing the initiative and President Trump's own shortcomings on behavior Monday night, CNN contributor and White House correspondent April Ryan argued Mrs. Trump isn't "culturally American."
"There are a lot of realities that she is dealing with. This is a First Lady who is not culturally American but she is learning the ways," Ryan said.

Did she sneak in?
“CNN Contributor April Ryan: Melania Trump Isn’t Really American, You Know”
Well neither was Obama, so, yeah...there is that.
She is more a citizen than all those ILLEGALS you want to have the vote.
Nor Canadian Ted Cruz.
Would she be “culturally American if she scowled constantly, and bitched about how unfair this country is?
April Fool Ryan is a Joke
That’s rich. An AFRICAN American who spends every waking moment to shove her black unamerican culture down everyone elses throat spouting that a naturalized American immigrant is not part of America or its culture.
Interesting in how her racism and xenophobia that her and her fellow progressives accuse everyone else of having would be so blatant. But her protection since she is Woman, black, demo-communist, journalist et al seems intact and free from critics. Does an America hating democrat really believe in an American culture ?
Funny. Isn’t CNN one that insists that all of the illegal aliens flooding our country for years are “real Americans”?
April probably thinks all those illegals flooding across our borders are Undocumented Americans....................
Support Free Republic, Folks!
April Ryan is a racist. She hates anyone who is not a black democrat.
Not only wasn’t he American; he never expressed LOVE for this country.
Melania, on the other hand, is a TRUE American and expresses her love each and every day. GOD BLESS Melania. HE certainly blessed us when she became First Lady.
April, following the “windy” March; not leading from behind. Only following.
Ping to First Lady Melania's List.
If she helps just one child, isn't she worth being in this country?
Well, neither is Huma.
She may be a citizen but she is not AMERICAN.
She is SO tiresome. I can’t believe Sarah Sanders continues to call on her day after day, as if she is owed something.
Oh, yes, she is.
Unlike those illegals the left kisses.
