When you are a high-profile politician, dealing with online bullies is part of the job. No one knows this better than First Lady Melania Trump, but she may have gone a little too far by claiming nobody in the world is bullied more than her.
In a revealing interview for the ABC special, Being Melania – The First Lady, Melania opened up about bullying, and how it has affected her job in the White House. While talking with reporter Tom Llamas, Melania confessed that she is “the most bullied person in the world.”
She says that dealing with bullying on a daily basis inspired her to create her Be Best program, which aims to educate the public on the dangers of bullying on the internet.

According to Daily Mail, Melania was also asked about her husband, Donald Trump, and how he handles various issues in the White House. Melania revealed that running the country is never easy and that you always have to be guarded, even around those you trust the most.
She also confessed that there are people who work for her husband that she openly distrusts.
“You always need to watch your back,” she added.
When it comes to controlling her husband, Melania admitted that she wishes he followed her advice more often. She revealed that Trump always asks for her opinion on issues and she tells him exactly how she feels.
But after that, he pretty much decides to do whatever he wants, which is not surprising given his controversial actions over the past two-and-a-half years.
