In her speech, given in front of Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, a few cabinet secretaries and senior officials, Melania unveiled a program, 'Be Best' which she said would be helpful to tackle opioid abuse, social media pressures and mental health issues among youth people.

She said,

Children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence.

We can and should teach children the importance of social and self-awareness, positive relationship skills and responsible decision making,

Mrs. Trump said.

Let us teach our children the difference between right and wrong, and encourage them to be best in their individual paths in life.

Mrs. Trupm literally didn't brief her initiative, but as per reports, it might include the National Safety Council to encourage people to be proactive, consulting their doctors about opioid abuse and guidelines distributed by the Federal Trade Commission on children's social media activity.
