First Lady Melania Trump celebrated an expansion of her “Be Best” initiative on Monday with a tweet claiming she is “[bettering] the lives of children everywhere.”
The tweet accompanied an announcement of “21 BE BEST Ambassadors from key agencies across the Administration to help further the First Lady’s goal of educating children and parents about the issues they face, and promoting programs and services available to help them with today’s challenges.”
Melania also noted the three pillars of her Be Best campaign in the announcement: “the well-being of children, online safety, and combatting opioid abuse.”
Meanwhile, her husband oversaw the placement of 60,000 migrant children into concentration camps, as an increased flow of migrants at the southern U.S. border brought more children into what can only be described as harrowing circumstances.
The well-being of these children has been called into question by many, including a legal team that recently interviewed dozens of children who described squalid conditions while in federal custody.
And the federal government has argued in court that “the immigrant children who are detained should not be entitled to soap, toothbrushes, or beds from the federal government.”
All things considered, Melania’s tweet appears to exclude the migrant children held in U.S. custody.
