[USA TODAY]: After Donald Trump tweets, a reminder: Melania Trump pledged anti-cyberbulling campaign



After President Trump attacked the hosts of Morning Joe, first lady Melania Trump's office said Thursday that she continues to be "thoughtful" about her anti-cyberbullying platform.

Days before the 2016 election, Melania Trump said in a speech that she intended to fight cyberbullying if her husband was elected.

But in the months since then, the first lady has not yet publicly made any efforts to do so. Back in May, USA TODAY reported that the effort was, per Trump's office, a work in progress.

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday that Trump was "continuing to be thoughtful about her platform."

As far as the insults the president lobbed via Twitter at Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, Grisham said, "As the First Lady has stated publicly, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder."

Whether the first lady's campaign ever moves forward remains to be seen. But that hasn't kept some Twitter users from saying what they think of President Trump's tweets:


Could Donald Trump's Thursday tweets be considered cyberbullying, given that he is the president of the United States and is, thus, more powerful than nearly everyone he interacts with?

Twitter itself declined to say, stating that it does not comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons. (Side note: Read Twitter's policy here.)
