Melania Trump gave her first speech since the Republican National Convention Thursday afternoon, sharing her plan to minimize cyber bullying against children and teens if she becomes first lady.

The Slovenia-born wife of GOP nominee Donald Trump spoke during an appearance in the swing state of Pennsylvania.

“I will be an advocate for women and for children,” she said, adding that while her husband stays busy on the campaign trail, she is a “full-time mother” to their son, Barron.

“I have the same conversations with my son that you have with your sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, grandchildren and godchildren,” she said. “I do worry about children.”

Mrs. Trump pointed to the “bad side” of social media, adding that “children and teenagers can be fragile” and especially vulnerable to pain when made fun of online, where things have become “too mean and too rough.”

The model-turned-entrepreneur said she would also “work hard to improve everyday life for women,” referencing women in America who live in poverty or without health insurance.

Some Twitter users immediately criticized Mrs. Trump for criticizing bullying in light of her husband’s many inflammatory comments, including his attack of a Gold Star family and lewd remarks about women.

Amid the online criticism of Mrs. Trump was also praise.

Mrs. Trump said that after “hard work as a fashion model” overseas, she wanted to come to America, where “freedom and opportunity were in abundance.” She became a U.S. citizen in 2006, 10 years after moving to America.

“Love for this country is something we immediately shared when I met Donald,” she said.
