Trump sends mean tweets, first lady talks positivity online

WATCH: Did Melania just take a shot at Trump in her latest anti-cyberbullying speech?

US first lady Melania Trump (L) listens to University of Texas student Joseph Grunwald recount how he was bullied in high school during a Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention summit.

Yet as she was issuing the warning on the outskirts of Washington DC, Donald Trump was in another part of the city sending barbed tweets about his political foes. Add Melania Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Melania Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Mrs. Trump delivered brief remarks to help open a government-sponsored summit called Federal Partners on Bullying Prevention, encouraging social media and technology companies to provide more opportunities for young people to share ideas for how to be good citizens online. She recently launched a US -based effort focused on the well-being of children.

"In today's global society, social media is an inevitable part of our children's daily lives", Trump said at a cyberbullying summit in Rockville, Maryland. "It can be used in many positive ways, but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly".

"Most children are more aware of the pitfalls and benefits of social media than adults", said the first lady, saying that adults should be more willing to talk openly with children in order to "help them navigate this often hard topic".

The president also ridiculed special counsel Robert Mueller as "disgraced and discredited", and called for the firing of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

The star pivot spoke to general manager Kevin Colbert and head trainer John Norwig before exiting the session. Roethlisberger "sustained a hit today in practice", Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin said in a statement.

The first lady's communications director on Monday defended her advocacy on the issue, in spite of the contrast it draws to President Trump's social media habits, as something that should be celebrated. "The president is proud of her commitment to children and encourages her in all that she does".

Last week he launched a scathing attack on former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman over her new-tell all book which lashes the president, writing: 'When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out.

"Girlfriend's lack of self-awareness & any sense of shame for her husband's use of the Presidency to bully others, is hard to ignore", tweeted political strategist and CNN commentator Ana Navarro. She rejected his advice, and publicly said she was willing to face the criticism.

"She's addressed this before".

In a White House with a President who makes his own rules - especially on social media - his wife has faced criticism for being unable to curb her own husband's behavior.
