WASH­ING­TON (HIN­DUS­TAN TIMES), OCT 12, 2018-When asked in an in­ter­view why she chose cy­ber bul­ly­ing as a pet cause, US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s wife had a surprising an­swer.

“I could say I’m the most bul­lied per­son on the world,” Me­la­nia Trump told ABC News in an in­ter­view that took place dur­ing her trip this month to Africa.

When pressed, the US First Lady said that she could cer­tainly be “one of them, if you re­ally see what peo­ple say­ing about me.”

That, she said, is “why my ‘Be Best’ ini­tia­tive is fo­cus­ing on so­cial me­dia and on­line be­hav­ior.”

ABC on Thurs­day re­leased clips of the in­ter­view ahead of a longer piece set to air Fri­day.

The 48-year-old former model may be smart­ing from on­line and press mock­ery for her at­tire dur­ing last week’s trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.

Her use of a white pith hel­met while on sa­fari in Kenya drew com­par­isons to a 19th cen­tury colo­nial ad­min­is­tra­tor.

At her fi­nal stop in Egypt she wore white pants, a pleated white shirt and a black tie with a beige jacket -- with com­par­isons to Michael Jack­son, fic­tional char­ac­ter Car­men Sandiego, and the French ar­chae­ol­o­gist vil­lain in the first In­di­ana Jones movie.
