Donald Trump’s wife has vowed to fight cyber bullying should she become first lady after Tuesday's election.
Melania Trump made the declaration Thursday in her first campaign speech since her hotly contested RNC remarks.
Our culture has become too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers,” Trump said at a rally in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. “We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.”
Twitter went off on Melania following the comment, citing her husband as a cyber bully due to his years of using the microblogging site to trash opponents and those who have spoken out against him.

Melania is also under fire for plagiarizing Thursday’s campaign speech and lifting words from — of all people — her husband’s ex-wife, Marla Maples.
Yair Rosenberg, senior writer at Tablet Magazine, first raised the question.
He claims that Melania took the phrase, “if you could dream it, you could become it,” a line once used by Maples. Melania was speaking her experience as an immigrant building a new life in the United States when she used the phrase.
InsideEdition.com has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
Trump tweeted a photo watching the speech on his campaign plane and applauded Melania at a rally in North Carolina, saying: “She did a great job” and that she was “very brave.”
