First Lady Melania Trump recently revealed that her "Be Best" campaign is inspired by personal experiences.

President Trump said he agrees with the first lady's comments to ABC News that there are still officials in his administration that he can't trust, and said he's actively working to "weed them out".

Pressed about her claim of being most bullied person in the world, the First Lady amended. "I was sexually assaulted" or 'You did that to me.' Because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct.

Speaking in an interview on Thursday with Fox News, Trump himself was asked why people that both he and his wife don't trust are still in his administration.

This is also the same interview where Melania Trump said that no one should come forward with accusations of assault unless they have "really hard evidence". I do stand with women.

Even so, the first lady couldn't totally escape having a frank conversation about #MeToo.

"Well", she said, "some people, they don't work there anymore".

Reflecting on her time in the White House, Melania stated, "I really love to live in Washington and in the White House and, yes, I'm enjoying it".
