Melania Trump is telling United Nations to "step up" to protect children

Melania Trump is telling United Nations to

CNN's Dana Bash thought there was a "more than a little bit of irony" that Melania Trump would give a speech about the importance of setting a positive example for children based on her husband's behavior. She added, "We must remember that they are watching and listening, so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life's many ethical lessons along the way".

"No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn", she said.

"Nothing could be more urgent or noble a cause then preparing children for adulthood with true moral clarity and responsibility", Trump concluded.

"We must come together for the good of our children, because through them our future will be defined", Trump said, reiterating the importance of teaching children by example the values of empathy and communication.

There have been plenty of Donald Trump handshake moments that have made the rounds on social media and this one adds to the running list.

CNN's Dana Bash found it all very ironic.

Dubbed "the star of the Trump family" by the President, Trump has not yet formally revealed her platform as first lady, but aides say it's coming "soon".

She will deliver the remarks during a lunch at the US Mission to the United Nations in NY.

Sure, we all know President Trump is unorthodox, especially in terms of presidential protocol.

"Maybe the message was to her husband", Bash mused.
