U ponedjeljak je izvješteno da je prva gospođa Melanija Trump objavila naziv svoje misije za pomoć mladima: “Budite najbolji” (Be Best). Izjava Bijele kuće koja je najavila program navodi da će misija biti usredotočena na tri čimbenika koji uključuju djecu: dobrobit, upotreba društvenih medija i zloupotreba narkotika.

Melanija je u govoru koji je održala u Vrtu ruža, rekla: “Kao majku i prvu damu, zabrinjava me da su u današnjem užurbanom i sve povezanijem svijetu djeca sve manje spremna da izraze ili upravljaju svojim emocijama i često se okreću destruktivnom i ovisničkom ponašanju poput zlostavljanja, ovisnosti o drogama ili čak samoubojstvu”.
Unatoč Melanijnim dobrim namjerama, njezin slogan je postao predmetom ljevičarskog ismijavanja, koji su bili ushićeni što su dobili priliku da je podcijenjuju zbog njezinog navodnog slabog poznavanja engleskog jezika.
Great! Now Melania is going to have speak in broken English!! Be Best <—- wtf??

Your broken English is charming. Did you mean “Be Better”? Or “He’s A Beast!” ?
Blink once for help and twice for help & vodka.

That’s funny. Nobody has ever heard her speak anything but broken English and her native porn star tongue.

Nice of Melania Trump to take the winning suggestion from the 2nd grade remedial English student for her Be Best campaign.

Be “the” best ? Be “your” best ? No one in your office could tell you how English works ? It sounds like an eastern European barking orders at some border checkpoint during WWII.

Melania really unveiled #BeBest during #TeacherAppreciationWeek with broken English and a rag tag sign that looks like it was painted by Kindergarteners in the dark whose cookies were confiscated. Bless. pic.twitter.com/IexcAJJmqa

Melania's new platform is called #BeBest? Is it supposed to mirror her broken English?
MELANIA: Cheeldren, Be Best!

Neki su odlučili uzvratiti udarac, uključujući:
So I guess it is cool to mock folks when English isn't their first language now? Is it just the Melania or all all immigrants fair game?
I'm just curious how much the ground rules have changed in the last year because I was brought up to think that's always wrong 🤔 https://t.co/ul8oPVB1YR

Dear everyone making fun of Melania’s accent right now,
Melania speaks six different languages:
She’s probably smarter than you so you should probably shut up. pic.twitter.com/gUzKAyFWhb
