opinion Melinda Henneberger Opinion columnist Published 7:20 p.m. UTC May 29, 2018 Whenever I hear Donald Trump described as the most pro-life president ever, I think well then, I would not want to meet the runner-up. Pro-lifers, and yes, I am one, do not debate which people are people.

Just as Hillary Clinton was once scrutinized during her husband Bill’s sex scandal, Melania faced the cameras even as Donald Trump kept changing his story about an alleged extramarital encounter with the pornographic film actor Stormy Daniels. “As a mother and as first lady, it concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and often times turn to forms of destructive or addictive behaviour such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide,” Melania told an audience in bright sunshine in the White House Rose Garden, which is normally reserved for events hosted by the president. “I feel strongly that as adults, we can and should be best at … [Read more...] about Melania Trump launches campaign to help children stay ‘healthy and balanced’
