WASHINGTON | Melania Trump listens as students discuss being civil online

WASHINGTON — Melania Trump is listening to teens talk about their best practices for being civil online.

The first lady’s spokeswoman tweeted Thursday that Mrs. Trump is meeting with students at Microsoft’s office in the nation’s capital. Microsoft created a teen council in 2017 to help improve online safety and promote civility.

Digital civility is one element of a nationwide campaign Mrs. Trump announced this year to focus on child well-being.

Her husband is regularly criticized for his own practices online and has weaponized his Twitter account against his foes.

Mrs. Trump discussed the “Be Best” campaign last week during a stop in London.
