During Monday's event, the first lady invited Mr. Trump to sign an official proclamation marking May 7 as "Be Best" Day, and he hailed the first lady's initiative as "heartfelt".
However, Trump will not land on just one issue affecting children, instead expanding the platform to include other keynote causes.
"As has been evidenced by the many events Mrs. Trump has participated in during her time as first lady, her focus will be the overall well-being of children".More news: Donald Trump denies he is changing his story on Stormy Daniels payment
Mrs. Trump's announcement also came as her husband remains under intense legal pressure from a special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and is facing questions over $130,000 in hush money paid by one of his attorneys to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump in 2006. "Mrs. Trump wishes to help the next generation by creating change through awareness on a variety of issues that affect children".
As a mother and First Lady, Trump said she wants every child to know that it is "safe to make mistakes and there are supportive adults and friends nearby to catch them" if they fall.
Trump has visited children's hospitals, both here and overseas, and she has also visited schools, including one in MI last October, where she encouraged middle schoolers to practice understanding and self-confidence. Former first lady Michelle Obama made efforts toward improving child education, poverty and nutrition. The first lady lives here at the White House. "Just listen to your heart, but be yourself", she told them.
CNN speculates that the rise in the First Lady's numbers "could likely be due to the sympathy factor", going on to note "numerous salacious stories regarding alleged infidelities in the couple's marriage".More news: Wall St mixed as Fed seen on track for June hike
She also brought focus to the deadly impact opioid addiction has on young children and infants, touching on her past participation in drug addiction roundtables and visits to local treatment facilities.
Trump thanked Goldberg, in attendance at the White House with her family, for the bravery she demonstrated by coming forward.
And in March, Trump convened a group of leaders from various tech companies, including Twitter, Facebook, Google and Snaphat, to talk about children and internet safety, including cyberbullying and positivity in social media.
"I am happy to report that since posting her video, many have watched it and most importantly, people have reached out to offer support and kindness", the first lady said Monday as she recognized Goldberg.More news: #BellewHaye2: Tony Bellew Knocks Out David Haye To Win Rematch
"But it will not stop me for doing what I know is right", she reportedly added.
