The first lady was talking about her “Be Best” campaign, which has been reaching “new heights,” according to a White House statement. Trump plans to name 21 “ambassadors” from key agencies in the administration to further her “goal of educating children and parents about the issues they face, and promoting programs and services.”
Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!https://t.co/VXxwgg6DFz
