"I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world", Trump told reporter Tony Llamas.

Melania Trump isn't just an anti-bullying advocate, she says she's a victim, as well.

First lady Melania Trump admitted on Thursday that she can not trust certain people who work in the White House, telling ABC News that "you always need to watch your back".

Trump's experiences inspired her Be Best campaign, dedicated to the emotional, physical and social well-being of kids, with pillars including managing children's health, social media use and the consequences of the opioid addiction epidemic.

The first lady told ABC News she has advised her husband about who she believes he can trust, but that her husband remains independent in making staffing decisions. I don't support either, but if we're going to talk about people who have been bullied based on their appearance or their perceived "un-Americanness", I don't think Melania can put herself anywhere near the top of that list. "You always need to watch your back". The special is called "Being Melania - The First Lady". She didn't name names but said she let her husband know about them.

The comments from the 48-year-old Trump came in a wide-ranging interview given to ABC News last week in Kenya, during her four-nation solo trip to Africa.

Melania Trump says her husband's politics are hurting her attempts to partner with aid organizations. Trump noted, however, that there are still those working in the White House right now that Mr. Trump can't trust.

Melania Trump was the topic of the morning on "The View", as both her controversial words and equally troubling fashion choices sparked a heated debate at the table.

"Being Melania - The First Lady" airs on ABC on Friday (US time).
