Melania Trump has doubts about some of the people who rub elbows with her husband in the West Wing. She thinks there are people there he can't trust, the first lady tells ABC News' Tom Llamas in a clip from an interview filmed during her trip to Africa. Trump says she gives her husband her "honest opinions" on individuals, with the result that "some people, they don't work there anymore," per CNN. But "you always need to watch your back," she says.

Trump also paints herself as the perfect person to be leading a campaign against online bullying: "I could say that I'm the most bullied person [in] the world … one of them, if you really see what people are saying about me," she says. Referring to the effect bullying has on kids, she adds, "we need to educate the children [about] social-emotional behavior ... That's very important." Trump spoke about the #MeToo movement in an earlier clip. The full interview, touching on infidelity and child migrants, airs Friday. (More Melania Trump stories.)
