The First Lady of the United States (US), Melania Trump is all set to take action on her November 2016 promise to help prevent cyberbullying.

Melania has invited the social media giants from Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Snap to the White House next Tuesday to discuss the measures to prevent online harassment, reported the Washington Post.

As per the reports, Melania plans to grill the tech giants on the steps taken by them to prevent online trolls and the spread of malicious content.

Though, she is not expected to reveal any proposal on the same.

A spokeswoman for Melania told that the first lady has "simply asked for a meeting to discuss one of the many things that impact children."

Melania had pledged to combat the rising menace of cyberbullying, few days before the Donald Trump won the US Presidential election in November 2016, while addressing supporters at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.

"As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers," she said at the time.
