First lady Melania Trump has revealed in a candid interview her belief that she's the most bullied person in the world. 

“I’m the most bullied person in the world,” President Trump’s third wife said in a new clip from her upcoming ABC News interview. 

ABC News' Chief National Correspondent Tom Llamas asked Mrs. Trump if she really believed she was the most bullied person in the world, to which the first lady replied, "one of the most." 

In the interview, which airs Friday, she said she wakes up to find a bombardment of messages, so many that she doesn’t even go on Twitter anymore. 

Social media is filled with countless cruel tweets against the first lady, many attacking her intelligence and looks. 

Melania Trump says her own experience with online trolls motivated her to start her Be Best anti-bullying campaign. 

Some point to the horrible bullying that Michelle Obama withstood while she was first lady, including some comments comparing her to a man. 

Speaking of the former first lady, Michelle Obama was given a rock star welcome on the "Today" show Thursday. 

The former first lady discussed life after The White House, including that viral moment when she accepted a cough drop from former President George W. Bush at Sen. John McCain's funeral

"President Bush and I are forever seat mates because of protocol; that's how we sit at all the official functions," Obama said. "So he is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather."

"I didn't realize at the time that anybody noticed what we were doing," she said. "I love him to death. He’s a wonderful man. He’s a funny man."

She said that her bond to Barack Obama is still going strong, but added how “one of the keys to successful marriage is separate bathrooms” which got a massive laugh from the audience. 

The former first lady appeared on the morning show to promote International Day of the Girl, which is dedicated to improving girls' educational opportunities around the world.
