WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Melania Trump is pushing back after photos she tweeted of herself overseeing a White House construction project generated an online backlash.

She sent a new tweet Saturday in which she encouraged everyone “who chooses to be negative & question my work” at the White House to contribute something “good & productive” in their communities.

The first lady's original tweet amounted to a photo progress report on a tennis pavilion she's building on the south grounds.

Some critics said the post was insensitive during the global coronavirus scare.
