Melania Trump jabs at media over coverage of opioid epidemic

First lady Melania Trump on Tuesday rebuked the media for its coverage on ’trivial stories,’ urging reporters to focus on the country’s opioid epidemic. Trump spoke at an event in Las Vegas in the final stop on a three-state tour for her ’Be Best’ campaign to raise awareness around the opioid crisis. She lamented that 72,000 Americans died in 2017 from overdoses.

Lefties will continue refusing to recognize the drug crisis if it means supporting the President. Their hate overwhelms everything.

72k per year dying of opioids is a crisis. 45k die per year due to lack of health care (according to Harvard) but Medicare4All is bad even though its cheaper than current system according to Koch Brothers study (Current system $34 Trillion over 10 years with massive problems and millions uninsured vs $32 Trillion over 10 years and everyone is covered, full stop. $2 Trillion SAVED over 10 years to give more people health care and better quality care at that.) Her husband is the one to talk to about both issues, not the media...

Ms. Trump that's not the Journalists job, that's the politician's, non-profits and Big-Pharma's job. Start actually doing that and send the press releases to the media to report on. But then your husband says its all fake news so what's the point.

Good work from Melania Trump on attempting to put the Opiode epidemic into focus. That being said though I'm still concerned about what Trump is trying to do or hide especially regarding him granting high security clearances to Ivanka and Jared Kushner after his staff heavily advised otherwise. I like what your doing Trump for the Economy and trying to be diplomatic in foreign affairs as well as wanting to preserve the freedom of speech and expression on college campuses particularly regarding conservative voices. But I and the American people also want Transparency and the knowledge to determine accountability. I am also gravely dissatisfied with removing the drown strike civilian fatality reports which are unjustified as it is not self defensive but instead an offensive action! Stop attempting to be less Transparent with us! I want the country to do well I really do but I also want a President who can be honest to his constituents. Please try to resolve this. Don't make me question who I will vote for in 2020. I want what works but I also want honesty.
