The Washington Examiner reports:
First lady Melania Trump is challenging journalists to cover the opioid crisis as often as they publish “idle gossip and trivial stories.” She made the request while speaking in Las Vegas Tuesday at an event with conservative commentator Eric Bolling, whose 19-year-old son died from an overdose in 2017.
Trump appeared to take a jab at the constant “breaking news” alerts about her husband’s administration.
“When we see breaking news on TV or the front pages of newspapers, it is my hope that it can be about how many lives we were able to save through education and honest dialogue. We all have a real opportunity to help this country save lives, and I know these are the real issues that people care about,” she said.
