First lady Melania Trump faced booing from middle and high school students as she took the stage at a youth summit on opioid awareness in Baltimore on Tuesday. She was booed again as she walked off the stage.
There were some cheers from the crowd as well as loud jeers as the first lady was introduced at the University of Maryland. The audience remained noisy throughout the five-minute speech, and at times she struggled to be heard over the crowd.
“I am in this fight with you and I am fighting for you. I encourage you, if you are struggling with addiction right now, reach out for support — whether it’s a teacher, parent, friend, grandparent, coach or pastor, talk to an adult in your life that you trust,” Mrs. Trump said as she addressed the thousands of students. “It is never too late to ask for help.”
