First Lady Melania Trump Loudly Booed by Students During Baltimore Opioid Summit

She talked about her "Be Best" initiative, focused on helping future generations and three main pillars: well-being, online safety and opioid abuse, according to her remarks.

Trump was both cheered and booed by the crowd of middle school and high school students after she was introduced by Jim Wahlberg, the brother of actor Mark Wahlberg, at the B'More Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness.

The first lady took her "Be Best" initiative to the B'More Youth Summit, which is meant to raise awareness about the nation's opioid crisis. Boos could also be heard as she began to speak, though they quietened down. It wasn't clear why she was booed, but she delivered her remarks as prepared and didn't appear to acknowledge the booing in any way.

And she tells the students: "I am in this fight with you and I am fighting for you". "Like the previous speaker said, this is not a white or black issue, this is not a political issue, this is not a "I belong to his party, or I belong to that party" issue".

She urged anyone now grappling with addiction to ask someone for help. "I am so proud of you for the bravery it takes to share that you have been strongly affected by the opioid epidemic in some way", Trump said. "Using drugs will only slow you down and prevent you from achieving those goals".

Trump recently labeled the city a "disgusting rat and rodent infested mess", saying no human would want to live there. At the time of his death in October, Cummings was a central player in multiple House investigations of Trump and his administration.
