Melania Trump Opens Press Conference on Opioid Crisis: ‘This Can Happen to Any of Us’

First Lady Melania Trump offered opening remarks on Thursday at a press conference where President Donald Trump declared the opioid crisis in the United States to be a public health emergency.

The first lady appeared alongside her husband where she discussed her continued commitment to taking a prominent role in fighting the opioid epidemic, especially after being exposed to the disastrous effects it can have on children.

“I have been participating in meetings and listening sessions, and I have been visiting with people who have been affected by this disease,” Melania said, going on to list the many different interactions she had with families members, friends, and those who suffered directly from drug addiction.

“When I had the honor of visiting Lily’s Place in West Virginia, a recovery center for infants born addicted to drugs, I learned that to help babies succeed, we must help their parents succeed,” Melania Trump said. “By placing a priority of the whole family, Lily’s Place is giving infants the best opportunity to thrive because their parents are being given the support and tools they need to succeed.”
