PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — First lady Melania Trump touted her “Be Best” program and the Trump administration’s battle against the opioid crisis as she accepted an award from a Florida Christian college.
The first lady told the 550 attendees at Palm Beach Atlantic University’s “Women of Distinction” luncheon Wednesday that her anti-cyberbullying and anti-drug abuse initiative has been a success.
She said the program is teaching children respect and that the Trump administration’s efforts have led to the first drop in U.S. opioid deaths in three decades.
The 2,500-student university says it honored the first lady for her compassion and kindness, calling her a worldwide role model.
