Melania Trump gets booed by Baltimore students at "Be Best" event

By

Melania Trump received a far-from-warm welcome at an event for Baltimore middle and high school students on Tuesday at the University of Maryland,Baltimore County. The First Lady was invited to deliver a five-minute speech for the B'More Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness on behalf of her "BE Best" youth program.

But the youth of Baltimore booed and jeered throughout the five-minute speech. The president has likely become accustomed to boos when addressing crowds in the politically liberal DC Metro and surrounding areas. However, CNN's Kate Bennett remarks "in my years covering her, this was the first booing of @FLOTUS by a crowd at one of her solo events."
